WE Movement Seeks Champions…

Hulk Hogan was the Champion of the World Wrestling Federation.  Andre Agassi was the Champion of Wimbledon.  Kelly Clarkson was the Champion of American Idol.  But what about everyday Champions that make a meaningful difference in the lives of their friends and neighbors?  It is their kindred spirit that offers hope to so many people. That is why the WE Movement is seeking WE Champions!
WE Champions are those enthusiastic individuals who are well—established in their communities and willing to volunteer their time to coordinate community resources. With the help of WE Partners, they give presentations to inform the community about the WE Movement, and they also actively recruit and enroll Providers—those with goods, products and services they wish to donate gratis. They also identify and enroll WE Recipients, those individuals, organizations and associations most in need of the donated items.

At its official launch press conference in Sacramento, California earlier this year, WE Founder Tom Loker “pinned” Oakland, CA WE Champion Marsha Martin for her service.  Marsha has demonstrated her commitment to her community.

But WE is still seeking well-connected community activists to become WE Champions—civic-minded volunteers whose purpose is to educate, inform and enlist the support of his or her respective community in the WE Movement.
At a time when the government cannot accommodate everyone’s needs due to the tough economy, the WE Movement’s vital service in coordinating community resources needs WE Champions to facilitate the match process generated through HELP4U – a web-based system that solves the problem of matching and connecting individuals who are in need of assistance as well as those re-entering the community from state correctional facilities with available program and resources that are available with a state/county/city. WE Champions are “always looking for a match!”  Can you or someone you know step up?
WE is immediately looking for Champions in Sacramento, Orange County, and Los Angeles. To volunteer, contact WE Movement coordinator Jordanna Perez for more information (510-587-2643;

Champions come in numerous styles!  It could be someone starting a toy drive in preparation for the upcoming Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza holidays, or offering tutoring for people with English as a second language (EAS), or even delivering warm blankets to the homeless during the cold winter months.  No effort is too small, or insignificant.  So, volunteer your time as a "
WE Champion" today!
