Supporters can GiveBIG to WTBBL!
Supporters of the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library have a chance to put their money where their hearts are by donating to WTBBL during GiveBIG, a one-day online charitable giving event that runs Tuesday from midnight to midnight.
Last year’s GiveBIG campaign, organized by The Seattle Foundation, raised $11.1 million from 30,000 donors.
“This is WTBBL’s third year participating in GiveBig and we are thankful for support from donors and The Seattle Foundation,” said Secretary of State Kim Wyman. “Last year WTBBL raised $5,000, and our goal for this year is $6,500. Your donations benefit patrons all over Washington, ranging in age from birth to 100-years-plus. WTBBL’s patrons are veterans, students, parents, workers and seniors. They are your friends, family and neighbors! Help them and WTBBL by donating.”
Each credit card donation made to WTBBL anytime on Tuesday will receive a prorated portion of a Seattle Foundation $1 million matching funds pool.
Here are examples of how a donation to WTBBL through GiveBIG can help:
- $10 can buy a digital cartridge for an audio book
- $35 can produce an audio book
- $75 can produce a braille book
