Thanks for sharing. I hadn't seen this yet, and it's really special.

I'm absolutely positive that, were he not a heart transplant recipient - Oscar would be right in those trucks slinging cases of water and pushing wheelbarrows of debris. He seems to be that kind of "roll up your sleeves and get it done" kind of guy.

Thankful to have him at the helm; I spend enough time in my life in/on/with United property that it matters to me.

I thought it was a heartwarming and inspiring video.

I understand being cynical, but the CEO being recorded really does make a difference. Oscar is a good man who employees love. What's good for employeees is good for all us here.

Never mind we forget the actual topic of the video - United emolpoyees actually are coming together, across sUA/sACO lines, to help those that are in the "United family".

This video definitely raises the bar when it comes to corporate responses to natural disasters. It shows a great deal of compassion that is genuine and humane.

It will be interesting to compare this with the responses from American and Delta after Hurricane Irma blows over. I have a feeling that there will be equal or greater destruction in parts of the Southeast where AA and DL have major operations.

United We Care is 100% based on employee contributions. Oscar personally matched employee contributions up to $1 Million- other officers made large contributions as well.

Think about your words and their impact on others' lives.
