Every December we hold our Month of Giving when we ask you – our Frends – to nominate local 501c3 organizations to receive grants. Last year we donated $11,000 to local opioid crisis charities. This year along with Twiddle, we are thrilled to announce a partnership with Pin Daddy (Danny Steinman’s Jam Art) who generously donated his time and art to help us reach a very lofty 2019 goal of donating over $25,000 to local charities nominated by you.
In the coming weeks we will be releasing a series of items featuring Danny’s WLF design. There will be limited edition pins in Danny’s distinctive style and then, with Twiddle, a limited timed offering of T-Shirts and Sweatshirts which will feature the WLF design on the back and Twiddle softball logo on the front. We will also be offering an open edition WLF pin variant at that time (pictured here). All orders will deliver before Christmas.
100% of the net proceeds of this campaign will go to local charities with 80% supporting the month of giving and 20% going to the White Light Scholarships at Castleton University. And, if that is not enough, thanks to many of you and your birthday fundraisers, community efforts like WLF variants and fan art and auction proceeds (or just random acts of kindness), the foundation is in position to match $10,000. Any donations during this time will increase the match.
So, let’s get the nominations started – please share with us local organizations important to you. They do not have to be a specific cause (we are not limiting it to the opioid crisis for example) but they do need to be 501c3 domestic public charities and cannot have been recipients of direct fundraising at a White Light Foundation event (let’s spread the love around). On this Facebook post enter the name, website/facebook/instagram link or send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will limiting the number of charities to 31 per $10,000 raised and if we receive more nominations than we can accommodate, we will randomly select from the list of organizations and the other charities will be included in our next campaign.
Please make sure you like/follow our page as announcements, drops and previews will come from here.
Love (The Month of Giving) Relentlessly.
The “Frankenfoote Coloring Book” is coming this Frendsgiving at The Capitol Theatre. White Light Foundation will use the net proceeds to benefit youth and children’s programs around the country, both financially and through Frankie Coloring Books!
