You Can Make a Difference – Please Help

Readers of this blog will know that I volunteer at an organization called Venice Arts, helping young people express themselves through photography. Currently I mentor in an “Old School” photography class and teach black and white darkroom techniques to middle and high school age kids.

Readers will also know why this is so important to me.

Venice Arts is a community-based organization that provides media arts classes in story telling through photography, filmmaking, and comics. The classes are free to low-income kids, and they are a wonderful bunch of dedicated folks.

If they can get 1,000 subscriptions to their You Tube channel, You Tube will let them use their studios in Playa Vista complete with a green screen stage, production facilities, access to equipment and more. It will be a tremendous resource they can take advantage of, and will elevate the filmmaking classes to another level.

Please take a moment, go to:

and subscribe. It doesn’t cost anything but 30 seconds of your time, you won’t get any emails, you don’t even have to come back to watch any of the videos (but you should, they are doing amazing work), and will make a huge difference to many, many deserving young filmmakers.

Thank you.

About edcol52

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.
