ONE BETTER WORLD
PROJECT

MISSION

The mission of the One Better World Project [1BWP] is to inspire a better world through the production and diffusion of transformative multimedia art and social impact initiatives.

 

This is accomplished by way of social projects and initiatives that employ the communication arts and work with local, national, and global partners to identify and collaborate on small, and sometimes large challenges, so that our work may lead to a better, kinder, intentional, informed, and just world.

WORK

AIRMAN: THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF CALVIN G. MORET

Airman is a multi platform and educational documentary project about American and World War II history, aviation, and civil rightS.

 

Through the use of archival material and footage obtained documenting the last 3 years of the life of Louisiana's last Tuskegee Airman, Calvin G. Moret, it’s the very timely story of one man’s love of country and humanity, even during unconscionable times.

SOCIAL IMPACT INITIATIVES

Coats for Christmas works with the community and local partners to collect new coats and socks to help those enduring poverty and home-lessness keep a little warmer during Winter.

Our goal is to develop volunteer chapters of Coats for Christmas in other cities

 

Appeals for coats are conducted in collaboration with community part-ners, and via newsletters, social media, at in person events, and by requesting coats from retailers.

 

Coats are then awarded to reci-pients via partnerships with shelters for people without homes.

Can You Spare a Pair of Shoes? is a targeted program to raise funds that will be donated to the Sunflowers Orphanage, an N.G.O. in Zambia established for the orphaned survivors of parents who’ve died of AIDS. In order for these orphans to attend school, shoes are one of the most desperately needed and out-grown commodities. The Sunflowers Orphanage has been led by a trusted past colleague of Amy Serrano.

 

Currently, there are about 120 children at the orphanage with some who are also HIV positive

This campaign will inspire a kinder and better world at the local, national, and global level.  By way of 3 compelling social media kind-ness campaigns that aspire to go viral and multiply our outcomes, we will challenge and inspire others to exponentially expand acts of kindness in our world.  

 

This campaign is the reason we exist. To have our work lead to a kinder and better world.   We can not wait to share this with you!

 

More info will be out soon.
