During the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype and become fixated on shopping and spending. #GivingTuesday is meant to counteract those rampant indulgences by encouraging all of us to donate to worthy nonprofit causes.
What is an #UNselfie?
An #UNselfie is a picture of you showing how you support worthy causes during the holidays or all year round. An #UNselfie could explain why you support a particular cause, highlight your #GivingTuesday plans or even reveal a random act of kindness that you took part in this year.
Little by little, your #GivingTuesday actions and #UNselfies can help to perpetuate a massive movement that encourages all of us to give just a little bit more during the holiday season.
You can also use your #UNselfie to highlight a HelpHOPELive Campaign that you support in order to gain traction for #GivingTuesday on December 1, when there are no credit card fees on all donations to HelpHOPELive Campaigns.
What does an #UNselfie look like?
Here are a few examples from our staff. Find additional #UNselfies on our Facebook page.
How can I join the movement?
You can join the #UNselfie movement in three easy steps:
- Download and print the #UNselfie template
- Write down an act of kindness, a charitable cause or a selfless wish for the holidays
- Share on social media with the tags #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday. Add #HelpHOPELive and #GiveHOPE if your #UNselfie involves a HelpHOPELive Campaign!
