                                    Dear Friends,Muscles for FSH

On June 23rd there is an exciting    opportunity to put more "muscle" in your donation to Friends of FSH Research. 
Give BIG is a community-wide giving challenge created by
The Seattle Foundation that will increase the size of your
donations to us. 

 This one-day, online charitable giving event will rally together our community on behalf of the amazing nonprofit organizations in King County - this includes Friends of FSH Research!

GiveBIG will grow your generosity in several ways:
·        Grow your gift! The Seattle Foundation and local businesses will match a share of every contribution made through The Seattle Foundation's online Giving Center between 7 a.m. and midnight on June 23.
·        Win a Golden Ticket! During the day, if your donation is selected at random, Friends of FSH Research will receive an additional $1,000 from GiveBIG's sponsors.

Your gift will help us support critical Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSH) research.  Help us make a treatment or cure to this debilitating condition a reality now!
