Since the very beginning, when VidDay was only a concept floating around in our imaginations, we knew that we wanted to start a business that was a force for good. Being part of a business that gives back to communities is very important to us. That’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of The VidDay Effect as our philanthropic initiative.
We truly believe in the power of giving.
When we make someone happy, we become even happier. We see this with every VidDay created. The creator is as happy (if not more) as the recipient. So giving as a means to spread happiness and make yourself happy is a win-win that anyone can get behind. That’s why The VidDay Effect is a no-brainer for us. It’s our little way to give back.
We’re committed to donating a portion from every VidDay sold to help spread happiness in communities around the world.
Moving forward, we’ll be partnering with different non-profits, registered charities, and humanitarian organizations to send our donations.
To get things started, we’ve chosen School for Kids in Laos Inc. (SKL).
SKL has one simple mission, building schools for children in rural regions of Laos who are in critical need of an adequate learning environment. All SKL’s members are volunteers, meaning that every penny contributed to their endeavors goes directly towards their mission.
Funding for schools built by SKL comes from individual donations and diverse initiatives such as garage sales, concerts, and annual fundraising dinners. The villages selected for projects are chosen according to these criteria:
Prior existence in a dilapidated state
Presence of local full-time teachers
Potential for growth
With your help, SKL provides children with an adequate learning environment by rebuilding dilapidated schools. In addition, the money that VidDay donates will provide the fundamental materials students need to succeed in school.
Each VidDay sold will buy a school kit which will be distributed to a student at SKL’s school building projects.
Please visit www.sklinc.org to read more about SKL’s projects and see the positive impact they are making in kids' lives.
