Instead of having a New Years resolution for 2012, I decided to instead challenge myself to help 12 non-profit organizations by doing a pro-bono video spotlight for a new group every month this coming year.
January showcases the work of the Engeye Scholars program, whose mission is to support the educational initiative of the Engeye Health Clinic and provide support to children living in and around Ddegeya Village, Uganda. For more information visit: www.engeyescholars.org
If you’re involved with a non-profit group or have any recommendations of organizations (in the Westchester/NYC area) that could really benefit from the creation of video content, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
