Several dozen savvy and generous listeners have nearly doubled KBOO's total donations in the Give!Guide in just the past 10 days. Thanks very much to all our 2009 Give!Guide donors thus far.
Now it would be so amazing if we could double our current total again in another 10 days (or less). Please help us progress toward our goal of $20,000 by month's end. Only with your help, possibly encouraged by some cool incentives, can we get there. Plus, everyone who donates at least $25.00 through the Give!Guide can attend a special private show with Deelay Ceelay at Berbati’s (10 SW 3rd Avenue) on Friday, January 15. Deelay Ceelay is a collaboration between video artist / musician Chris Lael Larson and percussionist Delaney Kelly, fusing live instrumentation with synched projected visuals.
If you've never contributed money to KBOO, using the Give!Guide is a fantastic way to do so, especially if you are under 36 years old. This is because one major goal of the Guide, aside from raising money for selected non-profits, is to encourage younger people to become familiar with the age-old practice of charitable giving. Plus, the group raising the most money, and the most separate donations, from people under 36 will receive extra money in the form of a prize. A little friendly competition never hurt, and your gift right now could help move us up in the rankings.
And as a special enticement for December, if you contribute $100.+ to KBOO through the Give!Guide you will receive a copy of the 2010 Portland Chinook Book, worth thousands of dollars in coupons to local businesses.
