Choose to Live United TODAY to be entered in prize drawing

By Jan Middendorf

Faculty and staff who turn in their K-State United Way contribution TODAY, will be entered in the early bird weekly prize drawing, which runs through the end of the campaign Dec. 9. Visit www.k-state.edu/unitedway to see prize drawing incentives.

More than 234 participants have already donated $38,376 to make a difference in our community. If we all give a little, we can accomplish a lot. There are so many reasons to Live United. On your donation form, you can contribute to a particular key area: education, income and health.

If you have not received your K-State United Way contribution materials, visit www.k-state.edu/unitedway.

K-State Student United Way Campaign: Jail and Bail
All are welcome to participate in the Jail and Bail event taking place for the student campaign to raise funds for the United Way. For varying fees, you can issue a warrant to arrest a student, faculty member or celebrity by Tuesday, Nov. 15. The charged individual can post bail before being incarcerated at the K-State Student Union Wednesday, Nov. 16, or he or she can use the time in jail to call family and friends to post bail. Get all the details for this creative way to raise money at http://conta.cc/rAJwIa.
