Raise Your Hand for Kids this Election Season

It’s election season, and candidates for elected office are ramping up their campaigns. You can help raise critical kids’ issues with this guide to asking candidates questions online and in person.

How to Ask a Question on Facebook

Facebook is one of the most popular sources for news and a great way to stay in communication with friends, family – and presidential candidates. It’s also a terrific forum to begin a conversation about issues you care about. Engaging with presidential candidates on Facebook is another way your voice can be heard. Sending candidates a message containing a question or posting your question to their wall are two easy ways to share your questions about how candidates will invest in kids. Also encourage your friends and family to contact the candidates!

Be sure to tag people in your posts, and use hashtags when appropriate, such as: #High5forKids, #InvestInKids, #EarlyEd and #SaveMomsandKids.
