Youtube launches Video Volunteers

Wow, I just discovered Youtube's latest initiative Video Volunteers. 

Youtube has launched this new channel which connects non-profit orgs with its hundreds and thousands of videomakers to produce videos for worthy causes. It has built the widget below (sorry just an image, I'm having trouble imbedding it in my blog) that lists videomaking volunteer opportunities from,, and volunteer match.

First thoughts: Incredible. I look forward to following this and seeing the videos that are produced from this new partnership.

However, browsing quickly through the comments it seems that many Youtubers are unsure exactly in what ways they can help and it looks like it will take a rather sophisticated video maker to do the job...

Hmm something to definitely watch and see how it grows...

My dear Megumi,
I have just left Burma for the UK and so can finally read your blog again - it is wonderful to read developments and be with internet fast enough to watch some of the movies you recommend ! ! Hoping all is well with you there - here I have a week in the UK before heading to South Africa to do a diploma in humanitarian assistance before going to Berkeley for Grad School ! ! In between have met a lot of Rotarians - really feel a part of the Rotary family.
Much love to you in Tokyo my dear - becky
