#MultiplyChange Campaign: Joseph Makoba's Story (Uganda)

#MultiplyChange with us today!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Today is #GivingTuesday. We think this is a great opportunity to reflect on how, collectively and individually, we can continue to best make a positive impact in our world and to take steps toward realizing this impact. Join us!

3 things you can do today to celebrate #GivingTuesday: 
  1. WATCH: the videos below for motivation & inspiration!
  2. READ: about what other YP-CDN members are doing in our new Baltimore Chapter & globally.
  3. ACT: Support our #MultiplyChange campaign with proceeds going to our NextGen leaders program to train and support impactful projects by NCD changemakers, like Joseph. There are 3 ways to act today....

    DONATE to help us reach our #GivingTuesday goal: Buy us a drink! We are aiming for $5000 raised today, but we can't do it without you. Do you buy a coffee on your way to work or class? Today, help us reach our goal by matching the price of your coffee or tea today with a donation to #MultiplyChange

    BE#MultiplyChange Amabassador now: Create your own page to raise funds for #MultiplyChange. Our toolkit tells you how you can reach your own athletic goals or organize a fun dinner party with friends, while giving back to the YP-CDN community through your own fundraising goal!

    SHARE a #UNselfie photo to help promote the campaign. Take a selfie, but keep the spotlight on NCDs by sharing why you are participating in this year's #MultiplyChange campaign. Print out one of these posters or just write your reason on a piece of paper, and then share it via social media. Be sure to tag @ncdaction so we can like, share, and retweet. Here's an example from our social media coordinator, Casey. 
Warm and thankful wishes,
The YP-CDN Executive Team
