Once a year the Seattle Foundation (our partners in the Light a Fire nonprofit awards) issues a call to action—to "give big" to your favorite King County nonprofit during a 24-hour window. Last year's GiveBig day raised $7.4 million for the roughly 1,100 nonprofits in the region, and there are even more organizations that need our help in 2013.

The time has come, folks. May 15. Midnight to midnight. Consider making a donation online to any of the 1,400 nonprofits listed on Seattle Foundation's website, including dozens of area arts organizations. Remember: Museums, theaters, dance troupes, film centers, and lecture series are nonprofits. Help keep the arts alive.
