The Spirit of 12 Partners for 2014 include Boys & Girls Clubs Washington State Association, Camp Fire Snohomish, Girl Scouts of Western Washington, Treehouse and YMCA of Greater Seattle.

"The Seattle Seahawks have some of the greatest fans in football, and we are thrilled to make it easy for them to support the Spirit of 12 partners," said Jim Gaherity, President of Coinstar. "If every Seahawks fan attending a home game this season donates 12 cents, that would provide another $60,000 to support community services provided by the Spirit of 12 nonprofit organizations."

"We hope the "12s" will take advantage of this convenient opportunity to support local, community-based nonprofits that directly impact youth in our region," said Seahawks Vice President of Community Relations Mike Flood.

Each of these five non-profit partners has a designated timeframe for consumers to make donations to their favorite organization. Consumers can locate Coinstar kiosks accepting donations to the Spirit of 12 by visiting
