On their own they can’t.
As part of our yearlong #Project750 campaign, we have launched #IfHashtagsCouldFeed, a six month online initiative to inspire people to actively contribute towards ending classroom hunger in India. Conceptualised to raise awareness of the fact that while hashtags can do numerous things like highlight issues, start discussions and communicate emotions, unless they are accompanied by action they do not have the power to produce tangible results. In a nutshell, hashtags can help raise awareness, but alone they cannot change the world. People can.
Through this first of its kind fund raising campaign, launched on Social Media Day, we are trying to help people
- Connect to our cause
- Take concrete action that will have a direct impact on a child’s life
- Spread the message via social media to inspire more people to make a difference
