Thank You for Participating in Open Sharing Is Caring!

Open Culture

February is usually the time to share virtual hugs, chocolates, and witty cards with family and friends for Valentine’s Day ❤️. (Or “Friend’s Day” in Finland!) This past Valentine’s Day, we wanted you to share something a little different: your creative work. 

In our Open Sharing is Caring challenge, we asked you to openly share an image, song, artwork, research paper, poem, GIF…whatever it may be with the world by gifting it to the public domain. By using #OpenSharingIsCaring on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, we watched as you generously gave to the public domain.

In this post, we’re sharing five of our favorite images!

Finally, we received a few touching and witty poems via email for Valentine’s Day. One of our favorites was shared by Lisanne.
