About the BuddyChallenge

On April 28th, we are encouraging participants to record an Instagram reel and/or TikTok and share it on their social media accounts using the hashtags #BuddyChallenge and #SolarBuddy. The video should start with a mention and acknowledgement of SolarBuddy, followed by an invitation to three friends to join the challenge and a positive message for them or the children.

We have provided some tips and recommendations to ensure the success of the BuddyChallenge, including framing and lighting suggestions, as well as recommended phone settings. We encourage participants to film the reel with their phone's rear camera to ensure readability of written words.

By joining the BuddyChallenge, you will be helping us to give the gift of light and create a brighter future for children affected by energy poverty. We can’t wait to see your creativity in action!
