Don’t whisper your story, shout it

No way I could resist checking out a company that calls itself Storytellers for Good. I first learned about them through a short video that had me crying from the start. The story of the founding of Mama Hope caught me from the first shots of Kenyan women and children, dancing and singing, but I was hopelessly engrossed when a young sponsored student began talking about the woman who gave him hope.

A link from there led to the stories4good YouTube channel. Curious about the video makers, I followed a link to Storytellers for Good. Their slogan rolls easily off the tongue: “Promoting goodness…inspiring greatness”.

In the best spirit of “show, don’t tell”, they promote their work—which is helping organizations tell their stories—by highlighting the stories they have created for clients. Links to their videos are the first thing that appears when you click on their home page.

Those wanting to dig behind the videos, to understand the company and how they approach clients’ stories can click on the News/Blog link.

This is a site that will inspire anyone wanting to tell a better story of a project or initiative, but it’s also a full-meal deal for anyone with an open heart and a love of a good story.

What a moving story – I just loved it but should have realized I would be leaving for school with red eyes after being moved by their attitude and warmth – just loved it! Thanks so much – it deserves more than 5 watches.
