#MyGivingStory is a nationwide social media storytelling contest that aims to foster a public discussion about the reasons people give.
From November 17th–December 31st, 2016, we are asking individuals to share personal stories about what inspires them to give (time, money, advocacy, etc.) to a favorite nonprofit organization.
The top 20 stories with the most "likes" on Facebook will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges for final adjudication.
Storytellers should share and promote their submissions on social media; the more people reached, the more chances you and the UCCE Master Gardeners of Orange County will be highlighted in one of the top “liked” posts!
Judges will pick six winners. Winners will be announced in January and the nonprofit organizations featured in their essays will receive grants between $2,000-10,000.
How to Enter #MyGivingStory
- Go to the contest entry form or visit the #MyGivingStory tab on #GivingTuesday's Facebook page.
- Post a short essay (150- 600 words) responding to the question, “What inspires you to give?”
- In it, tell the story of a specific instance in which you supported a nonprofit organization in a way that was meaningful to you.
- Submit your story by December 31st
- Share and promote your submission on social media with #MyGivingStory and #GivingTuesday.
