Get Social. Use your social media networks: post on Facebook, Instagram, and tweet about the event- remember to use the hashtag #BowOnPoe, and share your UB love. Ask others to do the same. It’s a great opportunity to use social media for good!

We know that the possibilities are limitless when thousands of us all come together. How much bigger can we make UB’s #BowOnPoe this year? How many bows will be collectively put on Poe? Remember each gift equals a bow on the Edgar Allan Poe statue on Gordon Plaza so that everyone can see the generosity of the UB community.
