Do Good Week

UnitedHealthcare’s “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer initiative encouraged the public to participate in the second annual Do Good Week, dedicated to promoting all things good. The week-long social media and community service campaign ran from Nov. 12 - 18, 2017. In its inaugural year, more than 6.5 million people were reached with the hashtag #DoGoodWeek. The goal of the campaign was to change the conversation, for just one week, to something positive. This year we went a step further and are encouraged participants to take action to inspire a movement. During Do Good Week, the public was encouraged to commit to doing something good, and then use social media and the hashtag #DoGoodWeek to share their story. This was an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate kindness and positive news across the country, including volunteerism, random acts of kindness, paying it forward and much more. For more information about Do Good Week, go to DoGoodWeek.org or follow @DoGoodLiveWell on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
