Share Your Why: Christina Brunson
Christina Brunson’s “why” started 2 years ago, at the Leading a Life of Purpose event hosted by United Way of Greater Atlanta’s women’s leadership groups. At that event, Christina saw firsthand the passion, purpose and leadership of Dr. Johnetta B. Cole and other United Way women, including the Tocqueville member who had invited her. That example ignited Christina’s own drive to give back. Today she says, “Once you know more, you should do more.”
Since the Leading a Life of Purpose event 2 years ago, Christina has graduated from the United Way of Greater Atlanta Volunteer Involvement Program (VIP), a board training program, and has become a Women of Cole cabinet member.
