How to participate
- Create a short video that explains what makes your favorite charity an “Upstander.” Be sure to say the name of the charity you are nominating and how it creates positive change in your community. Videos should be 2 minutes or less and do not need to be highly produced – shooting them on your phone is great. But be creative!
- Upload your video to this challenge page. Be sure to follow the instructions during the upload process to properly select your charity. You will receive an email from Indi when your video has been approved for posting, which could take up to 24 hours.
- Start generating “Buzz” across social media and tell your followers you’ve entered your favorite charity in a contest.
