Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Two-time Emmy and 26-time Telly award-winning Salt & Light Productions® has produced a short-form documentary for ShelterBox USA, an international disaster relief charity whose mission is to provide shelter, warmth and dignity to disaster survivors worldwide.
ShelterBox, whose U.S. affiliate—ShelterBox USA is located in Sarasota, Fla., instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid. Each iconic green ShelterBox contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, stove, blankets and water filtration system, among other tools to help a family survive the immediate aftermath and begin to rebuild their lives.
A core program service of the Center for Faith and Freedom®, Salt & Light Productions® produces issue-based documentaries that support educational and religious institutions, non-profit organizations and the government by creating multi-media presentations that enlightens the public on the special needs of the hurting, less fortunate and sometimes overlooked members of society.
“We are extremely honored to have the support of the Center and the Salt & Light team,” said Emily Sperling, ShelterBox USA president. “This documentary shines light on the needs of disaster survivors and the work of ShelterBox to provide shelter, warmth and dignity in the immediate aftermath.”
She added, “With the team’s help, we’ll continue to raise awareness about our life-saving mission, ensuring we can continue to serve the world’s most vulnerable families.”
