For each month of 2014,  I am creating unique first-person stories to air on local radio stations ( Coast 93.1, 560 WGAN, WCLZ 98.9, WBAE-AM and WZAN-AM), serve-up on social media and integrate into traditional communication pieces.

Each interview lasts about 25 minutes and then the fun begins — I get to slice-and-dice my way to under 60 seconds.

“Supporting United Way is critical.”
“I want to create change on a large scale.”
“Everyone has something to offer that can make a meaningful difference.”
“I’ve been doing this work with United Way for a long time. It just gets better.”
“We’ve made life safer for women and children.”
“We really try to make the donors’ money go as far as it can.”
“It all started here in Greater Portland with United Way.”
“The most valuable asset you have
is your time.”

It’s about picking up the phone — you’re going to get hooked.
