Q: I've sent an email to request a link to sign up to be a Champion for Clean Water, but I haven't received the Neon Raise email. What should I do?

A: This could be happening for a couple reasons. First, check your spam folder. The Neon Raise email will come from [email protected], so it may go to spam or junk. Second, make sure you spelled Jaimee's name correctly in your email asking to be made a Champion. Her email address is [email protected] (spelled Jaime, but with an extra e). If you keep trying and it's not working, try sending the email to [email protected]
