Help us get “What You Can Do” back on PBS.
Think all you can do in a minute is brush your teeth or order a pizza? What if we told you, you could help change the world in one minute? What if we told you that in only 60 seconds you could fight global warming, or hunger, or promote breast cancer awareness? Seems impossible, right? What You Can Do – is a series of one-minute programming that will give you the tools to do exactly that.
We began by premiering the series on PBS affiliate WLIW21 and have been offered the chance to get back on air with 21 episodes if we get sponsorship. That's where you come in!
Help us get television distribution by donating whatever you can to this important series.
Why do we want to get this series back on TV? In a little over one year, What You Can Do has gotten over 8,000 people together on Facebook. We've had the opportunity to shine the light on programs from over 70 organizations such as Mercy Corps, the National Domestic Violence Hotline and Defenders of Wildlife. And in just one week, we got people to save almost 2,000 gallons of water just by agreeing to turn the tap off while they brushed their teeth. But we want to do more. We want to get our one-minute movement to more people and we think television provides us the perfect opportunity to do just that.
If you've LIKED us on Facebook, if you've enjoyed finding out simple ways to fight climate change, to promote respect and diversity and to help fight cancer, then donate to What You Can Do. We promise it should only take you a minute.
Join our community and help us change the world, one-minute at a time.
