This year was our first time ever participating in Day of Action. For those who don’t know, this event occurs annually—on or around June 21—at United Ways around the world, and it was a huge undertaking for our small team. The concept for this event was a collaborative effort shared by Emily’s vision and Angela’s execution. The goal—make Birthday Kits and Basic Essentials (hygiene and snack) Kits to support vulnerable individuals and families. We started planning for our event in early January of 2023, and by March, we were enthusiastically pitching to anyone who would listen.
