FAQs

Campaigns

Q. Why should I take part in a Do Something Canada?
A. To make the world suck less...duh! Do Something campaigns are fun and creative ways to serve your community in a way that do not require an adult, a car, or money. In addition to the satisfaction of doing a good thing, campaign participants are also entered to win T-shirts, and other cool stuff. Talk about a win-win!

Q. What is a report back?
A. A report back is proof that you took part in one of our campaigns. We usually ask you upload pics/vids or Instagram pics/vids of you completing the campaign's call to action. #picsoritdidnthappen

Q. Will Do Something Canada help me rock the campaigns?
A. Of course we will, silly! We are nice people after all. For certain campaigns, Do Something Canada will provide all necessary material. These include posters, action guides, and other necessary materials. Beyond that, we'll send campaign emails with updates and tips to help you have the best campaign experience possible.

Q. Can I participate in more than one campaign at a time?
A. Totes! In fact, we encourage it!

Q. I’m having problems with my campaign, and I have a few questions. Who do I reach out to for help?
A. Just send us a note and we'll be more than happy to help. If you reach out to us, we'll do our best to get back to you within one business day. If for some reason you decide to opt-out of emails or texts from us, no worries you will be opted out immediately.

Q. What’s up with these awesome campaign competitions I’m hearing about?
A. Glad you asked! Think you've got what it takes to be a VIP (Very Impactful Person, that is)? For several campaigns, we run exclusive competitions for top members...and that might be you! You’ll face off against other schools to see who can make the biggest impact and send the most creative photos of you in action. Winners get Do Something swag, trophies, and other sweet prizes too! You up for it? Email Patrice at patrice@takingitglobal.org.
