Dearest Show Me Campaign and Fellow Activists, Catalysts, and Advocates…
Thank you for your adamant support of me during my internship with ONE this summer!
Thank you for your enthusiasm and excitement for the successes we had with ONE in Austin this summer!
Thank you for your interest in my blog and my internship!
I am ever so appreciative of you!
SO NOW WHAT?
Well, although my internship with ONE this summer at an end- my work and efforts with ONE are not.
As promised, I wanted to give you a little more details on the upcoming event for ONE in Austin.
SAVING THE WORLD 101!
What the power of synergy can do!
I was able to get the support of 9 other organizations to help make this event a reality. So we have been collaborating together for the last several months to really make this event a success!
A big thank you to all the organizations collaborating with us for this event!
THE ONE CAMPAIGN
AUSTIN OXFAM ACTION CORPS
AIDS SERVICES OF AUSTIN
THE THIRST PROJECT
WOMEN OF VISION- WORLDVISION
So what are we going to do at this event?
We are going to train and raise up new advocates, catalysts and activists for the City of Austin and the world.
How exactly are we going to train these amazing advocates?
We are going to give them a quick session on Advocacy 101. Then we will have 9 breakout sessions for them to choose from. Everyone will go to 3 breakout sessions- each on a specific issue revolving around poverty AND being taught by a unique organization. Then, at the very end of this event, we will have an organization fair and networking party to give all attendees the opportunity to really engage with all the organizations, attendees, and organizers- AS WELL as learn about opportunities to volunteer or intern for an organization that they are really interested in!
We are all so thrilled and excited for this upcoming event- and if you happen to be in the Austin area- please feel welcome to come on out and invite your friends and family! You can simply sign up here: http://savingtheworld101.eventbrite.com/
SO MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO!
I am looking forward to continuing to contribute my time, effort and resources to the ONE Campaign and the fight to end extreme poverty.
It is my passion, my purpose and my path!
I am looking forward to continuing to learn more about solutions to fight poverty- and hope to one day be able to significantly contribute to the fight to end poverty.
AND ONE LAST THOUGHT!
Always remember that your voice matters and is powerful. Always remember that you can make a difference! Always remember that you have the power, ability and initiative to make a positive change in this world!
Hold on to your passion and “be the change you wish to see in the world” (Ghandi)!
Thank you again!
Ever so grateful,
