Without doubt, the big news this month is the national recognition our organization has received by winning the public vote for the National Make a Difference Day All-Star Award. Once again, our ability to mobilize our volunteer members nationwide has driven our success, not only through our second annual national book drive, but also through driving our personal networks to vote for us online - so thank you to all of you who voted, encouraged your friends and family to vote, and vote often - this is your award!
I had the privilege of representing the organization at the Make a Difference Day Awards luncheon in Washington, D.C.(USA Weekend article and video HERE). It was truly an honor and a proud moment for me to receive our award in such prestigious company. This kind of public recognition will help generate further national awareness of our organization, which in turn will lead to stronger national partnerships, increased national sponsorships and funding opportunities. Thanks again, everyone!
Executive DirectorGeoff@assistanceleague.org Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
As you have probably heard by now, Assistance League won the Make A Difference Day All-Star Award. Exciting, but more importantly, this was a testament to what can happen when we put social media to work. The call to get out the vote went out via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, chapter websites and the good old fashioned “word of mouth.” Friends, family, grandkids, students and entire workplaces all conspired to put us over the top and WIN!
Thank-you to all of you, our chapter members, who worked overtime to make sure that everyone voted and not just once, but every day. It is inspirational to see what can happen when we all share a common goal and believe that goal can be reached!
