The Friendship Bridge | Fundraising Documentaries
Friendship Bridge is a nonprofit organization that provides microcredit loans and education to Mayan women of Guatemala that help empower them to build a better life for themselves and their families. When we first began working with them, they were using Powerpoint at their annual fundraising auctions to explain what they do. We met with the board of directors with the idea of creating videos that would bring their audience to Guatemala and into the lives of these women - showing their challenges, and how Friendship Bridge helps overcome them. We created Across the Bridge - A Journey to Guatemala. It became such a huge fundraising success for them that they later commissioned us to create a second video - which we named Poverty Meets Hope.
