Drop Labels is a upcoming social media campaign using videos to share personal stories of individuals discussing a particular label that has impacted their life. At the end of every video, the filmed individual asks for their friends to upload their personal videos on DropLabels.Org to start a viral movement. They are also working with nonprofits to share stories of those that receive service, and in return, they share information about the nonprofits that participate – such as sharing links for donations, information, and or resources. Their end goal, is to bring awareness to labels and reduce prejudice and stigmas. Furthermore, to also share information about nonprofits that work to bring communities together and assist with reducing discrimination, along with increasing their donations and support.
