Funding Community-authored Television by Learning from KarmaTube.org

This morning I was reflecting...flowing energy... on how I could further communicate the power of the new television to facilitate positive social change, when BINGO!!... a new friend of mine sends me an e-mail about KarmaTube.org with just the right messaging needed. KarmaTube.org is a simple site with a simple idea, create good Karma by producing marvelous content that tells a compelling human story about the impact that small acts of kindness and caring can make in young people's lives, as they develop into tomorrow's leaders... with the same thing on their minds and in their hearts. 

The trailer for the Jennifer Arnold film, a Small Act wonderfully communicates that. Now my thoughts are on how content like this can be crafted to support domestic community-authored television right here in the U.S.  that uplifts communities right here. One message is to keep it simple and the other is make the content as elegant and as inspirational as the people your story talks about.

In the last few years, I have been fortunate to be able to work with at-risk, court-involved, youth of color, mentoring them, and teaching them how to craft and tell their own stories using the new television, but initiatives have been stalled due to lack of funding, and budget cuts across multiple government agencies, but perhaps communicating this idea to a broader audience by leveraging the power of the new television and can garner more support. 

Let's connect and discuss if you like and understand where I am going with this 425-780-6872
