Children’s illustration competition launches for ‘TAP Book of Thanks’ recognising COVID-19’s unsung heroes.
TAP (Thank And Praise) is bringing to life the inspiring messages of thanks on its Digital Thanking Wall as a lasting legacy to the nation’s essential workers.
TAP (Thank And Praise), a unique social thanking platform, responded to the COVID-19 crisis by creating a Digital Thanking Wall to enable the public to post messages of appreciation to the nation’s courageous and selfless workers, in particular those in in healthcare/NHS and education.
Following an outpouring of gratitude across the UK, TAP has received nearly a 1,000 personal messages of thanks which have been viewed over 700,000 times on its website and social media channels.
“There are so many inspiring and personal stories from the crisis that we want to capture them in a ‘TAP Book of Thanks’. That’s why we’ve launched a children’s illustration competition in order to bring to life the messages of thanks we’ve received on our Digital Thanking Wall”, said Matt Findel-Hawkins, CEO of TAP.
TAP is inviting children to read the messages on TAP’s Digital Thanking Wall to get inspired and then upload their pictures via https://www.thankandpraise.com/competition. The illustrations received will be shared on TAP’s social media channels as well as the chance of appearing in the “TAP Book of Thanks”.
TAP’s judging panel, comprising of Sandie Curtis (TAP Founder), Matt Findel-Hawkins (TAP CEO) and Kerry Hill (Headteacher at Eyres Monsell Primary School), will select the illustrations for the ‘TAP Book of Thanks’ within three age categories; under 8s, under 11s and under 16s.
The ‘TAP Book of Thanks’ will be available on TAP’s website and sent to the healthcare/NHS and education organisations thanked on the Digital Thanking Wall.
TAP wants to provide a meaningful way for the younger generations to support our essential workers and learn about the key role they have in our communities.
