5 Reasons to Post an #UnSelfieCNY!
Guest post written by Ruthnie Angrand, Communications Intern from S. I. Newhouse School of Journalism
So you’ve enjoyed Thanksgiving. You’ve survived Black Friday and you’re dodging online promotions from every corner of the internet on Cyber Monday. While retail may be rewarding to our families and economy, we can’t forget to cheer on the individuals and groups that exemplify the spirit of giving. Our neighborhoods rely on a jolt of charity and selfless service to stock up food pantries, get homes winter-ready and help clothe and feed those in need. In all of our spending, we see the gaps that nonprofits are able to fill alongside donors and volunteers and it’s important to celebrate their unselfish deeds. That’s why the Central New York Community Foundation promotes #GivingTuesday, the national day for giving, in Central New York.
Through our #unSelfieCNY campaign, Central New York can share the amazing giving stories of our nonprofits, donors and volunteers by taking a photo with a sign that tells us to whom you give, or why you give. It’s called an #unselfie. Upon the completion of Giving Tuesday, one lucky person will be picked at random to tell us which nonprofit in Central New York they’d like us to grant $1,000 to in their name. The power to share and the power to give fall in the hands of each and every one of us.
