Last year I was asked by a friend if I would be willing to make a pro bono video about an Atlanta non-profit called HouseProud. I immediately said yes, partly because a day or two earlier I had just learned about a really cool program a great guy I know put together called Advice For Good.
“The concept is simple: You donate at least an hour of your time to a non-profit or other charitable cause and then blog about your experience on this site, and in exchange you get to meet with one of our advisors.“
The list of advisors is really strong and I thought talking to a couple of them would be really beneficial for Workshoppers.org. So I agreed to the project and we got started with the video and I shot over a period of several months and as these things are ought to do, the project grew and the project changed and morphed and got better. Eventually, I had my friend Graham help me with the editing and I think the end result was a great video that really gets to the heart of what HouseProud is all about and showcases some of the real impact a small group of people can make in just a few hours.
I was honored to be tasked with making this story and humbled by the generosity of those that volunteer and genuinely moved by the grateful attitude of those people we are helping.
Watch this video and I guarantee you will be compelled to get out and help your fellow citizens.
