To help raise awareness about homeless LGBT youth, the #40tononeday campaign is asking you to post an “unselfie” on Wednesday.
According to 40tononeday.org:
#40toNoneDay is an opportunity to raise public awareness about LGBT youth homelessness, and to provide supporters with simple ways to make a difference.
The Internet is such a powerful tool for making change in our world and reaching wide and diverse audiences. We’ll be asking folks to show their support by taking “unselfies” with our #40toNoneDay signs and sharing them on social media. Basically, we want to flood the Internet with these images to show the world that everyone can make a difference.
Communities will also participate offline by hosting discussion groups, setting up “unselfie” photo booths, and urging local officials to recognize #40toNoneDay by way of a resolution or proclamation.
The organizers at #40toNoneDay have made it simple for you to participate. All you have to do is snap a photo of yourself holding up one of the pre-made posters on their website and post it to social media. Their website also offers lots of interesting facts that educate the public about LGBT youth homelessness and provides resources of other ways that you can help.
