  • Use the Give Kids A Smile hashtag: #GKAS

Why use the hashtag? Hashtags allow people to see all the conversations around a particular topic. Using the #GKAS hashtag will help increase your reach and allow other people to see your content. And remember, social media is a two-way street! You can (and should) engage with others using the #GKAS hashtag. Hashtags are primarily used on Twitter and Instagram.

  • Share your #GKAS story!

Share your event information, quotes, videos, and pictures. Be sure to tag Give Kids A Smile on Facebook!

Find ideas for social media posts in the document GKAS and Missions of Mercy Social Media Posts (PDF), located in the GKAS Program Planning Toolbox.

A note on photography: Please help the ADA Foundation tell the GKAS story by providing us with some photos and video from your program! Be sure to get a signed photo permissions form (the link will open a Word document) that names the ADA Foundation and the ADA as permitted users of your photos, and provide those photos to the ADA Foundation after your event. Please be sure that the dental team members are wearing appropriate gloves, masks, long sleeves, and protective eyewear, and wristwatches are removed, even if care is not being provided at that particular moment.
