Unleash your local love

By 2025, we want to inspire 1 million people to engage in
acts of local love in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.

Show us you’re one in that million.

Show us you’re one in a million.

Pledge your commitment to being one in a million — and help inspire others to join the movement too.

What are acts of local love?

An act of local love can take many forms. It might be as simple as saying hello to someone on the street, or as exciting as building a new community garden. At United Way, we’re committed to channeling local love in all we do… to igniting the desire in everyone to improve this community we call home.

Whether that means helping a vulnerable child, working with isolated seniors or anything in between, it’s all about building connections and delivering support to the people and communities who need them. And we want to work with everybody to do that. Through United Way, you can mobilize people to address a local issue, collaborate with a network of partners to solve a problem, or give financially to support community programs. Or, you can take a personal challenge to add a bit more local love to your life and your community. It’s all local love!

Local love can be contagious

Research shows that local love can be contagious. For every person that takes action to make their community better, there is a domino effect. One person’s generosity spreads to 3 people, and then to the 9 more after that. With just one act of local love, 12 people can be inspired and engaged to pay it forward. There’s no end to the ripple effects that follow!

So show us you’re one in a million and help inspire others to join the movement. Take the pledge today!
