3 Reasons to Pick. Click. Give.

On the fence about making a Pick. Click. Give. donation this year? You’re not alone. Less than 5 percent of Alaskans have donated through Pick. Click. Give. so far this year.

donate-hands-fbTo help you make your decision, take a look at these three great reasons to Pick. Click. Give. to Alaska Children’s Trust:

  1. You love a challenge. Let’s be honest – Pick. Click. Give. is off to a rough start. Donations statewide are down dramatically – including ours. We need your help to reach our $6,000 goal. We understand that not everyone can afford to make a large donation. But if we all give together (even just $25!), it adds up.
  1. You can double your dividend. Why just get one PFD check when you can get TWO?! Pick. Click. Give. when you file by March 31 and be entered to win an extra PFD. Five lucky Alaskans will receive an additional dividend PLUS an extra dividend will go to the nonprofit of their choice.
  1. You love kids and want to keep them safe. That’s the reason we are here! Everything we do is focused on preventing child abuse and neglect in Alaska. Your Pick. Click. Give. donation helps us do that.

So what do you say? Will you help us reach our goal by Pick. Click. Giving just $25?
Do it today by logging onto the PFD website.

If you’ve already donated, don’t worry – it’s not too late! It’s easy to log back into your application and add a Pick. Click. Give. contribution.

Thank you for your support!

We Can All Pick. Click. Give. Something

Pick. Click. Give. is off to a rough start this year. pcg-logo-fb-profileThe number of people giving and the amount pledged so far is down dramatically from last year. (There is some good news – the people who are giving are giving at the same level as previous years.)

We at Alaska Children’s Trust are seeing the change in Pick. Click. Give. contributions, too. Last year, Alaskans donated $6,125 to ACT through Pick. Click. Give. This year, a month into the campaign, we’re at $700. (A big thank you to those who have donated so far!)

It’s a hard year for everyone. Money is tight for a lot of Alaskans, and there’s a lot of uncertainty about the state’s economic future. And unfortunately, money troubles can put even more stress on families, and sometimes that stress can lead to increased risk for child abuse and neglect.

So what we’re saying is that your support is more important than ever.

We understand that not everyone can afford to make a large donation to support our mission to prevent child abuse and neglect. But, as the saying goes, every little bit helps. Seriously. No matter how little that is.

Our 2017 Pick. Click. Give. goal is modest. We want to raise $6,000, which is just under what you all donated last year. We’re already at $700, so that means $5,300 left to go. Now $5,300 might sound like a big number, but look at it this way: If 212 people gave just $25, we’d be at our goal!

So what do you think? Can you be one of the 212 people who step up and say, “I can give $25 to help prevent child abuse and neglect!”?

And if you completed your PFD application but have not participated in Pick. Click. Give., remember that you can log back into your PFD application and make your Pick. Click. Give. contribution.

Together we can prevent child abuse and neglect.
