Congratulations to the recipients of the Eighth Annual DoGooder Video Awards! They were announced last week on Thursday, March 13 at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, D.C.
The DoGooder Awards recognize the creative and effective use of video to promote social causes. Cause video has a clear role to play in advancing social change and creating real impact. Every day organizations and causes tell stories through video that have the power to move people and transform lives. Watch all four winning videos below.
"Right By You" from Partners for Mental Health This 30-second video shows why we need to do more to end tragedies like youth suicide.
"Nutiquette: A Dude’s Guide to Checking His Nuts" from Canadian Cancer Society Viewers enjoy a catchy tune as they learn the steps of checking for testicular cancer.
