by Kenzie on November 15, 2014

Do you have left over $$ on your BART ticket? Use it to support DOD!

“Tiny Tickets” is a new campaign issued by BART and the East Bay Community to encourage BART riders to donate the unused portion of their BART tickets. 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
San Francisco, CA 94114

The funds will go to continue our monthly dance and health screening events. Thank you for your support!
