Project: Lights! Camera! Spotlight!
This Spring Team Water plans to produce a 2-minute promotional video highlighting key aspects of the non-profit organization, Love is the Answer – LITA – and its mission. By developing the promotional video, our hope is to generate additional visibility for the LITA organization and more specifically, to encourage volunteerism, individual service to the community through LITA’s important programs and perhaps to encourage individual and corporate sponsorship of the programs through monetary and donations in kind.
