Staff and volunteers at the Vera Project are packing up and prepping for the Sasquatch Music Festival this weekend at the Gorge in George, WA! This year Vera is teaming up with other great organizations like Washington Bus, Rain City Rick Camp, and Reel Girls for a weekend of music, outreach, fun and games. Stop by the tent to participate in live silkscreen or audio demonstrations, and pick up a freshly printed, limited edition Vera Project bandana or one of a kind button! Be sure to follow the Vera Project on Instagram and Twitter to see the best Sasquatch ink and fashion, and get tips on how to make this your best Sasquatch ever. Staff and volunteers will be posting recaps right here on the blog all weekend, featuring interviews with artists and fans.

THE SEATTLE FOUNDATION’S THIRD ANNUAL GIVEBIG EVENT:
SAVE THE DATE! On May 15th, we are participating in Seattle’s biggest day of giving of the year!
Make your gift to The Vera Project grow with The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG one-day, online giving event aimed to inspire people to give generously to local nonprofit organizations, like Vera, who make your community a vibrant, vital place to live. In 2012, over 37,800 donors gave a staggering $7.43M to Seattle area non-profits through The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG challenge. Here’s how it works:
1. Visit The Vera Project’s page on the GiveBIG website on Wednesday, May 15.
2. Click Donate Now, and then click Make a credit card donation.
3. Make a gift of any size.
That’s it! Every donation made to Vera during GiveBIG earns Vera a pro-rated portion of the GiveBIG stretch pool. The amount of the stretch depends on how much is earned in total donations on GiveBIG day and the size of the stretch pool (which totals $800,000!!!) – so the more Vera raises, the further your gift is stretched! The only catch is that, in order to count towards our giveBIG total, gifts must be made on May 15, 2013, with a credit card, through SeattleFoundation.org. Read more about why it’s the best day to give, and where your donation goes after the jump!Read the full post HERE.
On Wednesday, May 15th The Vera Project will be the beneficiary of Little Big Show #6. Held at the Neptune Theater, the concert will feature one of our favorite artists, Jim James of My Morning Jacket. 100% of ticket sales from this show will benefit Vera’s concerts and educational programs for all ages. Thanks to our friends Starbucks, Seattle Theatre Group and KEXP for making this happen.
KEXP + Starbucks + STG bring you Little Big Show, a concert series that gives big love to Seattle arts organizations. Several times a year, they find a great band or two, give them the stage at the Neptune and donate 100% of ticket sales to a local non-profit. To date, they have raised over $55,000 – proving out to be the little show with a big effect. Vera is thrilled to join this important community partnership for the sixth Little Big Show!Read the full post HERE.
