Upcoming Events

November 28, 2017: #GIVING TUESDAY is a great opportunity to support Stand with Trans and share your story. Click here for more info.

#MyGivingStory contest opens today!  

 

Every act of giving has a story…
what is yours?


#MyGivingStory is a social media storytelling contest created to foster a public conversation about giving and to inspire more people to give. From now through the end of November, we encourage you to share stories about how and why you give to the causes you care about.  We will be handing out a number of prizes throughout the month, with the winning story writers receiving grants up to $10,000 to give to their favorite nonprofit organization!

It's easy to enter.  Just submit your story here and follow these three steps to start gathering votes:

  1. Write or record your #MyGivingStory: Think of a story, experience, or person that inspired you to give, choose which format you will use to tell your story (written essay or video), and write or record your story.
  2. Post your story: Go to our contest page and click on “Submit Here.” Select the nonprofit that would receive a grant if your story wins and upload your story.
  3. Share your story on social media! The more votes you get, the better your chances of winning one of our prizes!  Direct people to vote in the online gallery.  The 30 stories with the most votes will become the Finalists.
     

Some additional tips and requirements:

  • #MyGivingStory is open to legal residents of the U.S., who are age 13 and older.
