It's not earning the highest amount of "likes" for your content.
It's telling a compelling story and developing a relationship with your audience, motivating them to take action.
Here's how I've done it through words and video:
I initiated and implemented the Little French Books project in which my students wrote children's books in French
and I delivered them to underserved children in schools in developing countries. To fund publication of hard cover books,
I created a Kickstarter campaign with a promo video, earning $2K within one month.
Over 900 children in Haiti and Burkina Faso gained confidence in their reading,
and my students found meaning in language learning.
Press for the project:

Radio interview (WRIR Richmond, start time: 27:50)
I also love writing for the web, social media marketing, and collaborating with directors of award-winning short films.
