The holiday season is well underway and it’s become pretty clear that it’s going to be tumultuous one, what with the recent election and the overall sense of global unease that seems to have come with it.
It’s even gotten a lot of people talking revolution, and that’s perfectly understandable. So, with that in mind and the spirit of giving that accompanies every holiday season in the air, we thought we’d start a revolution of our own: #TheGiveRevolution.
It’s simple. We want to give you the gift of giving and all you have to do in return is do a little giving of your own. Sound complicated? Well, trust us, it’s not. Read on to learn more.
What is #TheGiveRevolution?
First of all, before getting into the contest itself, it may help to learn a little about us and why we do what we do. Here at Live Picture Studios, we’re all about inspiring, and we’re not just talking about inspiring with the videos and photos we create.
We’re talking about inspiring our customers as well as ourselves by giving the gift of creation, community, love, and laughter. We want to make a real difference in people’s lives, and that’s what #TheGiveRevolution is all about.
To join, you just have to perform a random act of kindness for someone, record a live video of your generosity in action, and upload the video to your Facebook page with the hashtags #TheGiveRevolution, #LivePictureStudios, and #Kvibe. Then, start promoting it by sharing it with friends and inspiring them to do the same.
Whether it’s holding a door open for an elderly person, buying a coffee for someone behind you on line, or giving a plate of hot food to a cold person in need, the point is to try to do something, even if it’s something small, to make a difference in someone else’s life.
From there, in order to be eligible for one of the free video prizes, you then have to just pop over to #TheGiveRevolution page, fill in the brief form, and provide a link to your live video.
What could you win?
The contest will run from December 28th 2016 until February 27th 2017, and the winning video will be selected randomly, which means you could win for even the smallest act of kindness.
As far as the possible prizes, there are some options. Winners will get to choose one of the following:
1) Full Wedding Video Package (Estimated value of $3000)
2) Corporate Video (Estimate value of $2500)
3) Engagement Shoot (Estimated value of $1600)
Here’s the catch when it comes to the prizes, and don’t worry, it has nothing to do with the quality of the prize packages themselves, but with who ultimately receives them. You see, should you win, you have to give the prize to someone else.
Before you get all worked up, remember, we’re giving you the gift of giving, and trust us, it’ll feel a whole lot better than keeping the prize for yourself in the end.
The fine print…
Again, the whole point of #TheGiveRevolution is to spark a movement of giving, something, anything, to make a difference in people’s lives. So, if you just want to be a part of it, simply upload your live video to your Facebook page with the #TheGiveRevolution, #LivePictureStudios, and #Kvibe hashtags.
But like mentioned above, in order to be eligible for any of the free prizes, you’ll need to then head to #TheGiveRevolution page, fill in the form, and link to your video. In addition, there are a few more rules.
First off, videos can be no longer than 90 seconds and must be created using Facebook Live or via uploading the video to Facebook. And there is no limit to the number of live videos you can submit.
In fact, we encourage you to create as many as possible. The more giving the better. Just remember that each video must be submitted to our website individually in order for it to qualify to win.
Pertaining to the submission form, all fields must be filled in in order to officially qualify, including your NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS, and VIDEO URL LINK. You must also provide the name and email address of someone to whom you’d like to give the prize should you win.
Remember, we’re giving you the gift of giving. You absolutely must give the prize away, so if you really want one of the free packages for yourself, you may want to start telling your friends about #TheGiveRevolution and how to sign up.
Get to giving!
No matter where you stand pertaining to the recent political chaos, there’s no denying that the world is an uneasy place at the moment, and that it’s the perfect time of year to try injecting a little of the giving spirit back into it.
That’s the core of #TheGiveRevolution. We want to give something back, but we want to encourage others to do the same in the process. The more giving the better right now, and remember, it doesn’t have to be truckload of food for the homeless.
It could be as simple as a kind gesture or greeting. Believe us, during times like this, that’s often all people need. So, get out there and get to giving, and show us the results!
