On #GivingTuesday share how you are making a difference on social media
28 Nov 2014
As a University that is committed to making a positive difference to society through all of our activities, we are excited to be taking part in the UK's Giving Tuesday campaign, on 2 December 2014
Established in the US in 2012, #GivingTuesday provides a charitable alternative to the start of the Christmas shopping season, a time for people to begin the festive season with a day of giving and making a commitment to charity.
Staff and students at the University already give generous time and support to a range of initiatives and there are a wide range of examples at our making a difference blog.
Two examples of initiatives staff are already supporting – and where we are encouraging more to get involved – are our volunteer School Governor Initiative and Workplace Giving.
If you use social media, we are inviting you to share how you are making a difference on #GivingTuesday, using #GivingTuesdayUOM and #GivingTuesday.
Take an #unselfie as follows:
- Download an #unselfie sheet
- Write on it the reason why you support your chosen charity, whether it’s through volunteering your time or donating money through Workplace Giving or another method of giving
- Take a selfie holding the card in front of your face
- Upload the photo to Twitter
