July is Parks Make Life Better Month!
In recognition, we want to share a set of messages that are ready to roll out to your community via social media – if you so choose. How amazing will it be to see these messages shared from one end of California to the other, coming from a variety of agencies, individuals and PMLB advocates? Let’s work together to blast social media all month long!
How can you participate? It’s easy!
- Share the key messages with the person at your agency in charge of social media. Is that person you? Even better!
- Encourage the posting of one message per week for the entire month of July.
- To make the most impact, we’re recommending every Tuesday in July and following the schedule below.
- Don’t forget to add your own personal message and the official hashtag - #parksmakelifebetter.
- Are you able to take it a step further? If you have the capabilities, swap out the stock photos with photos representative of your agency or community. We’re working on versions that you can edit for future social media blast campaigns!
(All Tuesdays, ending with the final message on the last day of the month)
- July 2 – Play Message
- July 9 – Nature Message
- July 16 – Exercise Message
- July 23 – Positive Spaces Message
- July 30 – Gathering Places Message
- July 31 – Forever Message
