Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Poverty Resolutions has started a YouTube campaign to help spread awareness of issues related to global poverty, as well as give updates on their development work in Haiti. The nonprofit organization, located in the Philadelphia area, has set a goal to hit 300,000 views on their videos by Valentine’s Day. They call on viewers to “be a Valentine to someone living in poverty.” By watching, sharing, and spreading the word, viewers are able to contribute and raise awareness.
The videos produced by Poverty Resolutions play an integral role in fulfilling their mission of educating Americans about dollar-a-day poverty. Through their videos they hope to inspire others to get involved and make a difference for those in need.
Their main video, a documentary entitled 1 Dollar Poverty, follows four American men who live in Port-au-Prince after the 2010 earthquake for 28 days on one dollar a day per person. The documentary highlights the challenges faced by 54% of Haitians and over a billion people around the world who live on one dollar a day or less.
