Our second promotional video is here.

We are proud to unveil the second in our series of four videos. We made these to highlight a few important causes—in this case, domestic violence—and to tell the world what The Lamp Project is all about. And we made them thanks to an all-volunteer effort by a big group of wonderful and talented people. Please see the credits below (or at the end of the video) to find out who.

You can see our first video here.

New promotional video.

We hope this video we’ve produced encapsulates the mission and spirit of The Lamp Project, and maybe even inspires some people to action. It focuses on domestic violence and is the first in a series of four that we’ll release in the coming weeks. Let us know what you think.

And by the way… these productions were all-volunteer. Together they stand as yet another reminder of how a compelling cause can bring people together.

See our second video here.
