#GivingTuesdayNow: Selfie Photo, Video and Quote Submission – Steps and Tips

Thanks for being a part of the national conversation to give when our communities need it most. Because of you, we will get through this together. Follow these simple steps to submit a photo, video or quote for our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign.

Photo Submission

Step 1: Gather your materials: blank sheet of paper (recommend 8.5 x11 white printer paper), a permanent marker in a dark easy to read color (recommend a sharpie with a tip that is bigger than a ballpoint pen, avoid yellow, orange or pink) and cell phone with a camera app.

Step 2: Write this phrase in the first line. Choose the “I” or “We” based on who is in the picture.

I GIVE BECAUSE or WE GIVE BECAUSE

Step 3: Look into your heart and write down why you give on the 2nd line.

Step 4: Hold the sign up, get close enough for your face and sign to be in the shot.

 

Step 5: Email your picture to your relationship manager or send to bpinnix [@] calfund [.] org.

If you are on social media, share your username with us and we will tag you. If you are not on social media not a big deal, you can still be a part of this!

Please do this as soon as you can and at least by Thursday, April 30th. Email us if you have any questions.

Video Submission

Step 1: Find your smart phone. Pull up the video recorder.

Step 2: Hold your phone vertically.

Step 3: Look into the screen and speak from the heart for no more than 1 minute or so. No need for a sign or anything. Just your face and your voice. Follow this general script: “My name is [blank]. I have a donor advised fund at CCF and I give because [blank].”

Step 5: Email your video to your relationship manager or send to bpinnix [@] calfund [.] org

If you are on social media, share your username with us and we will tag you. If you are not on social media not a big deal, you can still be a part of this!

Please do this as soon as you can or at least by Thursday, April 30th. Email us if you have any questions along the way.

Quote Submission

This option is super simple. Just email your relationship manager or bpinnix [@] calfund [.] org with your quote.

“I give because [blank]” No more than 25 to 35 words. We will design your quote for a social media graphic so short and sweet is best for that medium.

Please note that not all submissions will be used during the campaign but we will find a way to to use as many submissions as we can.

General Tips and Reminders:

  • No answer is wrong
  • Keep it personal
  • Keep it short
  • Use good natural light and make sure the light is hitting your face not behind you
  • Write as neatly and big as you can
