Happy Birthday TravelTelevision!

TravelTelevision Episode 160 celebrates our 5th anniversary of monthly TV show. We started as a series about volunteers in the Gulf Coast and continue to tell stories about volunteers working around the globe. TravelTelevision is the only crowd-sourced, all-volunteer TV series about traveling for a purpose. This year, we have added the website, www.travelforapurpose.com, so viewers can reach us in new ways.

Our volunteers have been working on increasing outreach through new websites, servers and community TV stations. TravelTelevision has an ongoing need for writers, video editors, producers, web and social media assistants. If you have some time and interest in this area, or know someone who does, let us know! Students can earn Student Service Learning credit hours.

This fall, we hope to re-launch our links page to create more visibility for the great non-profits that are engaging volunteers who travel for a purpose—so travel, volunteer and sign up on our website to help us grow in the next 5 years.

Our mission is to tell stories of volunteers who travel for a purpose and to assist nonprofits to encourage volunteer participation. As we gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving, our prayers go out to those who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy. TravelTelevision plans to help individuals and groups who are interested in volunteering in the Sandy-devastated areas start the process and record their experiences.

Community Grants

TravelTelevision’s support to our community extends beyond our production of a monthly TV series highlighting volunteers. Each year, Humanity TV awards grants to help our local partners. In 2011 Humanity TV provided unrestricted grants to Magruder High Schoool, Montgomery Community Media, Montgomery TV Volunteer Association and the Elexus Rule Project.

TravelTelevision Supports its Volunteers

As we begin our 6th year TravelTelevision will spotlight volunteers to showcase their contributions and reward their efforts. Our first honored volunteer is England Reeder. He has spent many weekends at the MCM edit suites producing a story seen this Fall about the Roberto Clemente Health Clinic in Nicaragua. In addition to spending his week studying communications at Montgomery College, he has been a multi editor contributor, editing stories on “House with a Heart” and the Montgomery County 25th Anniversary Celebration Day of Service. Both of these stories can be seen in Episode 160.
