Dear Just in Time Supporters,

These past few weeks have been a challenge for us all. We’ve had to process the rapidly evolving news about COVID-19 and determine how to follow changing directives and local developments to make the most responsible choices possible.

Our annual fundraiser, Walk the Talk, was scheduled this past Saturday, with anticipated minimum net revenue of $800k, which is 20% of our annual revenue. It was cancelled on Thursday, so the first course of action was to use our digital tools to invite the 450 guests to Walk the Talk Online with a “virtual” paddle raise and auction sale, and so far we’ve raised almost $205,000 which is so helpful and encouraging.  
 
Today we’ve slashed the auction item prices, most of which have expiration dates that are a year out, so you can get some great deals on packages you can use later! And we are opening the paddle raise and auction sale to all of our JIT supporters. This is your last opportunity to participate in our Virtual Walk the Talk Paddle Raise and Auction!

Our goal is to make it possible for everyone to find a way to contribute to the success of the youth we serve. We hope you’ll find the option that works best for you. Feel free to share with your networks and maybe even inspire someone new.

And, for a special treat, and to remind us all what’s really important, we invite you to view our new and inspiring JIT video:

Sincerely,
Don & the JIT Team

Thank You to Our 2020 Walk the Talk Sponsors!
