Media Heroes

I think I’ve probably mentioned it before, but I love, love, love Hope International’s philosophical model of addressing poverty. Two phrases from their website express what they do well: “Share dignity. Support uncharity.” If you’re curious about Hope,their Uncharity site would be a great place to get acquainted.

I doubt that Kevin and Erin, my two guest speakers from Hope International would actually consider themselves media heroes, but I was blessed that they graciously took time out of their day to visit my class. After a semester of trying to encourage my students to use their growing communication skills, being able to hear from two communication professionals who work on behalf of social justice every day that they go to work was a wonderful opportunity for my students. I enjoyed seeing the students try to get a look behind the scenes during the question and answer time of class.  Since the LeapFwd campaign is seriously one of my all-time favorite fund-raising concepts, it was a double bonus for me to get to interact with the two people who came up with the brilliant origami that drives this video. I’m not sure how many times I’ve watched it, but I still enjoy everything about the LeapFwd concept and the way that it’s communicated.

I’ll leave you with access to it. I’m going to indulge in a little bit of quilt pattern organizing time, so I can go use my 50% off coupon at the PA Fabric Outlet tomorrow. Watch the video: I promise you it’s fun and thought-provoking.

  1. Jessica, This is a fantastic video clip. I sent it on to Stephen, Anna, and Rachel. You are right, it is not only a fantastic, easily doable idea, it is graphically well presented!
