Join the Social Media Campaign - 7 Days of Giving on International Volunteer Day!
Birthright Armenia and Armenian Volunteer Corps, together with 20 other organizations, have joined Armenian Progressive Youth to celebrate International Volunteer Day in Armenia.
Volunteering is Giving; it is also much more – sharing, learning, helping, gaining experience, supporting community, improving your world, fulfilment, joy, hope, challenging work, change. Every person who has ever volunteered has a story about how an experience has changed their life or that of people around them.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a week-long social media campaign – 7 Days of Giving -- that will link the growing international ‘Giving Tuesday’ movement and ‘International Volunteer Day’ and encourages everyone who has ever volunteered to share a personal story about what volunteering means to them, over the course of one week.
Starting on November 29, #GivingTuesday, through December 5, #IVD2016Armenia, each person should:
-Share a photo on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) along with a description of how your volunteering experience has impacted you and those around you
-Make sure the photo post is ‘public’
-Use the hashtags: #IVD2016Armenia and #7daysofgiving as well as #GivingTuesday and #GivingTuesdayArmenia
-To help the organizers find your posts more easily, you should also tag #avc and #birthrightarm
The most moving or captivating posts will be re-shared on main social media platforms of Birthright Armenia (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) through December 5 (included).
Attached are ready-to-use visuals for you to use as a profile picture and cover photo during the 7 days of the campaign. Please change your FB cover photo and profile picture on November 29 for the duration of the campaign.
Optional: We have also attached two templates 1, 2, (in the form of layered Photoshop PSD files). If you wish, using Photoshop, you can add these templates on your own photos – the post photo you will share and your cover photo. We have attached two examples for you to see what they look like. If you cannot use Photoshop, it is ok to share your photo and description without using the template.
Remember – begin sharing your photo-stories on November 29!
