Of course, we aren't used to being on stage or on screen, look at by others. Most of us prefer to be behind to in front of the camera. But what moves you? Catastrophe aid? Women's rights? Child protection?
And may your favourite charitable organisation be worth getting on camera for? Everyone has a story to tell. What is yours?
In 2012, the UN Foundation proclaimed Giving Tuesday, which marks the beginning of the Christmas season, as the day of giving. Black Friday is a day of wild shopping, and Thanksgiving has turned into a commercial event of one ad chasing the next. On Giving Tuesday, we want to give back. Over 30,000 organisations worldwide are on board.
We want to raise awareness to how well we are really doing in order to help the less fortunate. Everyone knows these noble ideas. With our video technology, we make it easier than ever for you to actually help. #givingtuesday #wedonate #weview
Helping one person does not change the world, but it does change that person's world.
Instead of donating yourself, you can now push others to do so with a short video you make. Shoot a quick take about your most cherished charity organisation and relate why you support them and why their issue moves you. Thanks to a prominent donation button in your video, users can now donate straight within the clip. Imagine someone sees a video of you presenting your charity. If this person can donate with a simple click just while watching, the likelihood of them ending up actually giving is high. Much higher than if they had to log into online banking first. Activating other people's money is much better than just giving your own. This way, you not only raise cash, but raise awareness for what moves you, too. We as supporters and givers of NGOs are, in fact, their very best fundraisers. This is what makes a sharing economy. Countless NGOs and celebs support us already.
A simple clip does the job.
If you record a quick video in which you tell us about a charity you support, we'll do the rest. One minute is enough. You create an account and upload the video to our video platform. After, you provide a few simple infos such as the title, the thumbnail and the link to where donating happens. We connect the link to the donation button in the video. This way, viewers can donate straight after watching. No strings attached, no costs for you.
Shoot a short, strong video.
Upload to weview and link to a charity organization.
weview's Leopold campaigns to support medical staff in Congo. Our head of finance, Jakob, is active for Pulse of Europe. Our designer Viviane fights for animal rights. We are a company focused on shopping throughout the whole year. People see product reviews filmed by others on our platform, videos from which they can then buy the products straight away. Doesn't our simple technology offer itself to motivate people to donate? Our review videos turn into charity videos now. The buy-button becomes the donation-button. Of course, we don't make any profit from this. It's out contribution to Giving Tuesday. There are so many videos out there - Make one that matters.
