CA Council Community Action Event- October 15, 2016

Greetings California Council Members!

You may or may not know that one of the goals of the Public Relations team for the California Council is a group event four times in the current 2016-2017 term.  We want to get a very positive awareness of IAIP, the CA Council, the local associations and the Members at Large to the entire state of California.  By doing these group events that will focus around community action and community needs all on the same day and using our group "voice".

For our very first "group" event we will be doing a blood drive. The date will be October 15, 2016, which also is during Breast Cancer Awareness month. 

Each member is encouraged to go to your local blood bank on October 15th and donate blood. Once donated, please take a selfie with your "I gave Blood" sticker and use the hashtag of #iaipgiveslife on social media.  Wearing Pink to support Breast Cancer that day is encouraged as well.  If you are unable to give blood due to health reasons, you are encouraged to get a family member or friend to do it on your behalf and go with them- show your support as they are for you.

If you want to pass this email on to other States, Councils or Regions for them to also join the event that day- please feel free to do so.

If you have any questions about the group event, please contact either myself or my Public Relations Liaison Sherry White.
