The popularity of the selfie is phenominal. Selfies are the most well recognized trend among social media users, but they paint an incomplete picture of their subjects.
The Servie Challenge launched by VolunTEEN Nation Ambassador Kate Parchman is designed to allow social media users to show a more complete picture of themselves. Servies are images of individuals/groups engaging in acts of service to others and posted on social media sites with the #serviechallenge.
Servies do the following:
1. Serives show a more complete picture of an individual, going beyond physical appearance to highlight interests, talents, character and dedication.
2. Servies share ideas for service opportunities. Many willing individuals wish to serve but do not know what groups or organizations are in need of assistance. Also, first time volunteers may wish to share the experience with a friend, and servies can help volunteers to connect and coordinate efforts, leading to an increase in volunteer support for the organization and a more fulfilling experience for the volunteers.
3. Servies raise awareness, highlighting issues, needs and solutions to problems in our local communities and around the world.
4. Servies inspire others and impact communities: Servies show needs being met, lives being improved and communities changing for the better.
5. The Servie Challenge is a great way to show, share and increase your impact on the world. What you need to do for the Servie Challenge is post servies to your profiles and then challenge other social media users to do the same. Servies can change the world, but you have to take the first step.
Post your servies with #serviechallenge.
