Why are you participating in #MCCMatters? Use this tool kit to spread the word!

As Secretary Wobensmith said in the MCC video, the #1 reason people give is because they are asked. Likewise, the #1 reason people don’t give is because they are not asked. We are working hard to promote the MCC, but it’s not enough. The most powerful Campaign messenger is YOU. We need your help!

Please invite your friends and colleagues to participate in the MCC. To get started, click here to download our Outreach Tool Kit with turnkey content and graphics you can copy and paste into your email, social media, blog, newsletter, etc. On social media, use the Campaign hashtag #MCCmatters so we can “like” and share your posts. On behalf of the nearly 900 pre-vetted participating charities on the front lines every day helping those who need it most, thank you! No amount is too small; every contribution helps.
