Pathfinder’s No Joke Video Wins 2013 DoGooder Video Award
Pathfinder is pleased to announce that our “No Joke. Choice Matters” video won the 2013 DoGooder “Funny for Good” Video Award today. Presented by See3Communications, YouTube, the NonProfit Technology Network, and supported by Cisco, the award recognizes the creative and effective use of video in promoting social good.
As an award recipient, Pathfinder will receive $3,500 generously donated by Cisco and free registration to the 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference. In addition, “No Joke. Choice Matters.” will be featured on the YouTube spotlight channel.
“We were thrilled to have our video as one of the four finalists—and winning just put us over the moon,” said Jaime-Alexis Fowler, Pathfinder’s Associate Director of Public Relations and Online Communications. “We take reproductive health care for women very seriously. It’s no joke that women have to deal with serious barriers to reproductive health care, but presenting it in a funny way makes these challenges more easily understandable and inspires people to take action. This video has helped us get the message out that no woman should have to face these barriers.”
Pathfinder is honored to win, and pleased that the award will bring greater attention and support to international sexual and reproductive health care.
In the seven years of the contest, the DoGooder Video Awards has awarded thousands of dollars in grants and prizes to support the work of organizations doing good. Last year, 1,200 entries were submitted from more than 600 nonprofit organizations.
