GiveBIG to TeenTix on May 15th
On Wednesday, May 15th, TeenTix will participate in GiveBIG, a 24-hour online charitable giving event, for the very first time.
We are thrilled to be a part of the Seattle Foundation's gigantic giving party. Any money that you give to TeenTix on that day -- whether it's $5, $10, $20, or $2000 -- will be stretched by the Seattle Foundation into an even bigger gift! PLUS, your gift could win one of the hourly Golden Tickets, which means that TeenTix will get an additional $1000 to help keep art affordable and accessible for everyone. Hooray!
If TeenTix has opened the door to experiences that you (or your kids) wouldn't have been able to have without us, we need your help!
Here's what we're asking you to do:
1. Give to TeenTix on May 15th at www.seattlefoundation.org
3. Tell your friends about GiveBIG, and let them know how TeenTix has impacted your life. You can make a big difference for thousands of teens just by donating to TeenTix on May 15th and letting your friends know that you did!
You can see videos of TeenTix members talking about what TeenTix means to them (and upload your own!) on our YouTube page.
THANK YOU so much for being a part of the TeenTix community. Together, we can keep empowering teen arts audiences for years to come.

It was all made possible by the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG event, a one-day, online, charitable giving party that yesterday earned 11.1 million dollars (no, that's not a typo) for local non-profits. WHAAAATTTT? That is off the HOOK'S hook.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to everyone who gave to TeenTix yesterday, especially you current and former TeenTix members. Remember, young people + philanthropy = change. We are humbled to know that TeenTix is the kind of...Read more

I fell in love, at the tender age of 14, with TeenTix.
It was exciting, and new, and unpredictable, and visceral, and thrilling. It fed my curiosity and desire to embrace the unknown, step out of proverbial ‘boxes’ and ‘zones’, at a vital time my life (and ALL LIVES, for that matter); it stimulated my enthusiasm to explore and embrace experiences that I otherwise would not have been exposed to.
TeenTix unveiled to me and my friends a side of my city (and LIFE, for that matter) that I had simply known nothing about. Suddenly that which had been velvet-roped off became accessible...Read more

This Wednesday, May 15th, is GiveBIG. What's GiveBIG? It's a once-a-year, online, charitable giving party hosted by the Seattle Foundation. Tons of local non-profits participate in it. This year, for the first time, TeenTix is one of them.
Every donation made to TeenTix online on May 15th will instantly grow, because the Seattle Foundation provides a "stretch pool" of extra money that they slap on to each donation. So, for example, your...Read more
