“UN-Selfie” Definition– A show of support for #GivingTuesday. Take a picture, tag it with #GivingTuesday, and share via your Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, or however you communicate with your friends and family!  


#GivingTuesday has one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. The concept is simple, gift back and then tell everyone you can about how you are giving! The most popular way to do this is by taking a “UN-Selfie”.  Here is a step-by-step on what to do:


STEP 1– Print off one of our “UN-Selfie” templates below or make a sign proclaiming your support for HRTS including the #HungerResponse #HRTS hashtags and directing people to the website.

STEP 2– Take a picture of yourself, or a group holding the sign.  

STEP 3– Post the picture via your preferred social media outlets. Not big on the social media scene? No worries, send the photo via e-mail to and we'll share it for you!

Sample social media message:

I support HRTS because no child should worry about having enough to eat,

I give to HRTS because

Sample script: 

Hi friends! I wanted to share a quick video on why I support the Hunger Response Team of Sterling. I was shocked to find out that 25% of the kids in Loudoun County Schools are considered food insecure. That's 1 in 4! It means a lot to me that we make sure kids in our neighborhood have enough to eat on the weekends. Will you join me in sponsoring a child this Giving Tuesday?

Check out the link in the post and help me reach our goal of 50 kids sponsored. Thank you!

Share a favorite Backpack Buddies packing memory or snap a pic of yourself sponsoring a child.

Sample script:

One of my favorite memories this past year, was the time spent volunteering for HRTS and the Backpack Buddies program. Knowing that every bag I pack goes directly to a child in my neighborhood means a lot.
