This GivingTuesday, please help AthletesCAN spread the word about the importance of the Athlete Voice and Athlete Governance to help us raise awareness of our work, and funds to help support the leadership education programs we have been delivering for over three decades.
In a time where athlete governance, the athlete voice, and athlete representation are more important than ever, AthletesCAN stands at the forefront of ensuring that athletes are listened to, respected, and have a seat at the table where decisions that affect them are made.
How can you help?
1. Share our content – We have prepared a package of ready-to-share graphics and posts that you can share with your followers! Pick one (or more) that resonates with you and post using the hashtags #AthleteVoice and #GivingTuesdayCa – As Canada’s national team athletes and alumni, your followers care about what you have to say, and telling them that you care about AthletesCAN will make them care about AthletesCAN!
2. Share your own content – Feeling creative? Great! Create and share original content about how AthletesCAN has made a difference in your life, then tag @AthletesCAN and use the hashtag #AthleteVoice when you post. We’ll be sure to reshare and amplify your stories!
3. Share a testimonial – If you’re willing to, share a personal story with us about how AthletesCAN helped you in a time of need, helped you grow as a leader, or helped you become the athlete and individual you are today. These stories help us explain to other athletes why they should join AthletesCAN, and explain to donors and partners the value of becoming part of the AthletesCAN family. For more details or to share your story, contact Jacob Morris, Coordinator, Digital Media and Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Make a donation – The most direct way to help support AthletesCAN’s work is a donation. When you give to AthletesCAN, 100 percent of your donation helps support Team Canada athletes.
