Show Your Support for Longmore This Giving Tuesday

Support the Longmore Institute on Disability on #GivingTuesday.


We're gearing up for Giving Tuesday on December 1st, and are optimistic that we'll have another successful year! Our goal is to raise $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! There are two ways you can show your support.


Phyisical Template


We have two different phyisical templates this year. To use our templates, click here & print one of them.


See this example from one of Longmore's student fellows, Nathan Burns:


Longmore Fellow Nathan Burns. They are white, have short blonde hair, and are wearing glasses. They are holding up a sign that says "I support the Longmore Institute on Disability because understanding and promoting disability culture is important and vital to the world we live in."


Four Easy Steps to Make your own #Unselfie


1) Print out one of these pages:


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 November 30th (the day before Giving Tuesday!)

Virtual Template


If you want to show your support on your social media profiles, we also have transparent PNGs you can add over your profile picture for the day. There are four versions to choose from, so pick which one you like best!

For instructions on how to add this to your images, check out this tutorial.

Here's an example using a picture of Longmore Associate Director Emily Beitiks:

A picture of Emily Beitiks surrounded by multicolor stars superimposed over the image. Text reads "I support the Longmore Institute on Disability on #GivingTuesday."

Thank you! 


Also, a big thank you to the everyone who has shown their support for Longmore during past Giving Tuesdays. Here's a few #UnSelfies from years previous:


A grid of nine photos of different people holding their support for Longmore signs, or with text of their sentiments. The people in the photos range in age, gender, race, and ability, and there are lots of smiling faces.
