1. Write or record your #MyGivingStory: Think of a story or experience 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 and let us know so that we can share it, too! Direct people to vote in the online gallery. The more votes you get, the better the chances of winning one of the prizes!
The 30 stories with the most votes will become the Finalists.
And remember to share with your network and community! The more stories, the more awareness and the better chances of the C Three Foundation receiving a grant award!
Some additional tips and requirements as stated by the folks running the contest:
#MyGivingStory is open to legal residents of the U.S., who are age 13 and older. Written entries must be between 150 and 1,200 words and may include a photo. Videos must be between 30 seconds and 5 minutes in length and under 100 MB in one of the following formats: AVI, MOV, WMV, MP4, MPEG, FLV, 3GP, and 3G2. All entries must be original, unpublished works. Only one entry per entrant.
As part of the C Three Foundation community, we hope you might take a few minutes to reflect on why giving matters to you, share your story in the #MyGivingStory contest, and, of course, consider naming us as the recipient of a grant prize if you win one. There’s no time like the present!
Submit your story today and share so we can help celebrate how and why you give back!
