Nga-zhchigemi onji Nibi | We will do it #BecauseOfWater

 

The inaugural Great Lakes Water Walk is less than two weeks away and we’re asking for your help in spreading the word! We want to get as many people out to this walk as possible, to share the message that Water is sacred – and we need to reawaken the deep love and reverence for Water to inspire people to take action to protect it! We are running a hashtag campaign #BecauseOfWater to raise awareness.

 

Here’s How to Participate:

 

Step 1: Create a photo or video. It can be of or with water, but it doesn’t have to be. If it’s a video, explain in the video why you will be walking in or supporting in some way the Great Lakes Water Walk on September 24th in Toronto and include the statement ‘Because Of Water‘. It can be as simple as saying “I will walk with the Great Lakes Water Walk on September 24th because Water is sacred and I want to take action to protect it! I will walk #BecauseOfWater.” If it’s a photo, you can take a selfie with a body of water, you could hold a sign that has the hashtag #BecauseOfWater written on it or you could use the online photo editor Canva to overlay text on your image.

 

Step 2: Share your photo or video on your own social media channels: Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Explain in the text caption why you will be walking for water this fall in the Great Lakes Water Walk. Include the hashtag #BecauseOfWater in your explanation.

 

Step 3: TAG the Great Lakes Water Walk social channel in your post: @GreatLakesWalk on Twitter, @GreatLakesWaterWalk on Facebook, @greatlakeswaterwalk on Instagram.

 

BONUS POINTS: Share this with a friend and encourage them to make their own #BecauseOfWater post!!
