As the 125th year of the United Way movement draws to a close, we’re sending messages of thanks to the millions of people and organizations around the world who have joined with others to advance the common good.  United Way was built on the idea that we all win when children succeed in school, when families are stable and people have good health. 

Every day for the next seven days, we’re recognizing a different group of leaders—from companies and Community Partners, to public officials, organized labor, celebrities and others who have championed our cause.  And of course, we’re extending a special thanks to all who give, advocate and volunteer.  We call this THE BIG THANKS.

Everybody can be a part of the THE BIG THANKS.  It’s as easy as posting a message on Facebook or sending an email.  We invite you to join us using #BIGTHANKS, #125years, #LIVEUNITED and @UnitedWay.  Together we can send a message of thanks that echoes all around the world.
