Anyone can champion the cause. Whether you're speaking out to improve education, income and support for basic needs, reaching out to members of Congress, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. So go ahead and advocate in a LIVE UNITED world. Do it in public. Be visible. Be loud.
Here are some ways you can become an advocate for United Way:
- Tell your friends about your involvement with United Way and what we do. Tell them in person, forward our e-newsletter or bring them along to an event.
- Write a letter to the editor. United Way needs people who are passionate about education, income and basic needs to make some noise.
- Send a letter to your elected official.
- Wear the shirt. You'll be able to spark a conversation when you wear the LIVE UNITED shirt.
- Join a walk or run in memory or in honor of someone you know or participate for a specific cause.
- Become a Loaned Executive for United Way. The Loaned Executive Program helps United Way keep fundraising expenses down and provides a great learning and growing opportunity for individuals ready to make a difference. Loaned execs are mainly hired during campaign season and help the thousands of companies that run campaigns conduct a successful campaign.
