Why I Serve

January, 25 2017

When talking about volunteering, especially corporate volunteering, the "what" or "how" is easy to show in the form of stats and success stories. However, the "why" of giving back tends to get left out - and they why is what keeps us going! So this year, we wanted to give EFNT partners a tool to express why their employees choose to serve.

The Why I Serve photo overlay is a way for everyone to show why they give back to their favorite organization. It is sized for Facebook and Instagram photos, so all you have to do is download it, place it on one of your photos, and share it!

Not sure how to do this? Don't worry - here's an easy step-by-step guide using Canva.com free online resource.

After downloading the Why I Serve photo overlay, sign in to (or sign up for) Canva and select Social Media (800px x 800px) under Create a design.

Upload the photo overlay and the picture(s) you want to use. Once you've uploaded the overlay once, it will stay in your account, so you can re-use it with lots of different photos without uploading it again.

Drag the photo into the workspace and resize it so it fits on the 800px x 800px layout map.

Once the photo is sized correctly, drag the Why I Give photo overlay on top and resize to fit.

Once finished, you can download the image or share it directly to social.

This photo filter is free for EFNT member companies and their employees. Feel free to share it and encourage them to show why they are excited to support your company’s volunteer program. Don't forget - use #EFNT and #WhyIServe to join in the social conversations!
