#MindYourSelfie Day 2017


This year we launched our new School Resource Packs on #MindYourSelfie Day (31st March). We were blown away by the support and feedback from schools for this initiative.
As some of you are aware, on #MindYourSelfie Day we held a social media campaign to promote the new packs and this year #MindYourSelfie went round the world. Tweets and Instagram posts came from Canada, USA, Brazil, Argentina, Algeria, from Spain, Portugal, Poland, Sweden, Greece, Serbia, Belgium, Denmark, Russia, India, and Germany, from France, from Australia and Italy and Thailand.
We saw Adam Clayton, Dustin the Turkey, Jenny Greene, Nicky Byrne, Steve (Kodaline), Blathnaid Treacy, Maura Derrane, Anna Geary, Aisling Daly, Helen McEntee all tweet or Instagram their selfies to show their support for the campaign.
We also asked Schools to upload their ‘School Selfies’ to their schools social media accounts and Walk in My Shoes selected the winning schools. The following schools were selected and won a €50 One-4-All voucher for their school… well done to all:

  • Gaelcholáiste Mhuire AG, North Monastery Road, Cork
  • Scoil Chill Ruadhain, Brooklodge, Glanmire, Co. Cork.
  • Lumcloon NS, Cloghan Birr Co. Offaly

The #MindYourSelfie Resource packs have been downloaded over 3,000 times in 6 weeks and our Mindfulness Podcasts have been downloaded over 6,000 times.

Thank you to all who have used these resources!
