Give BIG: please help Exped support WWTA

Exped is an enthusiastic and active supporter of Washington Water Trails Association. We are a corporate sponsor of WWTA and we give our time to help maintain the campsites that make up the network of water trails in Washington state. We love to paddle and camp and WWTA helps us do both. 

On Wednesday, May 2, friends and supporters of WWTA will have the opportunity to invest in the work they do through The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG campaign.  This is an especially important day to support WWTA.

GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make the Pacific NW a healthier and more vital place to live.

Gifts to WWTA will be stretched further, thanks to generous contributions from GiveBIG sponsors. The way it works is the more money Washington Water Trail Association raises through The Seattle Foundation’s website on May 2, the more money WWTA will receive from the GiveBIG stretch pool. This “stretch pool” is the pool of contributions donated by generous GiveBIG sponsors. So, if WWTA receives 3% of the money donated through GiveBIG on May 2, it will receive 3% of the stretch pool!

Golden Ticket: Throughout the day on May 2, donors will be chosen at random to have an additional $1,000 given to the organization [WWTA!] that received their donation. And, the selected donor will also be eligible to win a Starbucks Gift Card worth $100!

All you need to do—in order for your donation to qualify for both the stretch pool and Golden Ticket—is to donate through WWTA’s PROFILE PAGE on The Seattle Foundation's website. Once on the WWTA profile 
page simply click the "DONATE NOW" button and donate with a credit card. 

Please consider joining Exped in supporting Washington Water Trails Association in this way.
