Alaskans asked to Pick.Click.Give

First Lady Donna Walker and Toni Mallott, the wives of Gov. Bill Walker and Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott, are asking fellow Alaskans to be generous in offering a share of their Permanent Fund checks to nonprofits across the state.

In a message posted on Jan. 10, the two women said Alaskans are known for banding together when times are tough and celebrating as one when great strides are made.

Since its inception in 2009 Pick.Click.Give has dispersed nearly $17 million to worthy causes around the state, and even the smallest donation can make a big difference, they said.

At the end of online PFD applications, Alaskans can opt to give $25 or more to any of 670 eligible organizations. “Please join us in giving back and making Alaska the greatest place to call home,” they said.
