Today, it is our great pleasure to announce the launch of CaseSoup, an interactive hub of videos and live discussions centered around some of the big issues and areas of focus that are important to us here at the Case Foundation. With CaseSoup, we hope to engage and challenge our viewers while serving up a streaming cup o' good.
Last fall, in the lead up to America’s Giving Challenge, we hosted Gear Up for Giving, a series of online social media tutorials, that featured live Q&A sessions with a social media expert who provided insight on the value of leveraging technology to raise money and awareness for causes in an interactive way. Learning from the successful model of Gear Up for Giving, CaseSoup will allow for a more interactive experience for visitors to our website, and will leverage our existing programs and content in a new and fresh way.
Thursday, April 1: Steps to Successful Nonprofit Videos with Youtube and Flip Video To help kick things off, we'll have our first CaseSoup session next Thursday, April 1 at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT, when we’ll be joined by Ramya Raghavan of YouTube and Basho Mosko of Flip Video who will share with us some of the secrets to creating successful nonprofit videos. Ramya and Basho will be taking your questions live via Twitter, UStream chat, or you can kick ‘em to us old school before the session by sending an email to CaseSoup@casefoundation.org. We were so pleased to partner with YouTube, See3 Communications, Flip Video, and NTEN this past month on the DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards. While the submission date is unfortunately now closed, it’s not too early to get a jump start on preparing your best nonprofit videos for 2010.
Stay tuned for more information on other upcoming CaseSoup sessions, and in the meantime, we hope you’ll join us next week as we unveil the mysteries of successful nonprofit video. We’ll give you insight on how you can drive sign-ups and donations straight from your videos, find skilled videographers through YouTube’s Video Volunteers program, and even get free products from Flip Video through their Flip For Good program.
