Win grants up to $5,000 AS part of #MyGivingStory contest!

Yesterday, #GivingTuesday launched the #MyGivingStory contest, a nationwide social media storytelling contest that aims to foster a public discussion about the reasons people give. Now thorugh Nov. 24th, ask your donors, social media followers, volunteers, and wider community to post post short essays (200 word minimum) on the #MyGivingStory tab of #GivingTuesday’s Facebook page. The essays should answer the following question:

What inspires you to give? Tell the story of a time you supported a nonprofit organization in a way that was meaningful to you. Include which organization you gave to and why.

The top 15 essays "liked" on Facebook will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges for final adjudication. Encourage your storytellers to share and promote their submissions on social media; the more people reached, the more chances your organization will be highlighted in one of the top "liked” posts!

Winners will be announced on #GivingTuesday and will be awarded $100-500 gift cards to GlobalGiving. The nonprofit organizations featured in their essays will receive grants between $1,000-5,000.
