What to do until #GivingTuesday? #FriendAFarmer!
Are you appreciative of the folks that grow your food, fuel, feed and fiber? Then #FriendAFarmer today to let them know how much they are appreciated! Here’s what you can do:
- Write a short appreciation note to a farmer on a piece of paper or small whiteboard.
- Include #FriendAFarmer on the letter/whiteboard.
- Have a picture taken – or take a “selfie” – of you holding the letter, and post the picture on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
- Make sure you tag the picture with #FriendAFarmer and @nationalfarmersunion to be included on our website and in our Facebook album!
