BRING BIG SHELTERBOX WEEK 
TO YOUR COMMUNITY!
    

Big ShelterBox Week is our annual awareness week. Anyone can make a global impact—including you! Join us and our supporters from around the world to raise awareness of our relief efforts in your community. Help us spread the word about our work to assist families who have lost everything after a disaster or humanitarian crisis.     

   

How You Can Help Raise awareness
during the week:


 
  Take part in one or all opportunities to help us
spread the word about ShelterBox's relief work. 

1. TAKE THE DAILY CHALLENGE
Each day, starting Sunday, June 1 through Saturday, June 7, you can take the daily challenge. These are easy ways you can help us spread the word about our relief efforts. 
 
>Sunday, June 1: Talk to two new people today about ShelterBox. Bonus points if you have a face-to-face conversation about why you’re committed to ShelterBox! Snap a photo and share it on Facebook and Twitter using #BigShelterBoxWeek. 
 
>Monday, June 2: Share this ShelterBox story and photo with at least five people today. Print and share it in person, email it and/or share it via social media using #BigShelterBoxWeek.  
 
>Tuesday, June 3: Flaunt the green. Flex your promotional muscle by sporting the ShelterBox logo with pride today—hat, T or your own handmade flair. Snap a selfie and share it on Facebook or Twitter using #BigShelterBoxWeek. 
 
>Wednesday, June 4: Share this ShelterBox story and photo with at least five people today. Print and share it in person, email it and/or share it via social media using #BigShelterBoxWeek. 
 
>Thursday, June 5: It’s Throwback Thursday! Remember your first encounter with ShelterBox – what it was that made you fall in love with our mission? Tell someone your story – in person, via email or via social media. You can even take it further – do you volunteer your time and have a photo of your first ShelterBox presentation, event or other initiative? Post it on Facebook and Twitter using #BigShelterBoxWeek and #tbt. 
 
>Friday, June 6: Share this graphic and the ShelterBox story with at least one person who doesn’t know about ShelterBox today. Print and share it in person, email it and/or share it via social media using #BigShelterBoxWeek.
