Tiny Tickets are those BART tickets that have tiny bits of value on them that are often left in pockets or thrown out. With the Tiny Tickets Program, you can donate your left over tickets to help fund Dance Out Diabetes programs.

Here’s how: Collect all your Tiny Tickets, and send them off by December 1st to:

P.O. Box 14002
