Stonewall Gardens

 

Saturday, May 14th is National Dance like a Chicken Day!
In support of Stonewall Gardens and the wonderful chicken coop, we are challenging YOU to participate and show us your best chicken dance.
Here’s what you do:

  1.  Make a video of you and your family dancing like chickens (Accompanying chicken dance music is totally optional!)
  2. Post your video to Facebook on May 14th
  3. In your post, tag other people and challenge them to also post a video
  4. Tag at least 5 people and consider using this tagging strategy
    • Tag 2 friends at Stonewall Jackson Elementary
    • Tag 2 family members/friends who aren’t connected to Stonewall
    • Tag 1 “long shot” – pick someone famous, someone who has some association with chickens/gardens, or someone who might not actually play the game but would be AWESOME to get involved
    • Please also tag Stonewall Gardens on Facebook and use the hashtags ‪#‎DanceLikeAChickenDay‬ and ‪#‎StnwlGardens‬ if you use twitter.
  5. Remind the people that you tag that if they aren’t able (or willing) to post a video of themselves dancing that they can also support the garden with a donation via Facebook or the website.

 

A recommended donation amount is $14 since it will be May 14th. (Donate Here)

Feel free to video yourselves ahead of time, but please don’t post your video on Facebook until May 14th.
This a fun way to bring awareness and excitement to the garden program. Let’s show everyone how much we love our chickens!!!
