New Tumblr campaign encourages users to pass on positivity

Popular blogging and social networking site Tumblr has just launched a new campaign: Post It Forward. The scheme encourages users to post messages, stories, experiences and artwork – in fact anything at all – that they think could help someone get through a tough time.

Running through a dedicated Tumblr blog and aiming to promote through the hashtag¬†#PostItForward, Tumblr has also created a resource whereby users can create GIF files (that’s those moving pictures we love mom and dad) to help them express their messages of support.

There are a variety of ways that users can get involved – from posting messages of comfort to uplifting artworks to recounting their own stories of overcoming hardship.

Users can also download printable signs (like ours in the image below!) to write on and post on their varied social media accounts.
