Selfless Selfie

Angela Hospice staff members share why they
support #GivingTuesday in an #UNselfie.
The selfie is everywhere. It's probably all over your Facebook and Instagram feeds, close-up after close-up of other people's faces. We've all taken them, no need to lie. But this holiday season how about taking a selfless selfie?

On Tuesday, December 2, aka #GivingTuesday, you can jump on the #UNselfie bandwagon. You still get to take a picture of yourself but this time it's for a good cause. Win-win, right?

Just download and print our #UNselfie flyer, fill it out, and then take an #UNselfie. After you're done upload it to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram. Then be sure to tag Angela Hospice and use the hashtags, #UNselfie and #GivingTuesday. Let us know why you are supporting Angela Hospice on #GivingTuesday. Turn it into a group activity at your holiday events by having your friends and family take pictures of each other. Upload them inbetween bites of pie. Inspire everyone to participate in #GivingTuesday.

So what exactly is #GivingTuesday? It’s a global day of giving. Founded in 2012 by New York's 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nation Foundation, #GivingTuesday was inspired by the core Jewish value of tikkun olam, which means, "repairing the world."

The team of influencers and founding partners, which includes CEOs and company presidents among others, has launched a movement that has engaged over 10,000 organizations worldwide.

"On the cusp of this gift-giving season, #GivingTuesday is such a refreshing reminder that the best gifts we give are those which cannot be repaid," said Bob Alexander, Angela Hospice's business development manager.

#GivingTuesday brings together 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.
Taking an #UNselfie is one of many things you can do to participate in #GivingTuesday. Give a boost to a friend in need or give a hand to someone you love. Give your time. Give some money to your favorite charity. Write a wonderful review about the work one of the #GivingTuesday organizations is doing. It doesn't matter how you give on #GivingTuesday, the important part is that you just do.
