The Big “I" Young Agents are asking state associations, agents, companies to give back to the community the week of June 1-10 and to share their activity with national by posting on social media using #TCAgentsGive. While the GIVE movement is a weeklong, we want to see what you are doing in the community via the hashtag year-round. We are asking anyone, anywhere to give back—volunteer, host a fundraiser, be a collection site for a local charity. This movement is all about small things making a big difference.
