We are looking for sponsors!

You’re a business or individual. You’re constantly bombarded by sponsorship requests. You want to give back to the community and do some good in the world, but you’re not quite sure how your sponsorship dollars really give you exposure or what the results are from your involvement. How do you choose to sponsor one charity from another?

Video is powerful stuff. It engages an audience, pulls them in emotionally through experiencing life in someone else’s shoes, and voila, advocates are born. Our success begins at our yearly kick-off event with Reel to Reality on March 4th, which begins the film submission period for the year. Sponsorship dollars to LCH is the beginning of a trickle down wave of goodwill that results in real impact on the ground. In 2009, Art From the Streets, an organization that empowers homeless individuals, received $1,000 as the featured non-profit in the winning film. This $1,000 prize money bought 40 people arts supplies for 4 months!

In 2010, 235 documentaries, PSAs, and short films were submitted from all over the world. Below is one of the three films that won the Jury Prize for 2010.

We hope that you can join us in working to empower cause driven organizations! We believe in long term relationships and sponsorship means you are featured all year long. Ready to jump on board?
