#SpreadtheGood: Dayton Region will kick-off on Friday, September 12, 2014, at Downtown Dayton Partnership’s Urban Nights, and run through December 2, 2014 (#GivingTuesday). The campaign will highlight the efforts and stories of not-for-profit organizations and volunteers in the community, while encouraging others to #SpreadtheGood in the region by performing a good deed on behalf of a local nonprofit.
Participants will be encouraged to snap a photo of themselves performing the good deed and share it on the Foundation’s social media pages. Each photo entry will enter the featured nonprofit into the Foundation’s Retweet to Give (RT2Give) challenge that will award a one-time $1,000 grant on #GivingTuesday.
Anyone in Greater Dayton is invited to participate in the #SpreadtheGood challenge and can do so by visiting the Foundation’s table on Courthouse Square during Urban Nights and signing up to take the challenge by answering the question “How do you #SpreadtheGood in the Dayton Region?” Additionally, individuals and organizations unable to attend Urban Nights also are encouraged to participate by following the steps below.
