#GivingTuesday Partner Creates #StrayProud Video Contest to Support #AmericanStrays Project
World Animal Awareness Society Helping Solve Nation’s Stray Dog Problem and Raise Awareness by Sponsoring Video Contest of Animals that used to be Stray, Giving Rescues and Shelters the Opportunity to Win Thousands!
By: World Animal Awareness Society - WA2S.org
In its new #StrayProud video contest, the WA2S is urging every dog rescue, shelter, and foster program to submit video of any stray they may have rescued in the last 2 years. Compelling, dramatic, humorous, and even sad stories told with video will have an opportunity to compete for over $22,000 in prizes, stated Front Street Public Relation's Cheryl Heppard.
The WA2S began accepting video submissions on Wednesday, November 20, 2013, and will close submissions Sunday, December 15, 2013 - with voting continuing on to December 31, 2013. Voting will begin as soon as a video is submitted and will include the most subscribers, most likes, most shares, most comments from unique users and most donations toward the American Strays Project. Early submissions do have an advantage as they can start garnering attention and votes as soon as the video submission is accepted and posted to the WA2S website.
Any posting of a picture or video about a stray dog must include the hashtag: #StrayProud to be eligible. “Every dog deserves to have a home,” said WA2S Executive Director Tom McPhee. “We’re helping build programs to solve the problems associated with stray Dogs.” The award-winning filmmaker is founder of the society that partners with hundreds of animal welfare organizations, NGOs and corporations to fulfill its mission.
The World Animal Awareness Society has documented many heroic post-disaster rescue missions including animal rescue efforts in Haiti’s earthquake-torn rubble, the Gulf of Mexico’s oily shores and Japan’s radiation zone.
The #StrayProud 2013 Video Contest is a fund-raiser for the research of American Strays Project science which will include 20 video lesson plans for middle school students created with the assistance of teachers using WA2S American Strays Project video. This contest will be hosted on the http://www.WA2S.org website.
