Prosperity NOW: VITA Awareness Day is March 16. Share Your Story!

March 8, 2022

 

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Awareness Day is here once again! Join your friends at Prosperity Now on March 16 to celebrate all things VITA. This year, VITA is more important than ever to our communities. With expanding tax credits and refunds, more low- and moderate-income families need to access necessary refunds to pay bills, save for a rainy day and more. And now, Prosperity Now and our partners want to hear why VITA is important to YOU!

Over the next two weeks, we’re encouraging you to collect video stories from your VITA sites and share them on social media using #VITAAwarenessDay and tagging @ProsperityNow. All you need is a phone and a superstar! That could be a site coordinator, volunteer or even yourself. If video is not your thing, don’t worry! You can snap a photo of yourself and add your story to the caption of the post. Easy peasy!

The entry with the most likes by 12 AM ET on March 17th will win a $50 gift card.  

So, here’s how to enter:

  1. Post a video or photo of your VITA superstar (who is 18 years or older, please) answering the following prompts.
    • What does VITA mean to you?
    • Why do you choose VITA?
  2. Use #VITAAwarenessDay and tag us on social media @prosperitynowto make sure we capture your entry!
  3. … and that’s it!

We encourage you to get creative with your videos (or photos) – use as many props, volunteers or sound effects as you want.

We’re thrilled to hear more from the wonderful advocates that make VITA the amazing program it is! If you have any questions, please let us know!
