How You Can Participate
First, choose an issue, cause, or global grand challenge you’re inspired to tackle. Whether you want to increase your own knowledge or raise awareness among others, volunteer to remove plastic from the ocean or plant trees in your community, inspire children to get excited about technology or mentor executives to consider ethical implications of technology, launch a startup or innovation project to build something meaningful that addresses a real problem… you’re part of the solution!
Next, think about who you want to challenge. We want this message to spread far and wide! Identify as many people as you can who you think will be inspired to answer the call to action. This is where the multiplier effects come into play (we named this the 10x Impact Challenge for a reason!).
Then create a great message to share on all of your social networking accounts. You’ll post your message on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, and wherever else you live online. Make sure your message tags all those people you identified above!
Here’s a sample post you can start with:
Hi, I’m [YOUR NAME] and I’m committed to [YOUR COMMITMENT TO IMPACT] in the next [TIME PERIOD]. I challenge [@your friends and family] to take the #10xImpactChallenge with me to positively impact the world by making your own commitment and tagging 10 more people in the next 48 hours.
Finally, record a quick video of yourself committing to the challenge and calling on your friends to make their own commitments. Post your message and the video you’ve just made to as many of your social accounts as possible, include the #10xImpactChallenge hashtag, and tag everyone in your network. Give them a 48-hour time limit to respond.
