Donating to Right Brain: make a habit of it, and soon!

February 8th, 2012 by Right Brain Team


What bad habit did you resolve to relinquish in 2012? Whatever it was, we all know that the easiest way to kick an unwanted habit is to replace it with a good one. Here’s one idea…

After hearing the demand from the public, we’ve just made it easier than ever for you to make your contribution to the future imaginations of all Portland area K-8 students. Through our brand new Facebook Causes page, you can show your support by donating $10 or more to our arts integration programming in Portland’s public schools.

So how does this relate to the emptiness left in the wake of your New Year’s resolution, you ask? Giving through our Causes site is the SOLE way that you as a supporter can donate to Right Brain on a monthly basis without lifting a finger. Simply click on the site’s “Give” button, and you’ll receive the option to make either a one-time donation or an automatic monthly installment. A monthly donation to foster the creative capacities of K-8 students in our very own community? That’s a habit worth keeping, if you ask us!

BUT WAIT. It gets better: If we can raise $1,500 thorough our Causes site by February 29, First Independent Bank will generously match the donations! In other words, by just getting the ball rolling, you’ll end up doing double the work.

The first step is to follow us on Facebook if you aren’t already. From there, visit the Causes section of our page (find the link in the left hand column of the main page). Then, bingo! You can choose the amount that suits your fancy.

We hope you’ll consider this simplest of opportunities to give to Right Brain. And if you need to fan the flames of your giving spirit, make sure to check out the new images of classroom residencies from this school year while you’re on our Facebook page. That should do the trick.
