You will see #GivingTuesday and #UNselfie on our Instagram and Facebook pages for the entire month of December. #Giving Tuesday is a campaign that started in America 3 years ago and is now a worldwide movement. It is an opportunity to kick start the giving season and consider what YOU can give to YOUR local community organisation. #UNselfie means to be selfless and is part of the #Giving Tuesday campaign.

How would you like to share your time, passion or resources with Interchange Outer East? There are three ways you can get involved with us:

• Encourage
• Share
• Give

Encourage

If you are a volunteer, we would love for you to encourage your friends to consider volunteering with you at Interchange Outer East. You can use all of these graphics below on your Instagram and Facebook pages to encourage your friends to be #UNselfie (selfless) with you in giving up time. While a #selfie is of you specifically, to be #UNselfie, is not about you, it’s about someone else!

You can also use quotes from famous people to express why you volunteer and what you get out of it. Here are some you might like to use: “Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.” – Martin Luther King Jnr. “Think of giving not only as a duty but as a privilege.” – John D. Rockefeller. You can also write these quotes, or anything else on an A4 page with black texta and get someone to take a photo of you with it! It’s supposed to be fun and dynamic! Famous people like Hugh Jackman and One Direction get involved too, so you can follow the #GivingTuesday and #UNselfie hashtags and see what happens across the world!

Share

If you are a parent, carer, or young person who accesses our services at Interchange Outer East, we would love for you to share your passion for Interchange with your family and friends during December. You can do this online or in person. Feel free to use some of the social media graphics if you would like to.

Give

We welcome any donations to Interchange Outer East this December. Donations help us to expand our services and reach more people in our local community.
