Raleigh, NC, April 22, 2019
An exciting new partnership between Easterseals UCP and Capitol Broadcasting (WRAL-TV) kicks off today. The campaign called “be the thread” is focused on educating the public about people living with disabilities & mental illness, the families who love them and the front line who supports them.
Easterseals UCP is part of the fabric of every community in which we serve – we are that invisible thread – serving behind the scenes supporting children, adults and families living with disabilities and mental health challenges. Through the “be the thread” campaign, we hope to inspire the public to connect, engage and give.
Beginning today, look and listen for public service announcements on WRAL-TV, FOX 50, Mix 101.5, 99.9 The Fan, Z107.5, and WRAL.com. Join us in spreading the word about improving the lives of people with disabilities and mental health challenges through social media.
