Give Back this Giving Tuesday with an #UnSelfie

We're gearing up for Giving Tuesday and are optimistic that we'll have another successful year with a goal of raising $5,000 to fund the many educational and outreach programs we put on at the Longmore Institute throughout the year.


Whether or not you will personally give on Giving Tuesday, we'd love if you would send us a photo this year articulating why your support the Longmore Institute!


To use our template, click here & print. Please see this example sample from Longmore's very own Catherine Kudlick:

Four Easy Steps to Make your own #Unselfie


1) Print out this page:


2) Write (in large, clear lettering) why you support the Longmore Institute

-This could be any number of reasons: why disability awareness is important, how Longmore’s approach has influenced you, what Superfest brings to the table, etc.

-Examples from past supporters: “I believe in the power of disability culture” and “Because disability culture rocks.” Please feel free to be as creative as you like! 


3) Take your picture holding up the piece of paper in front of you.


4) Upload the photo to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media channels and remember to include the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #UnSelfie and #Longmore

-If you don’t use social media, but still want to share your #UnSelfie, email it to us at the Longmore Institute: and we can share it for you!


If taking an unselfie isn’t your thing but you still want to help, send us a picture of yourself and your statement about why you support the Longmore Institute and we’ll turn it into an unselfie for you!


Please share and send all #UnSelfies or photos/testimonials before December 2nd (the day before Giving Tuesday!)
