To celebrate National Smile Month this year, a new social media videochallenge is taking place online.
#RaiseASmile is designed to be a fun, interactive way to spread the message about the importance of a healthy diet for a healthy smile.
Anyone and everyone is being encouraged to join in by making a fun video and challenging a friend to do the same.
How to take part:
Make & upload a snappy video “Raising A Smile” (from frown/neutral face to beaming) Then add the tag of whoever you are challenging next, on whichever social media channel is your favourite – or all of them! “I challenge ..(Tag) .. to #RaiseASmile and click to sign for change.”
You could Raise A Smile anywhere and in any way.
Examples of moving upwards and ending up with a beaming Smile include:
....raising a teacup or pint, lifting your head up, going up stairs, sitting to standing, holding a balloon, flying a toy aeroplane…
For those more adventurous: jumping on a trampoline, riding on a rollercoaster, sitting on a swing, climbing a climbing wall
....raising a flag on a flagpole, a box on a forklift truck, flying a kite…
And if you're feeling shy you don't have to make a personal appearance, simply use an object or image.
