GiveBIG is an annual online giving challenge hosted by the Seattle Foundation, and it's right around the corner.
This year, thanks to two generous Room One donors, the first $11,000 donated through the Foundation's website will be matched at 50%!
Every day we are reminded that good neighbors take good care of each other, and we hold this belief close at Room One. Take a minute to hear how you touch the lives of people in this beautiful rural community, you are part of something special.
- We support each other in the times we need it most, with resources that matter.
- We challenge and move our systems (health policy, housing, contraception access, living wages) to respond to our real needs and build strength and opportunity among those who are most marginalized.
- We build programs that work for our communities, programs that interrupt cycles of violence, inequity and poor health (check out #OkanoganHealthyYouth, these youth are extraordinary).
And we don't do it alone. Our community's voices, people we work with every day, guide our strategy and determine our impact--it's "neighboring" in action and it's what makes community solutions work.
By joining us on this powerful day of giving, you are taking care of our neighbors in ways that make a difference. Thank you for being part of Room One and thank you for giving BIG on May 10th!
With gratitude for all that you do,
The Room One Staff and Board
