#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 American Childhood Cancer Organization. #GivingTuesday 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 the ACCO! Help us reach our goal of over #10,000!
It’s easy to enter. Just submit your story here and follow these three steps to start gathering votes:
- Write or record your #MyGivingStory: Think of a story or experience that inspired you to give to the ACCO, choose which format you will use to tell your story (written essay or video), and write or record your story.
- Post your story: Go to the #MyGivingStory contest page and click on “Submit Here.” Select the ACCO from the nonprofits to receive a grant if your story wins and then upload your story.
- Share your story on social media! The more votes you get, the better your chances of winning one of the #GivingTuesday prizes for ACCO! Be sure to share your story on our page using the #MyGivingStory hashtag and we will help direct supporters to vote in the online gallery. The 30 stories with the most votes will become the Finalists!
At the ACCO, we understand the damaging domino effect childhood cancer can have on the entire family, and how isolating it can become caring for a child with a serious illness. When your child is first diagnosed with cancer you may feel completely lost, but you need to know that you are not alone. In addition to raising funds for childhood cancer advocacy and family support, a central element of the ACCO mission is to provide free resources to empower families to make informed treatment decisions and enhance their understanding of the cancer journey.
