Congratulations to the Child and Family Network Centers, the winner of the 2014 #GivingTuesday Photo Challenge!

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014 or #GivingTuesday, post a photo of a sign with your favorite nonprofit's name with the hashtag #GivingTuesday by clicking on Add Your Idea and then uploading a photo. After you post, make sure to give to that nonprofit as well! We're encouraging minimum donations of $20.14 for #GivingTuesday 2014, the biggest #GivingTuesday yet! 

Here's how: 

  1. Make a sign pledging your support of your favorite nonprofit serving Alexandria and  #GivingTuesday. Need a template? Click here. 
  2. Take a photo of yourself or another individual (or animal) holding the sign. 
  3. Login to ACTion or make a new account-it's free and easy! 
  4. Click on Add Your Idea and upload your photo. 
  5. The nonprofits that are represented in at least three photos will be entered in a prize drawing for $100! 
  6. Want to help promote #GivingTuesday through social media? Tweet your photo @GivingTues and @ACTionAlexVA with #unselfie. We'll be tweeting out your photos as well! 
  7. Questions? Please contact: Kerrin Epstein at kerrin.epstein@actforalexandria.org or 703-739-7778.


And here's some inspiration from ACT's office mascot, Maggie Porter and her dad, John Porter, President and Chief Executive Officer of ACT for Alexandria (we recommend giving money instead of biscuits):
