A Big Day of Giving message from KCRA’s Edie Lambert
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
As journalists, many of us will be covering the BIG Day of Giving, an event supporting non-profits throughout this region.
As public relations professionals, many of us will be promoting the BIG Day of Giving.
As members of the Sacramento Press Club, we are also urging you to become a part of the story.
Many of you know I am a longtime member of the Sacramento Press Club, and as a former board member I ran the scholarship program. I had the pleasure of meeting the next generation of journalists, students who believe deeply in the value of good journalism despite the uncertain job market they face after graduating. This year, our goals are to engage 100 donors and raise $8,000 on May 3rd. That is enough money to fund a full scholarship.
The BIG Day of Giving is fast approaching!
How you can help in just two weeks, on May 3rd:
1) Starting at 12:00 midnight, visit https://bigdayofgiving.org/npo/sacramento-press-club and make a tax-deductible gift of as little as $25 or as much as you’re able to contribute. You will have 24 hours to make your donation; all giving will end at 11:59 p.m. the same day.
2) Spread the word. Tell your friends, post on Facebook, and tweet about it. This is an opportunity to be part of something really big. Help us get there!

I am truly grateful for some wonderful opportunities and generous mentors during college and early in my career. I consider my work with SPC’s scholarship program part of my way to pay it forward. I hope you’ll join me on May 3rd. Together, we can make a BIG impact on journalism students who are smart, motivated and inspiring.
