Hi Writing Minors,
I need your help. United Way has partnered with the NFL for over 35 years. I was one of 32 college students, selected nationwide for United Way’s Team NFL Player Partnership. This is an ongoing initiative to lower the high school dropout rate nationwide. My goal is to recruit 1,000 pledges for Chris Canty, Super Bowl XLVI winner, and defensive tackle for the New York Giants by December 1.
Together, Chris Canty and I are trying to recruit 1,000 volunteer readers, tutors and mentors, in an attempt to help United Way achieve their goal of reducing the number of high school dropouts in half by 2018. The number of dropouts nationwide is staggering, and we can each do something to help.
As I said, Team Canty set a goal to recruit 1,000 pledges by THIS December. Already, Chris and I have recruited 426 people to join our team. We need your help and support – please take the pledge below to join our team: http://www.unitedway.org/team-nfl/players/chris-canty/. PLEASE SIGN – we need each and every one of your signatures to reach our goal!
The difference between a graduate and a dropout could be you – Chris Canty and I CAN’T do this without you!
