Health Awareness through YouTube

February 8, 2010

On 4 February, YouTube launched a health awareness round on their Video volunteers Chanel to mark World Cancer Day.  Through the initiative, anyone can make/upload up to three minute long videos promoting a chosen health organization’s work.The three most popular videos will be featured on the YouTube Homepage at the end of the month, offering a unique chance at global visibility. Thus far, non-profits such as Face AIDS and HopePhones have joined in to raise awareness for their cause. One can support health organizations by viewing their videos on the Volunteer Channel, or by uploading new videos for other health non-profits by the 23rd of this month.

Below, spokesperson Jesse McCartney tells more about the project and speaks for the project’s non-profit partner Stand up to Cancer.
