At United Way, we believe that what unites us is ultimately fare more powerful than what divides us. Our annual campaign brings people from all walks of life in a common purpose. Together, we are improving lives and building community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action. Together, we are bringing lasting, positive change to all parts of our city and build a stronger community for all. By taking part in United Way Oakville’s annual campaign you are helping us support the social fabric that ties our community together.
United Way Oakville’s Workplace Campaign Toolkit has what you need to run a successful United Way campaign.
Share your workplace’s commitment to the city with our online community by making United Way Oakville’s social media profiles work for you. We have various options—such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube—that you can take advantage of during your workplace campaign. We encourage you to boost recognition of your organization’s fundraising efforts as you work toward reaching your goal.
Here’s a description of each of our social media profiles and how to utilize them during your campaign:
To get started, like our Facebook page, United Way Oakville, and encourage all your coworkers to do the same. Here, you’ll find daily updates on what is happening with our agencies, news from our community, highlights from other workplace campaigns, and more. Share your goals, progress and successes with us by posting short messages or photos and video. Facebook is a great way not only to acknowledge the efforts of your coworkers but also to see what other organizations are doing to support the cause, too.
By following our Twitter profile, @uwoakville, you and your coworkers can share your fundraising accomplishments, information about your workplace events, your goal and achievement, and any other fun items about how you’re supporting the cause. When you mention us, we’ll retweet your message to our online community, helping spread the word about your great efforts. Plus, you’ll get up-to-the-minute news about what United Way Oakville is doing too.
United Way Oakville’s YouTube Channel is a great resource for videos that highlight the work we’re doing in our community. You can choose to ‘Like’ or save a video to your own YouTube account by making it a ‘Favourite’. Plus, you can share these inspirational videos with your coworkers in your email communication or on your organization’s intranet by simply cutting and pasting the individual link, or embedding the video. You can embed a video by clicking on the ‘Share’ button at the bottom of the video, then click on ‘Embed’ (the code will appear in a field below). From here, you can also grab the link, share it via Facebook or Twitter, or email it directly from YouTube.
