Why do you donate to Impact Thrift Stores? Do you have a story to tell?
Telling your story today can benefit Impact Thrift Stores and through the #GivingTuesday movement, other international charities as well!
During November, GivingTuesday.org is running #MyGivingStory, a new storytelling contest that will highlight acts of generosity that may take place outside of the public spotlight.
We’re asking YOU to share your personal reason
for giving to Impact Thrift!
Whether you donate items to fill our stores, volunteer your time or shop our stores, you are making a difference.
It’s easy to Enter #MyGivingStory… here’s how:
-Visit the #MyGivingStory tab on #GivingTuesday’s Facebook page
-Post a short essay (200-words or more) responding to the question, “What inspires you to give?”
-In it, tell the story of a specific instance in which you supported Impact Thrift in a way that was meaningful to you.
–Submit your essay by November 24
-Share and promote your submission on social media with #MyGivingStory, #GivingTuesday and #ImpactThrift
The 15 essays with the most likes on Facebook will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges for final adjudication. Judges will pick 6 winners. Of course, we’ll need your help to get the most likes!
Winners will be announced on #GivingTuesday and will be awarded $100-$500 giftcards to GlobalGiving. The nonprofits featured in their essays (Impact Thrift Stores…hint, hint!) will receive grants between $1,000 and 5,000.
Please consider sharing your #GivingStory….
You win, we win, we ALL win!
