The Power of Community and Video to Make Dreams Come True
by Carlos Mireles
There are seldom times where three distinct worlds come together for one purpose and today is one of those days. With the advent of the internet, the world of video has had the pleasure of joining forces with the community and our dreams to present a piece containing not only information, but art, life and compassion.
Recently, Force Elementary School in Denver, Colorado entered a video competition for the opportunity to win funding for a community garden sponsored by Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, but was in need of having to submit a 2 minute video explaining the school’s garden plan. As it turned out we were at the right place at the right time to do a good deed. Annie Vassallo, the site director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver who oversaw the competition submission contacted us and explained their opportunity and dream. We were then very happy to volunteer for this great cause. We bit at the chance to give back to the community. The vision for the garden is for it to instill a greater sense of community bringing people together for the purpose of teaching and helping grow healthy and wholesome natural food.
This video presents the school’s benefits of having a community garden.
We at Blu Bambu Design hope to be able to participate in giving back and paying it forward to our communities so that our world can be a better place.
