For 15 years + my producing partner and I have created advertising and television for some of the world's top brands and tv networks. We have worked in LA, NYC, and all over the globe selling watches, cars, celebrity fashion, and reality TV competitions.
In our spare time, we have tried to volunteer our talents to visit and shoot films for nonprofit organizations who are effective and yet off-the-radar of most donors. What we have seen, time and time again, is that the "little guys" - the small organizations and individuals- are doing incredibly transformative work
on very little money.We believe we can make a huge difference in the scale and ability of these proven organizations to help others by telling their stories and marketing their work to a new donor base. And we have already been busy
- visiting 4 nonprofits in the last 2 years. We have produced one campaign, raised money for Nepal after the earthquake, and have three more campaigns in the pipeline. We have also seen results. In the past decade of volunteering, an orphanage has been built. Families have been re-housed after losing everything in disaster. A budget shortfall was eliminated in caring for young teen mothers.
WE NORMALLY FOCUS OUR CAMERAS ON OTHERS - NOT OURSELVES.
BUT IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TELLING THEIR STORIES, WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Our experience has shown that every dollar we spend on telling the stories of these organizations come back 2x and 3x over in fundraising for these organizations. It's a great investment in those doing extraordinary good in the world.
All donations are 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE in the USA. Thank-you!
Here-Is-Why is a project of Empowerment Works, a 501c3 registered nonprofit in the United States.
For Suzy and myself, this is our life's work. We love the beautiful people we have met in Tanzania, Guatemala, India, Nepal and dozens of other countries. Many have never had their voices heard... and yet they live incredibly inspiring lives. They conquer poverty, conflict and disease every day- and we are thrilled to know them and call them our friends and heros.Will you help us by supporting our work to continue telling stories about the great work that change-making organizations are doing around the world?
Thank-you so much. For more info on who we are and to see some of our photos and video, please visit:hereiswhy.org
