12 Days of Inspiration in YOUR Community (VIDEOS)

Happy Holidays from Go Inspire Go! 'Tis the season to celebrate, give and inspire those around you as we come to an end of another great year. 2012 has been an eventful year for GIG as we continue to grow, creating three times the amount of original content as last year. We wouldn't have been able to do it without our 30+ volunteers around the globe, the everyday do-gooders we feature, and folks like YOU! To thank you, we wanted to kick off the holidays with 12 Days of Inspiration!

But before we get to the deets, check out our GIG Virtual Holiday Greeting Card to show our gratitude:


Starting today, 11/13, we will be counting down to Christmas by sharing one our original GIG stories each day, followed by an inspiring action item we want you to do right away.

We're asking you to share what you were inspired to do via social media.

KIND Snacks has partnered with Go Inspire Go to launch our 12 Days of Inspiration. We kicked off our 12 days of inspiration with a GIG Spark video from across the street from the Ferry Building in San Francisco, giving postcards to strangers and asking them to write a message to soliders who can't spend the holidays with their family, and in true GIG fashion, we created this video for you.

Intent, GaiamTV and Volunteer Match are also joining virtual forces with us to share via their social media platforms each of the 12 days. We need your help to spead cheer and inspiration in your community.

Thanks for the love -- won't you join us?

Check GoInspireGo.com starting Thursday, Dec. 13! We're counting down to Christmas by sharing our inspiring videos for 12 consecutive days on GIG's website and blog.

HOW TO TAKE ACTION:

Our goal is to see how many countries we can get to share our campaign.

1. We need you and your friends/community to download this special 12 days GIG logo and post it as your/their profile pic for 12 days.
2. Share our FB posts/tweets everyday for 12 days. We want to see how many countries we can reach with our message.
*Day 1* Inspire to write a letter to a soldier:

GIG teams up with Kind Healthy Snacks to wish our soldiers a happy holiday and express appreciation for all that they've done for our country.

Call to action: Inspire to create and write a hand-written letter to a solider in the military

* Make sure to check back tomorrow for Day 2!

(Special thanks to Sirima Sataman, of Ink.Paper.Plate for helping us personalize our KIND GIG cards with her letter press. Loved pressing each

card by hand!)
