Verdin 24 Hour Give – Literacy for Life

Last Thursday we got to participate for the second time in giving 24 straight hours of video production to a selected non-profit organization in San Luis Obispo County. The organization chosen was the Literacy Council of San Luis Obispo who after a few hours into the give, changed their name to the much improved “Literacy for Life.”

Red CANARY produced 3 public service announcements in the 24 hour period that can be seen below:
