#SpreadFactsNotFear with the IFRC

A VPN is an essential component of IT security, whether you’re just starting a business or are already up and running. Most business interactions and transactions happen online and VPN

I have been framing images again, this time in support of an important cause. This picture of a framed heart is one I took in support of the #SpreadFactsNotFear campaign that’s been organised by the International Federation of the Red Cross and Crescent (IFRC).

A picture I took in support of the IFRC’s #SpreadfactsNotFear campaign

I originally posted it on Instagram, plus an origami video on TikTok, but I felt the message behind the campaign is so important that I’d share on the blog as well. I’ll explain what it’s all about.

I was asked to share an image of a heart, because it’s the internationally recognised symbol of kindness and compassion. The specific aim of #SpreadFactsNotFear, however, is to combat the spread of dubious posts being written about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on social media.

This is the first in a series of images I’ll be taking as part of the IFRC’s initiative. I’m working on the second one already and will be posting it to my Instagram feed in the near future.

The picture itself was very easy to take. It’s simply a cardboard cut out of a heart that I hung from a picture frame. How I hung the heart, well that will remain a secret!

You can probably guess that I took the picture during one of our daily walks. After a bit of experimentation, I placed the frame so that some the greenery was growing around the edge of the frame.

It was a bit of fun, albeit in support of an important cause. Please leave me a comment, especially if you have something to say about questionable information that is circulating on social media. Do also take a look at the #SpreadFactsNotfear hashtag on social media.

Finally, a quick note for any bloggers or keen photographers reading this. I have added this image to the weekly #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by Darren Coleshill on his Photalife blog. Do follow this link and pay it a visit to check out Darren’s imagery and photography taken by other bloggers.

  1. Powerful image, and it sounds like a worthwhile cause. I’ve tried to stay well clear of any news about the whole situation otherwise it becomes too much.

    Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

  2. What a great image and a great message. There is so much ‘information’ circulating at the moment, it’s very hard to know what to believe. I tend to place my trust in the BBC, but I know some people don’t even trust them!

  3. A lovely image and an important message to be sharing. i take everything I read on SM with a pinch of salt and do a lot more research before passing judgement on any subject, sadly it seems I follow and am friends with a lot of people who think everything any media says must be true #mysundayphotos
