2013---Let's Make It Happen!!!
2013 has been a busy year for CWA and our work supporting EGPAF from coast to coast. In February, District Vice President Chris Shelton along with S/T Annie Hill and several District 1 Local leaders attended the Global Champions of a Mother's Fight Awards dinner in New York City (see pictures). In June, local activists from Southern California both volunteered and participated in the A Time for Heroes annual fund raising event (picture at right, see more pictures). It is wonderful to be able to give locals a closer look at the Foundations work, their successes and their challenges. We will be looking for more opportunities going forward.
We set a goal for an additional 3% of locals to participate, which would push us over t he 50% mark. We are well on our way. To date 36% of Locals have contributed a total of $182,926 or 45% of our total yearly quota of $404,740. Thanks to everyone that has contributed to date. I continue to be proud of the role that our Union has played in the wonderful work done by the Foundation.
Last year, we added a donate button on this web page and used it for the first time on World AIDS Day with mixed success. The request then was made from the International and I believe we could get much more participation when used by Local Unions with a Local message.
This is another way that you can either augment your current fundraising or begin fundraising. On the form we ask people to identify their local union so a report can be generated so you can see the results and we can give you credit towards your quota. We are excited about this new opportunity and want to work with you to develop customized information for your Local. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this new approach.
