Living Philanthropic enters contest to turn blog’s mission of volunteerism into web series

(Editor's note: Through his blog, a BlogBeat partner of Latina Lista, Carlo Garcia has dedicated his writings to highlighting the rewards of volunteerism by spotlighting worthy causes and non-profits. He now has the opportunity to take his great idea even farther.)

 

The Idea

The Living Philanthropic Project: a new web series highlighting the joys of giving back through volunteerism. The goal is to produce 12 episodes highlighting a different non-profit organization each week as the host interacts with the organization and tells their story.

The Specifics

The funds would go directly to renting the equipment and paying the crew to help film and produce 12 episodes of The Living Philanthropic Project. The videos would then be hosted on Vimeo & Youtube and provided for free usage to the organizations to help promote their cause.

Creating content can be challenging for some non-profits working on a limited budget. The Living Philanthropic Project hopes to provide high quality videos that help tell the story and inspire action through action.

Please share a vote and a tweet or like if you believe in the power of volunteerism.

Deadline for voting is April 17, 2012.
