We all have them. At least those of us who ride BART do. Those pesky little change amounts left on those white and blue striped tickets. Not enough to get you home after work or to the city for shopping, but enough for you to hold on to them. You’re in a hurry, you don’t have time to add money to them, what to do?
How about donating them to a good cause? Instead of throwing them away, donate those “Tiny Tickets” to La Casa de las Madres! Ten cents to you means a whole lot more to this nonprofit agency. La Casa has teamed up with the East Bay Community Foundation and BART to collect your unwanted tiny BART tickets and turn them into valuable cash to support our services for survivors of domestic violence.
La Casa needs your Tiny Tickets, magnetized or not. Check your briefcase, your purse. Collect your tickets. Ask your friends, your co-workers, your religious groups, those at your neighborhood cafe. Help spread the word. Every little bit helps!
How does it work?
La Casa delivers our collected tickets to BART three times a year. The transit district then determines a total ticket value, and the East Bay Community Foundation disperses those funds back to La Casa. It’s that simple! For more information on the Foundation, visit its website.
Please mail or drop your Tiny Tickets off in person to:
