#MyGivingStory is a nationwide campaign and social media storytelling contest that will foster a public discussion about the reasons people give. Working in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Facebook, we are asking donors, volunteers, and community members to reflect on why you give to Panhandle Independent Living Center, and then share these personal stories on social media. The winners’ featured nonprofit organizations will receive grant prizes of $2,500-10,000!


The stories should have a minimum of 150 words and should respond to the following prompt:

People give for a multitude of reasons.


What inspires you to give? Tell the story of a time you supported Panhandle Independent Living Center in a way that was meaningful to you.


Submissions will be open until December 31st, 2016 at 5pm ET. The top 20 essays as "liked" by Facebook readers will be sent to a distinguished panel of judges, who will pick six winners.

Two additional honorable mentions for “Best Use of Original Video” and two for "Best Spanish Language" story will be awarded.
