EveryoneOn is a national campaign powered by Connect2Compete, a national nonprofit organization bringing together leaders from communities, the private sector, and leading foundations with a goal of helping all Americans get access to free digital literacy training. There are a huge list of partners involved including nonprofits like the Ad Council and United Way as well as many for-profit companies including Time Warner, Cox, Charter and more.

In the coming weeks we’re going to be enlisting digital savvy folks to help digital newbies get online, get free computer training and find out how they can improve their lives by getting connected to the Internet.

Happy Holidays from HelpGood

Today, June 21st 2012, is the United Way Day of Action, marking United Way’s 125th Anniversary.  Join volunteers from across the country in creating change to improve America’s education, income, and health.

In an effort to raise awareness, people are being encouraged to tweet today using the same hashtags #liveunited and #iamthechange. Highlight how you help your local community.  Here are some examples:

  • I give to the causes I care about. #iamthechange #LIVEUNITED
  • I advocate for the issues that matter to my community. #iamthechange #LIVEUNITED
  • I volunteer with @UnitedWay to make a difference in my community. #iamthechage #LIVEUNITED

United Way and HelpGood will be working together to promote United Way’s “LIVE UNITED” campaign. The campaign’s focus is to mobilize communities to give, advocate and volunteer to improve the building blocks of a good life and advancing the common good. Initially launched in 2008, the LIVE UNITED campaign inspires and encourages people to partner with United Way by becoming more involved in their own communities, either by volunteering, giving, or advocating for change.

HelpGood will develop an overarching strategy for the campaign to be implemented across United Way Worldwide. In addition, HelpGood will implement tactics in collaboration with the Ad Council and United Way to conduct outreach to bloggers, engage and grow United Way’s social networks across multiple platforms and to create a social media toolkit for ongoing implementation.
