LIVE UNITED – United Way of Lancaster County Campaign Video 2013


♪ To me, “United”
means a sense of cohesiveness… Coming together and creating
something that will
benefit everyone… The United States
of America? Taking care of the planet. United means everyone coming
together, no matter what race,
man or woman sharing common bonds and hoping for the same outcome. I think it means, like,
group teamwork… Combined together,
assembled… Solid. Strength. The benefits of working together is you can get a heck of a
lot more accomplished. And feel a lot better
doing it. It’s fun! You get more done. Things get done better… Everybody wins.
It’s a WIN-WIN opportunity. It’s easier.
It’s more efficient.
It’s faster… YES!
And you can work
together with people. I believe a strong community
starts with the youth. The value of education
is very important. Education is what opens doors
for a lot of people. Having financial stability
is important, because it empowers an
individual to reach the next step
within their lives. Be it career, education,
knowledge or otherwise. Without your health,
you can’t do anything else… If you’re not healthy, and
you’re not able to get out And LIVE UNITED… You can’t contribute, you can’t
have financial stability… But, health is extremely
important… I mean, it’s…
Longevity. That’s the goal! ♪ I grew up with a
single parent family… Hey, you grow up in the projects
you think that’s life.
That’s the world. Until you get exposed to
the outside… Because of United Way,
because of the Community Chest, It provided a launch-pad
to go do something else.
See something else. Make your world
a little broader. Returning to school is something
I always wanted to do… I just didn’t think that it
could be possible. And it’s…
Things ARE possible. United Way has helped me
reach my goal… In being a single mom,
and owning a home. I’m very thankful for that. A community is the sum
of what each person puts in. If nobody in the community
participates… It wouldn’t be reasonable
to expect a whole lot. But when everybody pitches in,
and everybody does their part, Things get phenomenally better,
it’s amazing what you can
accomplish. It’s not just like, “Oh, if I
help them, I’ll get something
back”… It’s more like “If I help them,
I’m making my whole surrounding
a lot better”. If you want to get involved,
if you want to see
a better community… If you BELIEVE in the community. Then you should find a way,
to contribute to the community.
And to United Way. You contribute, and other
people see you do that… And you bring THEM into it,
and it becomes a chain reaction. And everybody’s working
to help the community. If you have a row of dominos
around you, and you push one… That’s gonna PUSH, PUSH, PUSH,
PUSH… And eventually it’s just gonna
come back and hit you, so… You can’t back off and say
“Hey, what we have is great!” No, what we have IS great,
but we can make it better. We can make it better by
LIVING UNITED. I GIVE. I ADVOCATE. I VOLUNTEER. I LIVE UNITED. I LIVE UNITED. I LIVE UNITED. We LIVE UNITED. Can you say
“I LIVE UNITED”?(babbling)I LIVE UNITED. I LIVE UNITED. I LIVE UNITED. I LIVE UNITED. ♪
