Sharing what you care about on a photo… you can get a Fairphone 3


Información disponible en español

Celebrate with us the #BankingOnValues Day, which stresses the need to use money and banks to improve people’s quality of life and preserve the planet. While you help us to spread this transformative idea on social media, you could win a Fairphone 3 and experience the phone that cares about the people and planet.

You just have to publish a selfie with something/somebody you care about (local nature, social initiative, cultural good, historical wealth, people who is important for you…).

Post the photograph/s from the 1st to the 10th of November on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BankingOnValues, describing the image and saying where you are.

For example, a photo of you in Vancouver with your grandmother:

Because I care about adequate care for the elderly in Vancouver, I choose #BankingOnValues.

The author(s) of the selected best image(s) will get a Fairphone 3 as recognition for his/her contribution.
