Videos and pictures are what organizations need to tell their stories. Reading has been reduced to informational highlights about a photograph or as a lead-in to a video.
Visit our Impact Library and watch other organizations’ videos for inspiration. Not every video needs to be an elaborate or expensive undertaking. Using only your smart phone you can produce a quality video. (It’s just as easy as the “home movies” you make and share with family and friends.)
We hope you will share your compelling video stories about how your organization is making a long term difference in our community. You may email a file or a link to Jayne Evans.
