This past August, Mile High United Way hosted a brand new event called Altrooizem in collaboration with WeWork- Union Station. The event was created to provide newcomers with tools for inspiration and activation in local philanthropy. The goal was to introduce guests to community issues in a networking format and empower them to create positive change in the community through a Kindness Passport. The passport allows for self-kindness by rewarding our guest with local offers to restaurants and other fun places that make for a sweeter journey.
