the jubilee project: 50 people, 1 question

50 People, 1 Question is the latest fundraiser video from The Jubilee Project. As the title suggests, they asked fifty people on the street the same simple question. But it turns out to be not quite so simple. Some of the responses are kind of funny, and others are quite thoughtful, even moving. I was just going to sample the first few minutes and couldn't stop watching Take a look:

The Jubilee Project makes videos for good causes. This particular video is raising money for Services for the UnderServed (SUS), an organization that provides necessary mental and physical services for the neglected and needy. There are two ways that you, the viewer, can support SUS:
1. People can sign up to become a sponsor of the video “50 People, 1 Question” by emailing project.jubilee@gmail.com. Sponsors can pledge to donate at least 1 penny per view for the month of January, so if this video is watched a hundred times in the month, sponsors will each donate 1 dollar and so forth. Sponsors may choose to put a cap on how much they donate.

2. In addition, by simply watching the video people are helping the cause. Each time the video is watched, a certain amount of money will be donated depending on how many sponsors this video gets. For instance, if there are 5 sponsors, each view will generate 5 cents for the cause.
By the way, I love the shot of that giant group of Asian kids. They must be rolling like twenty deep! To learn more about The Jubliee Project, their videos, and their supported causes, check out the website here and the YouTube channel here.
