Hashtag Your Nonprofit Photos for Nonprofit Party
Please post your photos to Instagram using the hashtag #nonprofitpartyatthemuseum and they will be displayed at the event on Thursday! Beginning today, photos with this hashtag will be displayed at the event; we hope that many nonprofits will use this as a way to share photos of employees, volunteers, and their mission at work. This will be a live feed at the event, so please continue to share during the party.
