Philadelphia DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards: nonprofits vie for $250K in the ‘largest skilled volunteer program in Philly’s history’

Organized by Center City socially-minded marketing agency Here’s My Chance, the Philadelphia DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards is an ambitious effort to help local nonprofits get better at “telling their stories” — essentially, getting the word out so they can rally support. Ninety nonprofits are competing in the video awards, vying for $250,000 worth of resources.

Someone said to me today that brig vulnerable is a gift and it speaks to your strengths. And while being this way scares the shit out of me, this is why I do it. For #socialimpact. I could never tap into my strengths if things like the #PhillyDoGooder Awards did exist. I am so very thankful to @HeresMyChance for this opportunity to create a video that may hopefully help change the world. And I am even more grateful to be a finalist. Thank You. #YCenter #creatingchange (at Hamilton Hall - University of the Arts)

Friend, great leader, and my former Company Commander @DavidGloss … shown here about to yell at me (2001). He mentored me through my plebe year at VF (age 11), was captain and valedictorian by the time he left, and now he’s a #PhillyDoGooder and continuing to empower people through his organization @HeresMyChance. Our Alma Mater, Valley Forge Military Academy is honoring him as their guest chapel speaker for tomorrow’s sermon about ‘perseverance’. I couldn’t think of a better word to describe Dave. Chapel starts at 10am. Don’t be late. (1001 Eagle Rd, Wayne PA)
