#givingtuesday week is here so to kick things off, we started a #showerchallenge! how do you feel after a shower? do you sing in the shower like our friend in the video? do you believe everyone deserves to be clean? if so or if you’re just a ham, we invite you to upload your own video to social media with the goal of bringing awareness to the fact that nearly 2,000 men and women in charlotte are home insecure without regular access to showers. here’s the scoop:
- you must be fully clothed, with the water running
- answer the question, “how you feel after a shower” and/or belt out your favorite tune
- share to social media and tag a few friends to do their own video
- tag project outpour in your post and use the hashtag #showerchallenge
- video must be no longer than 30 seconds
- be creative and have fun
we will select our favorite video (based on its originality) and that person will receive a $100 gift card to any store or restaurant of their choice. below is the text you’re welcome to copy and paste for your post (and we even added capitalization just for you!)…
Hey friends! Check out my #showerchallenge video! There are nearly 2,000 men and women on the streets of Charlotte who don’t have regular access to bathing, so that means they miss out on all the benefits showers provide us. Project Outpour is changing that by putting a mobile shower trailer on the streets for humans who are without a home. I challenge So and So (tag 2-3 of your friends here) to make your own 30-second video telling us what a shower means to you or feel free to sing your favorite song! But you gotta do it right – fully clothed and in the bath or shower with the water running! Copy and paste this content along with your video, and tag some of your friends to do the same. Just have fun and be original because Project Outpour will choose one winner who will receive a $100 gift card to a restaurant or store of their choice! If you’d like to donate to their shower trailer (which is almost fully funded), go their page and click the donate button. #givingtuesdayclt #dogoodclt #everydayphilanthropist #giftofclean #cleaninthequeen

on another note, we’re teaming up with kendra scott and sugar creek brewing for some events next week.
get a head start on holiday shopping and join us at kendra scott (southpark mall) on monday, november 26th
from 5pm-8pm. 20% of all sales that evening will be donated back to us. we’ll even have some bubbly and sweet treats on hand. this event is free to attend, and while rsvp’ing isn’t required, it does help help us plan food and drink accordingly. you can rsvp here. this is a great night out for you and your girls or your squeeze, or you could just send you squeeze out with your wish list (ah em!).
on tuesday, november 27th (from 4pm-10pm), gather your peeps and come thirsty! sugar creek brewing is hosting their weekly trivia night, and they’re donating a portion of all beer sales to us. it doesn’t get any better than that! we hope to see you there! for location and more info on their brewery, click here.
