What can we do when we can't troop and we are social distancing...

#RLVirtualTroop Initiative: 


With so many troops put on hold, here is your chance to Troop Virtually and spread awareness for a good cause. Each week, we will provide an awareness campaign with photo recommendations and information to post on your social media accounts. We ask that you post to your own social media pages and share with the Rebel Legion to #TroopVirtually

We can’t all be together, but together we can spread awareness!

How it works: 
There is a specific day for each, but posting any time during the week will bring awareness and allow flexibility.  
  • Create a post on your social media account with at least 2 photos, 1 of you and 1 with awareness information.
  • Include a description about the campaign. Samples will be provided, but feel free to customize it and make it your own! Be sure to include the recommended hashtags for visibility.
  • Once you post, share with the detachment group and other relevant groups such as your base. Our goal is to bring awareness each cause while we troop together from afar!

Please do not ask people to support Autism Speaks or their Light It Up Blue initiative. Autism Speaks promotes fear, stigma, and prejudice against autistic people, and has only 1 autistic person out of a total of 28 individuals on its Board of Directors.
Instead, many autistic people prefer ASAN, Autistic Self-Advocacy Network. https://autisticadvocacy.org/

Thank you.

Thank you for your message and concern. The Rebel Legion has supported Autism speaks in the past, which is where this cause originated. I have taken down the post for now and will research further.

It's always nice to know we can support our own! I encourage you to share your photo with our PR team. Please let me know if you see any incorrect information or issues with what I've provided about Epilepsy.

PostPosted: Mon Apr 06, 2020 7:00 pm    Post subject: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month Reply with quote

The entire Month of April is Child abuse prevention Month.

One of the main organizations that puts out the most information regarding this, is Prevent Child abuse America, with local versions in each state. They use the Pinwheels for Prevention program to spread the word about #greatchildhoods, The colors are Silver and Blue and people show support through display of these color pinwheels in their yards and coloring sheets ect. I have ordered a Pinwheels for prevention info and supply kit including reproducible handouts to make your own pinwheels I can upload when it comes in.

Thank you for the information! I did a little research and they have a digital advocacy day scheduled for April 28. I added it to future events and have started a draft troop post. I'll get a full draft soon and PM you the details if you wouldn't mind reviewing to see if you have any additional feedback.

THANK YOU!
