We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. It’s a way for your family, your community, your company, or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
Why are we doing Giving Tuesday?
It is a way for H&V HQ to raise funds and awareness on a national level. It will be the only giving campaign that we ask you (personally), your board and your chapter to participate in. It will provide us with the funds to continue to support you!
How do I #UNselfie?
1. Take a “selfie” with a caption (or have it on a card in the picture) explaining how or why you and/or your friends are “giving” this year.
2. Always use the hashtags #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday and #HVGiving
3. Post it to Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter and share with friends!
TELL everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
SHARE your favorite #UNselfies on your H&V sites and personal sites.
ASK people to share their support on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram through status updates, posts, or other creative content. A few ideas include giving people a way to tell others about their donations on Facebook, or asking fans to change their profile pictures on Facebook and Instagram to your campaign image.
