Wacky Holidays are a great way to have fun on social media & at home with the family and community!
This is a great time to recognize our Monthly Celebrations. Each month I’m going to highlight a few for you:
Canned Food Month – Host a canned food drive. Have your community drop off their canned goods on your porch and then donate them to your local food pantry. You could also encourage your followers to do the same, or donate themselves. Think of the amazing impact you could make to your community (and all the cupboard space you’ll be freeing up!)
National Children’s Dental Health Month – Find a local, state, or national Non-Profit organization where you can make a donation. You can choose to host one party/sales event where you highlight this organization or you can incorporate them into every party/sales event you host letting your customers know that a % of proceeds will be donated to the organization of your choosing.
National Library Lover’s Month – Like the canned food idea… Host a book drive. Have your community drop off their gently used books on your porch and then donate them to your local school or public library. You could also encourage your followers to do the same, or donate themselves.
Please Note: before doing this be sure to check with your local library to see what kind of books & conditions they are able to accept.
Unique Virtual Social Ideas
Online Baking Social!
February is also National Bake for Family Fun Month! If you & your family LOVE to bake this is your time to shine!
Grab your kiddos or simply do it solo and host your very own Baking Social on social media. It doesn’t even need to be a sales event, it can simply be just for fun!
So how do we do it?
Go Live (or share a recording), host your very own baking show. You can share some of your favorite recipes, and how to prep, as well as bake & serve them.
Not sure about going live? No problem! You can always share a step by step baking tutorial with pictures and the final master piece as well.
Be sure to get your party guests interacting by allowing them to share their favorite recipes, tips and tricks, etc. You never know, you may just find something new to try.
Not a good Baker? GREAT! Ever watch the show Nailed It on Netflix? My daughter LOVES it. Host your very own Nailed it Competition with your friends & family! Everyone will have a blast sharing their unique creations!
BONUS – you can tie in National Cherry & Snack Food Month in your show as well! Bake your heart out!
Simply take a look at the calendar, pick one listed and just roll with it! Each day of the month has something to celebrate so finding unique ways to bring them into your business or home is a great way to spark interaction with your online community, as well as at home with your family.
February 4th – National Thank a Mail Carrier Day – make a little care package with treats and a bottled water & leave it in or by your mail box with a little note simply saying Thank You for being awesome!!
February 6th – Ice Cream for Breakfast Day – well this one’s going to be fun! Grab your favorite ice cream and share what you’re having for breakfast! Ask your followers to join in the fun and share their dish of choice! (don’t worry, holiday calories don’t count – even wacky ones)
February 11th – National Inventors’ Day – Ask your followers what’s one invention they couldn’t live without, or have them come up with a new invention of their own! At home have the kiddos create something new (you never know, you could be retiring early) ha ha!
