Social Media Kit: #BearHugs 2017
Share the Love and Give a #BearHug!
Join us in celebrating Valentine’s Day by sharing your love of Missouri State! Submit BearWear pics of you and your Valentine and we’ll share on the Alumni Association Facebook page on Valentine’s Day. Upload your photo of your Bear Valentine to http://bit.ly/2BearHugs2017 and tell us your story. It can be anyone you choose—husband, wife, significant other, children, pets, or your best pal ever!
#BearHugs all around for the #BearCrowd

#BearHugs from Boomer and Sugar Bears on Valentine’s Day
Boomer wouldn’t miss out on this special day and neither should you! Catch Boomer and the Sugar Bears at Plaster Student Union on Valentine’s Day at 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Boomer will make an appearance to give out real #BearHugs, candy and conversation hearts. Take a selfie with your favorite Bear, Boomer, and share on social media. Be sure to tag your posts #BearHugs so we can re-share.

How to show your support for a crowdfunding campaign
- Make a gift. Big or small, every gift counts.
- Become an advocate. Create a GiveCampus account and gain the ability to track your impact. See how many clicks, gifts, and dollars your outreach generates.
- Share the campaign by word of mouth or via the campaign’s Facebook and Twitter buttons.
- Create a matching gift or challenge to encourage others in your network to give. You can match dollar for dollar up to a fixed amount and even structure your challenge to be based on donor participation.
- Upload a personal plea – a short video to explain your support and to encourage others to give.
