We are SUPER EXCITED to partner with our friends at Kulshan Brewing for the third annual Holiday Maker's Market at K2!
Shop over 30 local artists and vendors! Cheers to doing good in Whatcom County!
You can feel merry and bright, knowing that a portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit United Way of Whatcom County, bringing help and hope to those who need it most.
Of course, we will be there with bells on... and some LIVE UNITED swag. Come say hello and raise a glass to Living United. $1 from every pint will support local individuals and families who are struggling financially in our community.
This year, we're excited to announce our first-ever 21-Day Equity Challenge!
In presenting this challenge, we follow in the footsteps of other United Ways and organizations in creating space to learn more about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) with the hope of gaining a deeper understanding of how past and present injustices impact people's ability to find stability and flourish. With financial stability at the core of what we do, we believe this information is critical to helping those who are struggling in our community thrive. As we embark on this journey, we invite you to join us as we explore these issues and look to a more equitable future.
How it works:
Beginning June 1, 2023, we'll be sending out one email daily for 21 days. These emails will cover a variety of issues and will include a small library of resources to dive deeper into each topic. This challenge is completely self-paced; you choose which days to engage with and at what level you want to learn.
We aren't the experts, but we know that all these issues directly and indirectly affect a person's ability to build a healthy and stable life. By presenting this information, we acknowledge that struggle isn’t evenly distributed and that certain communities, groups, and individuals are more prone to adversity for reasons far outside their control.
21-Day Equity Challenge Schedule
Our 21-Day Equity Challenge has ended. Thank you to everyone who participated! Below you can find links to every day of the equity challenge, including the kickoff and wrap up days. Emails include links to articles, videos, podcasts, and other resources to learn more about that day's topic.
