As you may already know, the USA Network has been running the Characters Unite campaign. It’s a multi-platform movement committed to combating intolerance, prejudice, discrimination and hate, and to promoting greater acceptance, understanding and mutual respect.
They see it this way: “When people talk about the USA, they often think of cities and suburbs. Red states and blue states. Black, white, yellow, brown, and whatever other colors apply. But at USA Network, all we see are characters. Millions of smart, funny, quirky, heroic, shy, glamorous, fierce, stubborn characters, each one with a unique background and perspective.”
They’re asking folks to pledge their support for these ideal. For each person that does, they’ll donate $1 to its nonprofit partners. They include the American Federation of Teachers, GLAAD, Human Rights Campaign, Southern Poverty Law Center, National Congress of American Indians, and many others.
To further promote this movement, USA is giving away five “Characters Unite” T-shirts to our readers. To enter, you need to merely post a comment below.You can enter once per day.
