Start your Activism @ Home with DoMore24

DoMore24 2017 kicks off this April, and our community is more energized than ever to address issues at home. The theme “Start Your Activism @ Home” is focused on reminding all of us that resilience starts locally and to shine a spotlight on the need for supporting our hometown nonprofits making a difference.  The DMV’s largest 24-hour online fundraiser starts with you. By standing United and embracing activism as the spark for change, DoMore24 will empower us all to step up, lend a helping hand, and contribute to our community organizations on June 8th.

With potential budget cuts looming, standing up for the great nonprofits in our community is more important than ever. It is no longer enough to be passive in the face of our neighbor’s needs; we must embrace an active role in supporting the front-line organizations creating the most change. As the fighters for our region’s education, health, and financial stability, United Way of the National Capital Area is devoted to the value of this activism.

Want to find out how you can join the fight? Interested in getting your organization in the conversation? Go to www.domore24.org and learn how you can become a part of the solution.
