Show your local community support and help spread kindness!
Join Souris Valley United Way on Friday, November 8th to celebrate LIVE UNITED DAY! United Way is a community of donors, partners, advocates, and volunteers who together are able to take on problems such as hunger and homelessness. Together, we are able to make a difference in our community!
Don’t just wear the shirt… LIVE IT! Show our community how to LIVE UNITED by doing a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS for ONE other person in your workplace, neighborhood, school, family, group of friends, or community.
Friday, November 8th participate in #Rakminot and capture it! Take videos and pictures of you or someone you know doing good for another in our community or share your experience. Be sure to share it on social media with the hashtag #minotliveunited #RAKminot so we can see all the good that is being done around our community. When you complete a #rakminot leave the next person with this card: #RAKminot cards
