Mission: The World is Fun is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)3 organization devoted to introducing individuals, businesses, and those in need and encouraging them to participate in a creative community that enriches Seattle with the common belief that: yes, the world is fun.
Geographic areas served: Seattle, WA
Programs: Community core: our community core program works within seattle to engage volunteers in active participation in their community and philanthropy by partnering with other local nonprofit organizations and planning group volunteer opportunities and events that serve as the catalyst in connecting new volunteers with organizations in need. In 2011, we developed 58 such events. We built a volunteer list of over 1,500 seattle volunteers and we provided 5,028 volunteer hours for the community. Through our beard & stache fest event we raised $5,311 for treehouse, an organization the helps foster kids in the area. We did this all with a 100% volunteer run staff comprised of 20 dedicated individuals.
critical core: our critical core provided over 900 meals for seattle's food insecure, served through three local organizations: jubilee women's center, rose of lima house, and youthcare's orion center. Twif also developed a program that meets the volunteer needs of an evening cooking program and the shelter's need for an early mealtime.
corporate core: our corporate core program worked with local businesses to create team building volunteer opportunities for them to strengthen their staff, build morale, and connect with their community.
