Job Description

Description of work:

I need the following recorded for my charity that works with kids from alcoholic homes. I need a strong male voice that can sound a bit angry, a bit sad, and mostly hopeful at the same time.

We are using the on our web site and posted to social networking sites as a way to build awareness for our cause and to solicit donations.

This comes to about 2 minutes recorded.

Script:

What the hell are you waiting for? What's it gonna take to get you to do something - anything - to help kids that came up just like you. Do you remember growing up with mom passed out drunk on the couch? Remember what it felt like when dad came staggering home from the bar and looked to take it out on you or your brother or sister? Can you picture your mom slurring her words, screaming at you, at the neighbor, at anyone and no one? Or did you have the silence? Dad just sitting on the couch, beer after beer, not saying a damned word to anybody? Then getting up and going to bed, and no one even noticed.

What the hell are you waiting for? You know what that felt like. You know how lonely you were - even when you were surrounded by tons of people. You know the desperation and the sadness. The sense that no one - no one in the whole damned world knew what you were going through.

The thing is - we do know. Families in Recovery knows - because we've been there too. So here's the first step. Go to familiesinrecovery.org/firststep and give just $5 dollars. That's less than a movie. Less than a venti-whatever-the-hell-you-drink. It's nothing to you. But it's something to us. Giving $5 - that's just the first step.

Want to know the second step. Not till you take the first.

So, what the hell are you waiting for? familiesinrecovery.org/firststep
