KEEP IT POPPIN’ FOR JAWONIO

A bubblegum challenge to raise funds for people with special needs
"My name is Sabrina HoSang Jordan and I am on the Jawonio Foundation Board of Directors. Since 1947, Jawonio, in New York has been dedicated to inspiring people with special needs to reach their highest potential. Jawonio supports 10,000 children and adults with disabilities and special needs annually. My cousin Anthony has Down Syndrome. Nothing stops him and he loves Jawonio. I love to see all that Anthony is able to do thanks to Jawonio."

You're invited to join us in our "bubbleraiser"!
HERE'S HOW TO DO IT:

Using my video as a guide, create your own

1. Unwrap your bubble gum and have it ready
2. Start Recording
3. Introduce yourself and say "I am (name) (optional, include any relationship to Jawonio you could mention.) I have accepted the Keep it Poppin' Challenge for Jawonio and I was nominated by ______. I challenge ____, _____, _____." (name 3 friends)
4. Then say, “here goes” – put the gum in your mouth, chew, blow bubble until it pops.
5. Then say, “Keep it Poppin’ for Jawonio” and end your video.
6. Upload the video to your Facebook and/or Instagram and include the following in your post:
  • a. Tag the 3 people you challenge
  • b. Tag Jawonio on Facebook using @Jawoniocommunity. Tag Jawonio on Instagram using @Jawonio
  • c. Use Hashtag #keepitpoppin4Jawonio in your post
  • d. Include "You have 24 hours to do the challenge and/or donate on Jawonio's page at:
    www.jawonio.org/keepitpoppin
  • e. Include "PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A GIFT OF $10 OR MORE" in your post.
  • f. Make sure your video and post settings are "public" so it can be shared by others.


If you weren't nominated, you can still start your own video challenge. What if you can’t blow a bubble? That’s ok-- you can still participate in this fundraiser by making a donation on this page and sharing it with your friends on Facebook and/or Instagram. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY IN SUPPORT OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.
