The holidays are around the corner and typically this is a time where we reflect on what we’re most thankful for, how fortunate we have been, and how we can help others. Let this November be no exception. You should continue to reflect on all the good you have accomplished and how others may have helped you along your journey; as you do think “what can I do to help someone else”?

Join Give More HUGS this holiday season to #giveHUGSgiveTHANKS! The purpose of this holiday challenge is to inspire Give More HUGS supporters to help spread HUGS & THANKS, share the work we do, increase volunteers, sell 100 limited time Give HUGS Give THANKS t-shirts, and engage 50 new donors or more by #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016. Help us make this a successful campaign by sharing this news. Will you be able to support us during this season of giving?

Give HUGS and Give THANKS to those you are thankful for and to those who have helped you overcome adversity. It’s easy to participate!  All you have to do is be prepared to spread joy, happiness and cheer as the holiday season begins by telling people on social media your #givingstory. What is a Giving Story?? It’s the personal story of why you support Give More HUGS and why education is important to you! While you participate, encourage your friends and family to make a donation to Give More HUGS and help us impact the lives of underprivileged students across the United States and Caribbean with our programs.

What do I need to do?

  1. Create a video (have fun, be silly, be thankful). Explain in a 1-2 minute video why you support GMH and tell the world why you value education for all~ Be sure to share via social media using the hashtags #mygivingstory #givingtuesday and #giveHUGSgiveTHANKS.
  2. Feeling camera shy? Create a photo collage of you doing great things in your community and give us your story through pictures! Tell us about your education journey and why you want to help others! You guessed it, don’t forget to include the 3 hashtags so we can see you.
  3. Tag your friends and family, ask them to join in you the challenge!
  4. Tag Give More HUGS on all social media platforms so we can join you in spreading the word! Instagram @givemorehugsorg, Twitter @hugsnonprofit, and Facebook @givemorehugs
