We here at Lights. Camera. Help are about to do something pretty exciting.  With the help of Groupon Grassroots, the philanthropic arm of Groupon, we’ve launged a campaign to provide as many Central Texas nonprofits as we can with free, hands-on video training.  Groupon Grassroots will provide an online location where its subscribers can donate directly to our campaign.

Our training will give the recipients useful tips for DIY filmmaking and it will help them get the best return on their video possible.  From April 30-May 6th Groupon subscribers can donate to our campaign in $10 increments.  Your $10 investment will help our participants express their stories through video in a way that is both effective and more likely to yield positive results.  The first two nonprofits to receive a spot in our class will be the Sustainable Food Center and Austin Involved, but for every $200 we raise after our tipping point we will add another nonprofit to our class!  Please see our campaign link here and follow us on Twitter for more information.
