End of Summer Instagram Challenge

We thought Friendship Week would be a good week to bring back our #holdersnotfolders Instagram challenge! If you have never joined in on one of our Instagram challenges or have no idea what we are talking about, you can read more about the history here! Holders Not Folders is a community that Megs & I started of Instagramers who grow, stretch, learn, live, share, experience, comfort, and love. The idea behind the name is that we HOLD onto each other and do not FOLD into ourselves. It is choosing community over isolation. With 5500+ photos posted, we want you to invite you to be a part of the community. We want to gram with you through the end of summer (the next 9 weeks) because that is what friends do! #freindswhogramtogetherstaytogether

Our first challenge starting today is FRIENDSHIP – fitting huh? We want to see those relationships in your life that you cherish! But we also want you to be creative about it! This is an Instagram challenge meaning we want to see you push yourself to share your world in a new way and we want you to connect with others in the #holdersnotfolders community. While it may be tempting to post a point and shoot photo of you and your bff smiling at the camera (and we still love those shots), we want you to think bigger and get your creativity on (or your crazy on!)

Take your time to post thought out and curated images on your Instagram! Use your Instagram feed to tell a virtual story! If you missed our last Holders Not Folders challenge (or even if you didn’t), you might want to freshen up on what we covered as you challenge yourself this summer!
