NAPOCares is an on-going initiative to promote how NAPO members give back to their communities each and every day either professionally or personally by sharing their time, treasures and/or talents with their local community. This includes:
- Promotion on social media of community outreach activities that NAPO members complete
- Annual promotion of GO Month activities each January.
- Annual fundraising at the NAPO Annual Conference for a local nonprofit in the host city
How Can You Participate?
1. Post on social media and use the hashtag #NAPOCares
whenever you give back to your community either personally or professionally. Not only will this spread the word that NAPOCares but it will also give you additional, free visibility on social media. See below under Social Media Posting Guidelines for more details.
Whenever you see other NAPOCares social media posts with #NAPOCares and/or @NAPOPro, please like, share, etc., to spread the word!
3. Write a Blog

Blog Posting Guidelines and Tips
Prior to submitting a blog, review the full submission guidelines
.Submit a blog
via the NAPO website about your Community Service event for consideration! Blog posts are approximately 500 words and should be more of an overview, not a fully comprehensive "article".
Once a blog is submitted for consideration, it will be reviewed for content. If your submission is chosen for posting, you will be contacted via the email you submitted with your content. At that time you will be able to send your headshot for the byline and an image (or two) that relate to your topic (if one is not provided, a stock image may be used). If you submit a group photo, please identify those pictured.
