Serving Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties

Picture Yourself on the Cover of Bloom Magazine!

The Bloom Magazine Front Page Challenge has ended. View the winners here.


Bloom Magazine and United Way are joining forces to generate awareness of our community's needs and to raise funds for United Way and its member agencies.

Enter your business or organization in the Front Page Challenge, raise the most money (between June 10 and October 22), and see you, your boss, or co-worker on the cover of Bloom's December 2012/January 2013 issue.

Small businesses (10 and under employees) will compete against other small businesses, medium (11-50 employees) will compete against medium, and large businesses (51 or more employees) will compete against other large businesses.

Three representatives - one from each of the three winning entities - will grace Bloom's cover. Inside, there will be a feature story with pictures about each of the three winning companies or organizations.

Participating businesses can raise funds for any specific agency, multiple agencies, United Way, or for one of United Way's three priority areas: education, earnings, and essentials.

1) Create a personalized fundraising page for your business (see links below)
2) Rally your employees, coworkers, friends, customers, and fans to donate to your page so your business can be featured on the cover of Bloom Magazine!
3) Repeat step #2

If you have questions, please contact Lynae Sowinski (Bloom Magazine) at (812) 323-8959, ext. 0 or United Way at (812) 334-8370.
