I have a short video project I want to put together regarding our kids who
would benefit from the passing of the Cogswell-Macy Act. This video will
portray the DeafBlind kids aspect (Title III) of this Act. I'm hoping to make
it very short, 30-60 seconds with the goal of getting many likes and at least a
thousand shares, sharing it far and wide to increase awareness and advocacy for
I need photos and very short video clips of families with their (birth to 21)
DeafBlind child (who's at the center of it all!)
I am also interested in using photos or videos of your DeafBlind child actively
working with his/her intervener and/or Teacher of the DeafBlind.
Deadline for submission is February 22, 2016.
This will give me a week to put it together in time for our family and friends
participating in the First Capitol Hill DeafBlind Advocacy Day (March 2, 2016
in Washington, DC).
Please e-mail your media files to me at skytasio@xxxxxxxxx with your child's
name and your family name. Names will be added in the end credits (example:
Orion and the Withrow Family).
Examples can be seen at this link:
