Join Team NFL on The 21 This Friday

The countdown has begun! Get ready for an ACTION packed day and join the Google+ Hangouts on Air to see what your favorite United Way TEAM NFL players are up to in the community on United Way’s Day of Action — The 21!

Broadcasting LIVE from venues across the country through this modern day telethon of the digital age, UW TEAM NFL players will be checking in throughout the day in support of worldwide education.

Start your day off right and spend your breakfast with Buffalo Bills linebacker Arthur Moats at 8:00 am. With a heart perfectly in proportion to his size, learn how United Way took Moats full circle as he now represents the very organization that he interned for to earn his degree.

Pull down the lap bar and prepare for a bumpy ride as Chicago Bears Roberto Garza connects from Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois at his kick-off TEAM Garza recruitment event. Join his friends and family at 10:00 am and find out how he plans on drafting 3,000 volunteers this season.

Check in with Glover Quin of the Detroit Lions at 10:00 am as he flips the camera and interviews the President of Southwestern Mississippi Community College, where he spent his first years of undergrad. Discover why community college was the right fit for Quin and may be the right fit for you — straight from the Safety’s mouth.

Calling all spring breakers! Link up with Calais Campbell of the Arizona Cardinals at 6:00 pm and learn how he spent Spring Break giving back. Follow in his extra-large footsteps, join TEAM CALAIS, and check out United Way Alternative Spring Breaks.

Listen up and get comfy for story time with New Orleans Saints Roman Harper at 7:00 pm as he reads “Chocolate Me” by Taye Diggs and stresses the importance of embracing diversity and the personal differences that make each of us unique.

9:00 pm is party time! Josh Morgan of the Washington Redskins shows us how to throw a party WITH a purpose as he teams up with United Way and the United Negro College Fund at the Artisphere Arts & Cultural Center in Arlington, Virginia.

Stay tuned in and keep checking back with us for special appearances from Jabaal Sheard of the Cleveland Browns, Marcel Reece of the Oakland Raiders and Quinton Coples of the New York Jets.
