Press release submitted by QC United


There's no better time than now!
The message of the day... "UNITY".
Here in the Quad Cities, we are showing our children the meaning of CommUNITY! We hope you will join us in this effort.

The QC "Unity Year-Round" Campaign (an anti-bullying initiative) promotes a positive, accepting community through interactive art and music activities for students in our multi-city community. This will take place in April of 2013 in schools throughout the QC and the result will be a traveling art exhibit with a message of acceptance and respect.

You can support this anti-bullying message by adding your name and/or the name of your organization to the back of an adorable t-shirt! (100% of the funds raised will cover the art and music costs of the Unity Year-Round Campaign.)

The deadline for t-shirt sponsorships is January 26th, so don't delay! Area students will be selling these shirts beginning February 1st. Contact QC United at 563-349-1870.
