WHAT IS THE GIVE MOVEMENT?
The Big “I" South Carolina Young Agents are launching their first annual project called the GIVE MOVEMENT in support of Trusted Choice community partner, Make-A-Wish of South Carolina. The GIVE MOVEMENT was inspired by our very own SC Young Agents but encourages all SC Independent agents, affiliates, and partners (customers, neighbors and friends!) across the state to come together for one week (June 1-8, 2020) for something much bigger than business: to give back to an incredibly inspirational and worthy cause. This project will be tracked by the Big “I" Nationally and we hope to make a huge impact here in South Carolina.
NOW MORE THAN EVER IS WHEN WE SHOULD
COME TOGETHER FOR GOOD!
Your donation will have a life-changing impact for local children and families within our community and state. Each contribution goes directly to Make-A-Wish of SC and no matter how large or small, you are making a HUGE difference by joining together with your industry to make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for helping us launch a successful first annual community project. There are currently close to 350 children waiting to have wishes granted in SC, and the average cost of a single wish is $7,500.
We have ONE WEEK, June 1-8, to reach 500 DONATIONS (min. $5 per person) in order to UNLOCK $5,500 in additional contributions from our Top Agency Givers. Please save the date and help us meet this goal! We hope to raise enough to grant any where from 2-5 childrens wishes in SC.
On average, MAW of SC grants more than 200 wishes per year for children with critical illnesses, but, as with all of us, COVID-19 has had a direct impact on those efforts. The IIABSC Give Movement was scheduled before COVID-19 in support of Trusted Choice community partner MAW, and now more than ever we are committed to granting as many wishes as possible. Our Independent Agents & Partners have huge hearts and we see you making a difference every day in the lives of others, now it's our time to make an impact together as an industry within our state. As we all navigate these uncertain times, one thing remains certain: although we may be apart, we will find ways of overcoming, TOGETHER! By making a small donation, you will be a part of a HUGE impact.
