Post Your “Unselfie” and Share Why You Give

The Children’s Science Center is participating in a worldwide “unselfie” campaign on social media to raise awareness of the need for giving. We also want to celebrate our donors and the reasons they support us.  It is simple to participate, post a photo of yourself with a caption that says why you support the Children’s Science Center. We even have an unselfie template (unselfie PDF) for you to use.  Post it to Facebook and/or Twitter and share with friends. Be sure to use the hashtags #childsci and #unselfie. If you do not use social media, participate by emailing your unselfie to us and we will post.
