What’s an account takeover? An account takeover is when you give access to someone to create content for a certain period of time on your social media page. This usually lasts for a day.
Why? The purpose of an account takeover for Metalsmiths for Change is to end Black History Month on a positive note and to help amplify the Black Metalsmiths Virtual Marketplace, which is intended to support Black jewelry designers and organizations that benefit Black communities.
When? Mon, Feb. 28th
Where? Primarily IG, but sharing anywhere you can is extremely helpful towards the success of this small initiative.
How can I participate? For the entire day on February 28, change the link in your Instagram bio to the link to shop the marketplace. Choose a photo below to save and post using the caption below.
Caption: Today, I join forces with others who want to show our support for Metalsmiths for Change @metalsmithsforchange, an organization that exists to advocate for racial and social justice through collaboration and to provide equitable opportunities for Black artists.
Their Black Metalsmiths Virtual Marketplace is an ongoing marketplace where Black jewelry designers profit from each sale, and 20% of proceeds benefit organizations that support and uplift Black communities. February’s proceeds benefit No More Secrets @nomoresecretsmbs and The Marsha P. Johnson Institute @mpjinstitute. Today is the last day to support these organizations through the marketplace. There’s a link in my bio to shop directly.
