Share the Aware - BartyChallenge2019  - For this year's Barty Challenge, we ask that you share your awareness and share a moment that made you proud of who you are. When were you most proud to be a part of the dwarfism community? Maybe you found the most pride in an LP role model, maybe you found pride in a specific moment, or maybe you find pride in sharing your story with friends, family, coworkers, for even a stranger. Share your awareness, your moment of pride, in a video. 

Follow these instructions to post your #BartyChallenge2019 video on Facebook:
  1. Post your own video clip sharing your most prideful moment(s) to be a part of the dwarfism community. In your video, challenge 3 other people to complete the Barty Challenge. 
  2. Add the hashtag #BartyChallenge2019 to your post, and be sure to tag the three people you challenged. 
  3. Make sure your post is public (so it will show up in our search). 
On November 1, we'll use the hashtag to pull up all participants and enter their names into a raffle to win a sweet prize!  Here are a few that have already been posted.  Don't be left out - Share Your Aware this month.
