Let’s have fun

Next Monday, Nov. 29 – Friday, Dec. 3, members and staff will be working together to raise much needed funds for 2022, renew current CCI Action members, and ask new people to join.

At CCI Action we do the work, we fund the work and — we have fun doing it. In that spirit, we invite you to join us for short 15-minute, fun, online events. Read more and RSVP below!

Monday, Nov. 29 @ 6 pm

Seeing people’s pets wander onto the screen has been a highlight of the recent Zoom times, are we right? We’re doing a quick 15-minute meet up to see our pets. Come prepared to introduce yourself and your furry friend(s), to grin at the screen, and help kick-off our campaign in a fun way.

Can’t make it? We still want to see your friends anyway! Email a picture to cciaction @ cciaction.org

Tuesday, Nov. 30 @ 2 pm

Our friends at May First Movement Technology are testing their privacy-focused web conferencing system called Jitsi Meet (think non-corporate controlled Zoom), and are looking for at least one hundred brave souls to test the capacity. If you have 15 minutes to spare and want to see the world’s shortest and most dangerous online puppet show courtesy of Jason Hicks from the Boxcutter Collective, please register to come.

Tuesday, Nov. 30 @ 6 pm

Research shows that singing has many health benefits including being a stress reliever and mood improver. Designed for all singing levels, CCI Action member Kelly Gourley will teach us a few simple songs and lead us in a sing-along. Because synchronizing our voices on Zoom is likely a losing battle, participants will largely be on mute (see, good for all singing abilities!). We’ll email lyrics with the Zoom log-in info the day of.

Friday, Dec. 3 @ 10 am

When we polled CCI Action board members which type of online event they’d like, it was no surprise that everyone just wanted a time talk to each other! CCI Action Board President Cherie Mortice will welcome folks in and then we’ll send guests into Zoom chat rooms of 3-4 folks. Bring your own coffee or tea, your favorite mug (that’s your CCI mug, right?!) and help us close our yearend campaign with some connection and community.

** for extra fun and joy **

We’ll do prize

We’ll do prize drawings for CCI Action swag – including our new zip-up hoodies – at each of the events (except the puppet show). Must be present to win.

Want to guarantee you get a hoodie? Join us for a phone bank! We’re on the phones 11/30, 12/1 & 12/2. Contact mike@iowacci.org or molly@iowacci.org to sign up!
