Tell Us About Your #OneCaringAdult

Tell Us About Your #OneCaringAdult
Hello, friends! I have a request to make of you. ATN is getting ready to launch our 2019 Giving Tuesday campaign titled #OneCaringAdult! Will you help us please? What we are asking:
  • Download and print one of the attached sheets, either I am #OneCaringAdult or My #OneCaringAdult is my…. Write anything you would like that works with #OneCaringAdult!  For the My sheet you can tell us who made a difference in your life, such as  “Guitar teacher” or “Favorite auntie!”  For the “I am” sheet you could write your current role like “Mom” or “Teacher” or an attribute that makes you a caring adult like  “Who listens!” or “Never gives up.”
  • Have someone take a picture of you holding the sign (you can show your face or your eyes, or just your hands if you would like, be creative!) and email me the picture at . If you would like to include a short paragraph to go with your picture telling about your one caring adult, we’d love to share that too!  Please know that this will be shared on social media and I won’t be using names with the pictures or stories.
  • Like, share, and comment on all of the posts we make! Be supportive to all of ATN’s members because we are all in this together!
  • If you would like to be more involved with this project we are also looking for video submissions to be used on social media, contact me for more information.
Deadline…please have them to me by Tuesday, November 26. Jules Wooten – Development Coordinator
