Job Description

Audience: Attendees at a fundraiser (mid 20's-60's, business people, family men)

Audio File: .aiff final/ .mp3 (for reviews)

We are looking for the VO to sound like this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCHhwxvQqxg

The client is 1mission.org, they build houses in the barrios of Mexico. The video will be used at their event, then eventually online on their site.

Script is attached, and below:

Meet Jesus. And these are his neighbors, Pedro and Maria. They all live in the same neighborhood but they don't know each other….yet.

They all live in houses that look like this. Houses with no running water, no electricity, no plumbing and no heat or air conditioning. They need houses but that is just the most obvious need. What about their health, safety, sanitation, nutrition and educational needs? Their needs are great. What if we had a way to use building homes as an entry point, to address all of these life-sustaining issues?

Jesus really needed a house. So we told him that if he worked in his own community, we would work in ours to raise the funds and help him get one. While he was serving at his neighborhood church, we were giving up birthdays to raise money. While he was helping at the local retirement home, we were riding bicycles to raise awareness. While he was asking his friends to help, we were asking our friends to help. Through volunteering, Jesus met Pedro, who also needed a house. Pedro started serving as well.

You can imagine where this is going. Pedro and Jesus, together, literally impacted their entire community. Houses become so much more than just four walls and a roof. They catalyze long-term development by empowering once hopeless families to impact entire communities. Through volunteering to earn their houses, community members like Jesus and Pedro get connected to educators, healthcare workers, pastors, and most importantly, each other.

Not too long after Jesus and Pedro helped build each other’s' homes, they were together again building a house for Maria, who also served hundreds of hours in her community. And before they knew it, all their kids walked to school together and shared meals together. They simply lived life together.

Before, our friends were alone in their community with limited options, no hope, and no direction. Now, they are not only connected to each other, but they are also connected to their entire community….a naturally created support network.

They relied on each other for support, tapped into new resources, and built a self-sustaining community. Jesus, Pedro and Maria’s lives were changed forever.

How does a community pull itself out of poverty? Together.
