I’ve been a customer & blogger brigade ambassador for U.S. Cellular for many years. I wouldn’t write for them & share their stories if I wasn’t happy with their network & services or the programs they get behind. As we continue to strive for a brighter future for our children, I love that U.S. Cellular is all about the future good for our communities & continues to promote and sponsor great programs for not only our youth, but also for everyone.
Did you know that on Nov. 28th, in support of Giving Tuesday, U.S. Cellular announced the return of The Future of Good, a program that champions and invests in youth who make a positive impact in their communities? U.S. Cellular, the wireless carrier is celebrating these young humanitarians by amplifying the good they’ve done and pledging a combined total of $42,000 consisting of in-kind and monetary contributions to help each youth to continue building The Future of Good. Not that you always have to be recognized, but if we’re encouraging and recognizing our youth for standing out by doing good it can only make for a brighter future, don’t you agree?
As part of this Future of Good, 15 youths – representing 12 causes – were selected by U.S. Cellular following a nationwide search. Their stories are showcased on TheFutureOfGood.com, and four of the youths’ unique stories are featured in documentary-style videos. U.S. Cellular also brought those four youth and their families to New York City on November 30 where they engaged and shared ideas with local teens at Madison Square
Boys & Girls Club in the Bronx, joined by multi-platinum recording artist, actress and Boys & Girls Clubs supporter, Jordin Sparks. How cool is that?
Just one of the many stories, but we loved this fight to help cure cancer!
Tommy Hosmer (age 17) in Bangor, Maine – Team Mimi: When Tommy was
nine years old, he lost his grandmother to ovarian cancer. For the past six years
he has raised more than $41,000 by hosting an annual softball tournament, with
all funds going to help the Lafayette Family Cancer Center’s fight to cure cancer.
If you want to get more involved, we encourage you from now through Dec. 31, to nominate youth in your own communities who are making an impact by visiting TheFutureOfGood.com. The three winning young humanitarians will be announced on Jan. 19 and each will be rewarded
with $1,000 to put toward their cause. For more information, please visit TheFutureOfGood.com or follow the social conversation by using the hashtag #TheFutureOfGood.
