The Right Brain Initiative’s biggest grassroots fundraiser of the year, the Willamette Week Give!Guide is officially underway. This year, we are aiming to top last year’s campaign by raising $13,000. In order to meet this goal by December 31, we are going to need a few helping hands.

Fortunately, donating through the Give!Guide is completely painless and the best part is, you get more than a pat on the back for your kindness. Your generosity is rewarded with some sweet, sweet prizes:

  • All  donors to Right Brain will receive a free scoop of Ruby Jewel ice cream.
  • All our donors will also be entered to win Club Level Blazers tickets to the Portland v. Denver game on January 23rdClub Level seats not only give you a glorious view of the court,  but the tickets include a free buffet and concessions.
  • The prize train doesn’t end here. Donate just $10 and Give! Guide will reward you (and your stomach) with Stumptown coffee, ¿Por Que No? tacos and Salt & Straw ice cream.

Not wanting to be left out, the kind folks at the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund will also match every single donation over $250!

Once again, we are competing for the most donors under 36, a title we have won three years in a row. But we have some tough competition this year in the Education category, so gather all your under-36 pals and help us win the $500 prize.

On the fence about giving? Remember that with every donation, you not only get crazy amazing prizes, but YOU also get to make a difference the lives of Portland area public school students. We think its a win-win.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we are grateful to be a part of the Guide, a crucial fundraiser for us. We are grateful to bring creativity to 14,000 children this year. And we are grateful for the community that rallies each year to help us do this work. Thank you for helping us serve more kids each and every year.

Ready, set, give!
