The purpose of Shinola's Roll Up Our Sleeves campaign is to showcase the spirit of getting to work and getting the job done in communities across the globe. #TeamShinola is proudly made up of several people who regularly volunteer in the community, so we asked a few to share how they get involved. Watch their videos below and then it's your turn to share. Whoever you are and wherever you might be—we want to hear how you embody the #RollUpOurSleeves spirit.
Submit your stories on Instagram using the hashtags #RollUpOurSleeves and #Contest to be entered for a chance to win a watch and be featured on our site and social channels. Learn more about the contest official rules and how to submit, by clicking here.
