On #GivingTuesday December 1st, we called on members of the buildOn Movement to show your support for service and education by sharing an #UNSelfie showing why you’re passionate about buildOn youth #GivingEveryDay. You came through in a big way! With an anonymous donor contributing $1 for each #UNSelfie shared, your beautiful faces and words helped spread our movement and contributed to more than $20,000 in donations on #GivingTuesday. Well done!
Check out a few of our favorite #GivingTuesday #UNSelfies:

(The first $500 in donations will be matched today!) the link to donate is in my bio! #thankyou #givingtuesday #buildon #bostonmarathon
It's #givingtuesday ! Get into the spirit of the Holiday season by being #unselfie and donating your time and/or a monetary contribution to a cause that's close to you! I had the opportunity to work with #buildon over Thanksgiving and couldn't have been more excited to do so. It's such a great organization with an even greater cause. It feels amazing to give back and make a difference. And just because the Holidays will eventually pass, doesn't mean the spirit needs to go along with them. Make a difference year round || #givingeveryday || www.buildon.org @buildon
I have learned more from giving than I have learned from the pages of a textbook. And what I have learned can never be tested on a standardized test. Giving has taught me to be a better human and more open minded to the diverse world we live in. I am grateful for the opportunities @buildon has given me along with enhancing the amount I give as an individual to my community and the world. I would like to stay away from a designated #givingtuesday and replace it with #givingeveryday because everyday an act of kindness can change the world.
On this World AIDS Day it is super important to remember that education will reduce an individual's chances of contracting HIV. I had the pleasure of going to Malawi this summer with @daniela_buildon to build a school, which will educate generations to come. Also today is #givingtuesday so take an #UNselfie and post it and we will get a $1 donated for each one. #givingeveryday @buildon
TODAY is #GivingTuesday! Post an #UNSelfie with hashtags #GivingTuesday and #GivingEveryDay and $1 will be donated to BuildOn on your behalf! BuildOn empowers students to serve in their communities and build schools in some of the poorest countries in the world. Through #serving others, students learn to see themselves as the solution and they #elevate their own EXPECTATIONS for themselves and their futures!!! #BeTheChange #EducationIsPower #MakeADifference #MakingTheWorldABetterPlace #ServeOthers #LiveToGive
