Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an international non-profit organization founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live, regardless of race or religion. Through volunteer labour and donations, Habitat provides the greatest gift we can provide for other human beings, a home.
Anneke Rees from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Vancouver chose to work with us after seeing some of our stories featured in the Volunteer Vancouver awards ceremonies. They needed a video piece that would be used to increase awareness and attract volunteers, supporters and donations.
Before and during the World Urban Forum Week in Vancouver we interviewed volunteers and visitors and gathered footage of international spokespeople and political figures who spoke about Habitat.
We also interviewed owners of new homes at a local Habitat for Humanity project who were elated to be part of the program.
We combined these video pieces and edited them into an awareness/promotional video that showcased how the local Habitat chapter worked to bring homes to those that could not have otherwise afford it.
Feedback from viewers after having seen the piece has been extremely supportive of the cause.
