If there's one thing we enjoy here at Ivanti, it's hashtags. Just ask this year's Interchange attendees who took the #interchange18 hashtag and ran with it. They had their reasons—most of which involved a Twitter contest with awesome prizes to win—but hey, engagement is engagement. 

We've made some other hashtags Ivanti-famous, too, including #IvantiWebinars to promote all of our upcoming webinars, and #IvantiGoLive to showcase companies whose systems have gone live with our products. 

One of our most successful hashtags was part of the #MySuperPower campaign. Inspired by some of our fantastic women in tech, this campaign yielded hundreds of photo submissions from women all across the globe, each holding a sign with their strength written on it.

Now that the year is wrapping up, it's time to recreate the hashtag magic. Let's go out with a bang! Or a jingle bell, if you like.

Gifs for Gifts

Starting December 1st, we're inviting everyone with a Twitter account to tag @GoIvanti in a tweet with an IT or tech-related gif and use the hashtag #ITGifts. We will then match every gif we receive with a gift donation to a local children's hospital.

So in case your head is spinning like Rudolph after too much whiskey eggnog, you simply need to:

  • Have a Twitter account
  • Find an IT or technology-related gif you'd like to share
  • Write a caption for your gif
  • Tag @GoIvanti
  • Use the hashtag #ITGifts somewhere in the tweet

Example:

Questions you might be asking:

Q: Do I have to use a cat pun in my tweet?

A: No, but Santa Claws would approve.

Q: Can I tweet more than one gif for #ITGifts?

A: You can tweet as many times as you like, but we will only recognize one #ITGift tweet per Twitter account for the gift matching.

Q: When does the campaign start and end?

A: December 1 to December 20.

Q: What types of toys/clothing will be bought and where will they be donated?

A: Whoa, slow down Blitzen. We haven't even finished this blog yet, let alone made a list of the types of toys/clothing we will be getting. But we do know where we're donating to, and that's Primary Children's Hospital.  

Q: Can I invite non-Ivanti people to participate?

A: Everyone can participate!

But now I have a question for you, dear reader:

Q: Would you like to donate a gif this year?

Your answer: Yes!

At the end of the 20 days, we will do a recap blog of all the #ITGifts tweets we received, along with pictures of all the toys and clothing we'll be donating.

Here is one last example to help get your creative juices flowing (warning: more puns):
