One Meal, One Hope video brings home Telly Award

One Meal, One Hope. It’s a simple, but audacious promise. And one that Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission delivers on every day. Men and women who are hungry and homeless come into the Mission for a meal, and stay to transform their lives.

As the theme of the fall fundraising campaign, we looked for a way to visually illustrate the transformation from meal to hope, and how that happens for thousands of men, women and children who come through the Mission’s doors.

So we partnered with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission and Vossler Media Group to make this video …

We were thrilled that it resonated with donors and helped provide over 300,000 meals for people who were hungry and homeless. But then we got an even better surprise.

The video was recognized by winning a Silver Telly Award in the Online/Internet Commercial Not-for-Profit Category. This is the Telly Award’s highest honor, and a symbol of creative excellence. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor we are happy to share with the Mission and Vossler Media Group.
