#GivingTuesday #BigKidsGive Photobooth at UCI!
One of the first major events happening this year for our brand new chapter is #GivingTuesday! Help us spread the magic of Camp Kesem and the spirit of #GivingTuesday by coming out to our photobooth on 12/3 on Ring Road! All you have to do is take a picture and hashtag #GivingTuesday and #BigKidsGive. IT’S THAT EASY!
If our school has the most hashtags on #GivingTuesday by putting #BigKidsGive and @Camp Kesem at UCI, we will receive $500, which will go a LONG way for our camp this year. All it takes is a simple hashtag. We’d greatly appreciate it!
#GivingTuesday, a new giving movement by the UN Foundation which follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, kicks off the holiday giving season with a day dedicated to giving – harnessing the power of social media and the generosity of people to bring about real change in their communities. This year, Camp Kesem at UCI will partner with #GivingTuesday by launching the #BigKidsGive photo campaign. We will be setting up our photo booth on Ring Road and we invite all of you guys to help us spread the Camp Kesem magic and #GivingTuesday spirit. Each photo booth will feature three special props (and more!) – the beloved Camp Kesem mascot, Karl the Caterpillar, a “Donate to Camp Kesem at UCI” sign, and a #GivingTuesday #BigKidsGive sign. Each participant will be invited to take a photo and share it via their social media channels including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram with the special #GivingTuesday and #BigKidsGive hashtags.
Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013 from 11AM-3PM at Ring Road (Specific location TBA)

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on December 3, 2013. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses and individuals – to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global moment that is dedicated to giving around the world.
