Are you up for a challenge?
We are committed to sharing information about how people can make a difference in their communities. We try to spotlight organizations and their work, easy ways to impact the lives of others through kindness, and share thought-provoking ideas that challenge others to take action. This project is not about our actions and what we do as a family. It is about what we can get others, including you, to do. This post’s purpose is to inform you about an extremely easy way that you can help your favorite nonprofit organization in your community.
The Super Service Challenge is a national campaign to transform business through service. Teams of coworkers join together, serve a nonprofit of their choice and record a video of their service project as an entry into the Challenge. These videos can win funding, provided by The Challenge, for the nonprofit served. 800 companies have participated over the last three years and more than 1,000 nonprofits have been served. As a result, $3 million has been awarded to well-deserving nonprofits.
It really is that simple. You get a few people (co-workers) and you set up a volunteer activity at your favorite nonprofit organization. If you do not have a favorite, let us help you get connected to one. There are more 1.5 million registered nonprofits in the United States. There is a perfect fit for you.
Your group volunteers and films a very short video (less than two minutes) to document the activity. The video needs to answer two questions: how did you serve? and what impact did serving together have on your team? Share your service story by submitting the video before November 30th. The video entry is a chance for your nonprofit to win funding from the $1 million given away by the Super Service Challenge.
See, I told you it was easy. Let me make it even easier for you. The SSC has an app, available for IOS and Android, that allows you to directly upload your video. No camera needed. Just open the app, film the video, and submit it. BOOM! In a few moments you have given your favorite organization an opportunity to win some cash.
Take a few minutes and visit The Super Service Challenge website to learn more. Then, go volunteer. Your video can make a huge difference for a local organization. Your video can generate thousands of dollars that will be used to serve those in need in your area. Your video could change the world.
So, let me ask you again: Are you up for a challenge?
