Social Media Toolkit: Hope House Annual Gala

We could not do what we do at Hope House without our amazing community of supporters. In fact, with your help, we will serve 240 teen moms and 360 children this year!

Together we are changing the future for two generations, and we encourage you to share your impact at Hope House with your own communities. How? It’s easy… and it will help you gain greater visibility in your own networks and increase your social media footprint at the same time. The sample posts listed below are designed to serve as a guide when writing social media platform posts. Feel free to modify to reflect your organization’s brand.

Be sure to find our social media platforms and like us!

      

 

Step 1. Access Great Photos and Videos

Hope House can provide high quality photos and videos for you.

  • Archived photos of prior Hope House Galas: Simply click on an image in the sidebar to the right, and then “right click” to select “Save Image As” and save to your own device. You can also download the Hope House Homecoming Gala logo or the Hope House Colorado logo through the same process.
  • Hope House Annual Gala 2019 (the sidebar to the right will be updated after November 5 with photos and videos from the 2019 event).
  • If you choose to take your own pictures and videos, here are a few tips:

Photos:  Take multiple posed or candid shots of your employees at the Gala. Including Hope House signs in the background strengthens your message. Selfies are also fun – or a picture with one of our teen mom guest speakers can be powerful!

Videos: Short shots are best, and we recommend capping your video at 30 seconds. One idea is to ask a fellow employee to share why your company supports Hope House or the community in general. You can even film their answer at the Gala with our stage or signs in the background for a fun visual!

Step 2. Create Facebook, Intragram and Twitter Posts      

Share posts on your social media platforms that demonstrate how you are making a difference in the local community through your support of Hope House. Sample posts for a variety of platforms are provided for your use. Please use #HopeHouseHomecoming, #empoweringteenmoms and #hopehousecolorado in all of your posts!

Sample social media post options are provided below… feel free to use them word for word or just in part. Or come up with your own! Be sure to include a great photo or video – and please be sure to tag Hope House so we can share your posts, too.
