How to Share Your Thanks on Social Media

By expressing gratitude to our health care workers as they work tirelessly — and heroically — on the front line in the fight against this pandemic, we aim to let them know we are thinking of them and grateful for their selfless dedication during this worldwide crisis.

Share Your Thanks on Social Media

  • Take a photo of yourself with your message, and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, along with the hashtag #HealthCareHeroes.
  • Don’t forget to tag us, too @nysut.
  • And, include the name of your local union in the post, as well.

Tips for Sharing

  • Write a message of thanks and/or encouragement for health care workers on a note card and take a selfie with it. 
  • If you’re a parent who’s home with your children, have them write their own notes too. It’s a great way for them to practice their writing skills and their handwriting, as well.
  • Remember, once you’ve posted, tag us @nysut.
  • Get creative. Have fun. It’s simple message, but an important one. Let’s show our #HealthCareHeroes how much they mean to us.

Donating PPE

Many NYSUT local unions are working with their communities to collect and donate much-needed personal protective equipment for health care workers.

Check out our guidelines for PPE donations for more information.
