GiveBIG this year and help WASHAA continue to educate and respond to our community with health advocacy information and resources.  No one should go it alone when dealing with a health care problem.  You can make an impact starting today! GiveBIG is on Wednesday, May 10, but you can pledge your commitment to WASHAA's  GiveBIG efforts right now. Life is busy. Early giving means you can donate when you have the time.

Thanks to a generous donor's early commitment, all gifts up to $3,000 will be matched dollar for dollar for GiveBIG. Help us by scheduling your gift today!

Early gifts are processed at the start of May 10, giving us a head start on the GIVEBIG day. All gifts received through the GIVEBIG campaign are fully tax deductible. Click the button below to get started and use #GiveBigWASHAA to let us know of your generous contribution!
Wishing you good health,

Robin Shapiro
Chair, WASHAA Board
