Give a smile

On 7th February 2017 we encouraged everyone to make the internet a better place and #giveasmile for Safer Internet Day!

Schools, organisations and individuals across the UK to 'Be the Change' and help make the internet smile by posting a smiley selfie or emoji!

How to get involved

Whether it’s a positive message in our specially designed emoji, a post filled with smiling emojis, or something more creative, there are lots of ways you can get involved in the #giveasmile campaign. You can:

  • Fill our #giveasmile template with your own message and share it on social media: We’ve created our own emoji templates which can be filled with tips and advice for creating a better internet or with positive comments. Download our emoji template here in colour or greyscale. You can also download it here in Welsh. 
  • Post a selfie of you smiling, or smiling with someone else and send it someone to make them smile!
  • Get creative and make your own emoji out of anything you want, including objects and people!
  • Post a smiley emoji on social media to show your support for Safer Internet Day

Along with your image, video or boomerang post this message:

This Safer Internet Day I #giveasmile to make the
internet a better place! http://bit.ly/SID2017UK
@UK_SIC #SID2017”
