We are looking for social, fun, fans of SOTX to help us promote Special Olympics Texas - Central Texas area for a 24-hour giving campaign called Amplify Austin. For 24 hours, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on March 4 and ending at 7:00 p.m. on March 5, the Austin community will come together to celebrate giving in our city and we want everyone to know just how important Special Olympics Texas is to you and our community.

Don’t worry… no need to pull an all-nighter or even spend all day volunteering. You can get involved from the comfort of your couch or that sweet new ergonomically correct office chair. All you have to do is share your passion for Special Olympics Texas with others. …And we’ve made it even easier for you with a Brand Ambassador Tool Kit. In your tool kit, you will find:

  • Special Olympics Texas and Amplify Austin Fact Sheet
