A video produced for the "donate responsibly" campaign has won a Webby Award from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.
The video was launched after Hurricane Sandy and using a variety of "origami shapes" underscores how far a dollar can go to help in a disaster. It was one of 10 honorees in the public service and activism category.
FEMA’s Voluntary Agency Liaison and Donations Management Section provided technical assistance for the ‘Donate Responsibly’ campaign. The tools produced by this project to help educate the public that the best donation during a disaster is cash to non-profit organizations, will help lessen the strain of unsolicited goods arriving in future disaster areas that could potentially be overwhelming. The video ‘Hard at Work’ that was part of this campaign, won an honorable mention Webby Award. Watch it Now.
