Not many know about this wonderful world taking place in plain sight.
Youtube is a part of everyday life for most people around the world whether it’s social use or news, but not many know of how popular fan-videos are becoming. Video editors of every age are participating in the uploading of videos millions of times a day. The sheer genius of some of these videos is astounding, and the influx of artistic creation has taken the internet by storm.
A few months ago I was introduced to a charity known as Vidders 4 a Cause . In their About Us section the foundation says:
“We are a group of video editors who have come together to offer our services for charity. The premise is simple, when an auction starts any person who is signed up and willing to bid can do so with any amount and on as many vidders as they’d like. When the auction ends, the highest bid on each vidder will win a video of their choice from that vidder! All money donated goes directly from your hands to a charity of your choosing. We will never ask you for money, if anyone on the website does so, Mary and I urge you to come to us directly about it.”
The charity has raised thousands of dollars for charity with the use of videos that anyone can make at home. They are primarily fandom videos which means they consist of the vidders choice of TV shows. The videos can be multifandoms (consisting of more than one TV show), crossovers, couples, alternate universe, tribute, and anything anyone can think of. The creativity released from so many different people is astounding. There are videos from all different countries centered around some of the greatest TV shows out there including Doctor Who, Merlin, Dark Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Roswell, Criminal Minds, Bones, Game of Thrones and so many more. Have you ever wanted to see two characters from two different shows together – here’s your chance. Just search it on Youtube and see what you find.
On their main site, you can find their Youtube channel, as well as many videos used in the charity. One of the site creators, Jane (also known as ImNaturallySuper on Youtube), was the first to introduce me to this wonderful event. Check it out! You may find what you like.
