Giving Back to Those Who Give Back

Hey everyone,

I wanted to send an update on my work with United Way TEAM NFL.  For those of you who do not know what it is, United Way TEAM NFL is a core group of college-educated, civic-minded NFL players from teams across the country committed to helping United Way in its effort to recruit a million volunteer readers, tutors and mentors.  Our mission is to cut the high school dropout rate in half by 2018 and we need your help to do accomplish our goal.  So far I have recruited 536 fans to join my team to help volunteer as readers, tutors, and mentors.  It’s a great start, but we need a lot more help.

I teamed up with the Cardinals to give fans who join my team, TEAM CALAIS, an awesome opportunity to win a number of unique prizes and experiences based on the number of volunteers who join the team.  For every milestone reached, one lucky TEAM CALAIS volunteer will be chosen to receive for the prize.  The milestones for these prizes are:

  • 1,000 volunteers—autographed Calais Campbell jersey
  • 1,500 volunteers—lunch with Calais and a few of his teammates at the Arizona Cardinals facility
  • 2,000 volunteers—A visit from Calais to your work or child’s school from Calais
  • 2,500 volunteers—Volunteer alongside Calais at a United Way event
  • 3,000 volunteers— A day with Calais at your home to put him to work, walking the dogs, watching your kids, manning the barbeque
  • 4,000 volunteers—A VIP experience at an Arizona Cardinals home game including tickets for four and a meet-and-greet with Calais following the game.

 

Fans who join my team will have the chance to win more than once, so it’s important to sign up right away.  These are some awesome prizes and experiences that I can’t wait to be a part of and for my fans to experience. 

So please take the pledge and join TEAM CALAIS.  It is for a great cause and can really make an impact on many young lives.  Not only are you making your community a better place, but you also have the opportunity to win awesome prizes and once in a lifetime experiences.  It’s a win-win situation for everyone and I could not be more excited to be a part of it.  Take the pledge and enter to win these prizes at www.unitedway.org/teamcalais
