Raising money to produce a documentary series showing the life of Unpaid Caregivers, caring for a loved one; money used for creation, distribution of the documentary about unpaid #caregivers
Did you know? Since 2011, every day 10,000 people turn 65.
40 million Americans are doing selfless work by serving as an unpaid family caregiver for a loved one.
25% of those Caregivers are millennials, who often feel forced to choose between their careers and caring for their aging parents & grandparents.
For the past year, I have been self-funding a podcast (audio) about Caregivers (called #caregiversstories) and learned that there are more people out like me. Every time I release an episode, the feedback I get from my friends, colleagues, and strangers that reach out to me to tell me they are or have, gone through, something similar.
After watching the Ways & Means Committee on Elderly Care (November 14, 2019), I started documenting my story to create a documentary series on #caregiversstories to build awareness, educate and brand a charity that is giving services to caregivers that go unpaid. 1st series called #NoRegrets Caregiver Stories which I am asking for assistance to get it produced.
Then March 18, 2020, I decided to self-fund, Do As We Do in the case larger corporations that might want to become donors now, instead of later.
This non-profit is a "100% Model," where private donors fund our operating costs and 100% of the contributions to will go straight to the caregivers in need of services and help.
Help is still needed:
Finding strong local partners on the ground to build and maintain services and caregiving efforts.
Creating an infrastructure for the non-profit.
Continuing to create compelling Images and Storytelling takes which requires talented and creative people that are passionate about caregiving.
Posting each story to YouTube and sharing snips of each on all other channels to cross-promote and build awareness for Generation Y and Z so they can be proactive and start the tough convo with their parents.
Hence the importance of multi-channel distribution to build awareness of the documentary the nonprofit. We will use Facebook. LinkedIn. Snapchat. TikTok. YouTube. Twitter. Pinterest. Podcasting.
