“This video shows that no matter what the size of an organization, big ideas can lead to significant change” was the announcement made by the awards committee for the 2012 DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards. The Story of Cholera won in the Fearless Video category, sponsored by the Case Foundation, where four winners were selected from over 1,000 video submissions. The animation was said to be “a compelling and original demonstration of the great role cause video plays in advancing social change and creating real social impact.” The award includes a grant of $2,500 from the Case Foundation.
The Story of Cholera, released in December, has been seen in over 130 countries. Now narrated in Haitian Creole, it is being used in educational programs in Haiti in advance of the rainy season.
