With 100 hours of video being uploaded to YouTube every minute, is it even worth putting in the time to produce a film and upload to YouTube? Why would anyone take the time to watch my videos with the plethora of cat clips, challenge videos, vlogs or extreme pranks? Because … I’m filling a gap.
Welcome to VidCause:
I’m excited to announce the launch of my YouTube channel VidCause (Videos for a Cause). On this channel I highlight a variety of nonprofit organizations that are making a difference around the world. I will be donating 50% of the advertising revenue from each video directly to these charities.
My goal for VidCause is simple: #SpreadTheCause.
I want to spread the word and make others aware of the incredible work that so many charities are doing today. The films I create are short clips that 1) tell a story, 2) explain about the organization, & 3) include a call-to-action.
It’s NOT about the money:
While the financial donation resulting from these films will be minimal, my primary focus is to create positive publicity about organizations making an impact in the lives of others. The 50-50 split is designed to provide a small financial donation to the each charities and the remaining 50% going to cover the production costs associated with each video.
What’s Coming Up?
I’ve already had the chance to work with some great charities in the production of my next few videos. I’m eager to feature many more and certainly value any suggestions, please send a message to VidCauseBusiness@gmail.com.
As someone who spends more time than I should watching YouTube videos, my hope is that VidCause will help fill a gap within the current content being uploaded. By placing a greater emphasis on social good, I hope to help mobilize others to take action and #SpreadTheCause
The slogan of VidCause is adapted from 1 Peter 2:17 and is a personal mission that I hope many others will choose to embody. Respect Everyone. Love your Family. Honor God.
