New Site Aims to Be YouTube for Charities
FS: What is your vision for the site a few years down the road?
LGM: My vision for the site three to five years from now is that it will be the YouTube of philanthropy. Anyone who is thinking of donating will come to World Flix to view all of the new projects, check the status of projects they have already donated to and view archives of previously completed projects.
I also envision a thriving college internship program, where students are learning development, marketing and technology and also traveling around the world filming projects and teaching grassroots nonprofits how to film and upload video clips for themselves. Hopefully, those students will go on to work in philanthropy, or at the very least, remember to donate once they have gone on to be successful.
Organizations with projects that provide food, water, shelter, sanitation and/or health care and can be filmed and sustained with a microgrant of $5,000 or less are encouraged to submit a Video Project Proposal for consideration.
