Happy #901Day!

learn more about one of our favorite days of the year

Posted by OBS Team on September 1st, 2017

All of our work focuses on Sudan, but we're blessed to be headquartered in one the best cities in the world: Memphis, TN. That's why #901Day is one of our favorite days of the year!

Don't believe us? Watch the short video above from our friends at Choose 901 to see why. 

Today is #901Day. If you're one of our supporters outside of Memphis, you're probably wondering what today is all about. Simply put, it's a day to celebrate everything about our city! 901 is the area code for Memphis and 901 Day is observed on September 1st (9/01). You get the point. Our city is clever that way, so we created an unofficial holiday for ourselves.

Celebrations begin today and go through next weekend. Two events you won't want to miss are Exposure by New Memphis tonight at Autozone Park and 901 Day Celebration at Railgarten (rescheduled for next weekend). 

Happy 901 Day to all of our Memphis supporters!

The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is working out of Memphis to accelerate their ability to generate lasting change through storytelling, education, advocacy, and emergency relief programs. Here are a few different ways you can join us:

1. Move To Memphis. If you don't live here already, you should work on changing that. Lots of amazing things magically happen when you move to Memphis and you'll get to be at the hub of our international movement to empower our friends in Sudan as well. It's easy to make new friends and there's lots of reasons to make the move. LEARN MORE »

2. Make A Gift. Memphis is also one of the most generous and caring cities around. We would know. Out of the 811 people who gave to our work last year, over 200 of our amazing supporters were right here in Memphis. GIVE TODAY » 

3. Follow Us Online For Updates. You can follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and Snapchat and sign up for email updates. You can get the most recent updates from our work and events there. We have events in Memphis throughout the year and would love to see you at one! SEE UPCOMING EVENTS »
