The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) is launching its new campaign Make Resources Count. By everyone sharing images of all the stuff they are fixing the EEB can send a message to the EU that repair activities are important, deserve more support and the EU can help make products more repairable.
To take part all you need to do is ...
Take a picture of something you have repaired over the past year
Upload it to Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #fixitselfie by 8 June 15
The Make Resources Count campaign will collect all the photos uploaded in this Storify story. The Storify will be sent to European decision-makers at the end of European Sustainable Development Week. A randomly selected photo from among those uploaded using the #fixitselfie hashtag will win a great prize, a full IFIXIT Pro Tech toolkit.

UPDATE: Wednesday June 10th 2015
I know I'm two days late from the deadline, but really wanted to share my #fixitselfie as am feeling incredibly smug about it. One of my favourite and oldest t-shirts had the elbows worn through. No fear! Navy corduroy elbow patches and pink stitching to the rescue! It's like having a whole new t-shirt. More repair, less waste!
