Being on Team Swift (then Programming board) for three years is some of my fondest memories of Swift. I met some of my best friends, I connected with people who love Swift just as much as me, and I walked away with some skills to help me in college, the work force, and my adult life.
Starting two years ago, the main project of Team Swift became Arizona Gives Day (AZ Gives Day), a huge statewide fundraising event that enables nonprofits of all sizes to fundraise in a competitive manner with the chance to win bonus prizes. As a member of Team Swift, we competed against each other, against the Swift Board of Directors, and against all the nonprofits in dollar amounts and in number of donors.
Now, as college students sprinkled across the country, our involvement with Swift and AZ Gives Day shouldn’t end.
We can continue to set up AZ Gives Day pages and fundraise with a new outlook of what Swift does for the Arizona community, our home community.
We can continue to compete with each other and with other Team Swift cohorts by joining together and setting team goals.
We can teach our new communities what Swift is and get our new friends involved by sharing posts or becoming a donor.
Stay involved. Stay connected.
Continue to support Swift’s Arizona Gives Day campaign!
