2016-17 "SHARE THE HAIR" Challenge!

Share the Hair Challenge

Announcing Day of Giving "Share the Hair" Challenge!
Please support TRYPO on The Pittsburgh Foundationís Day of Giving on Wednesday, September 21, 2016. Please go HERE on September 21 and support TRYPO.

Yes, this fund-raising day is really important to us... you'll feel really good about yourself...it's for a great cause... we have over 180 students and families who will benefit...we've raised a $10,000 matching pool... we work really hard to fund-raise over 50% of our budget in order to keep our tuition rates low... etc.

But we also like to go all in. If TRYPO hits its goal of $20,000 in donated dollars on the Day of Giving, I (Executive Director Lindsey Nova) will dye my hair BLUE. Yes, really.

I'm going to put my hair where my heart is.
Because I care enough about what I do to go blue.

And you can too! After you make your donation or schedule your donation,please post the "Share the Hair" meme. (You will find it on TRYPO's Facebook and Twitter profile pics.)

Don't want to remember to do it the right day? New feature this year: you can preschedule your donation as early as NOW! (do it, do it, do it!)

UPDATE: At 6:45pm today we officially hit the $20k mark! WHOOHOO! That is whoohoo for TRYPO. (Condolences to my hair...) But let's not stop there.

Did you know? TRYPO awarded over $26,000 in need-based, merit-based scholarship awards and affiliation discounts during the 2015-16 season? Approximately 20% of our over 170 unique students receive some sort of assistance. We work hard to make sure any family can participate in a TRYPO program. Please continue to help us blow our original goal out of the water! Every dollar we raise today helps us provide great opportunities for Pittsburgh kids!
