The Economy and You: Tell Your Story
Are you mad as hell? Scared to death? Optimistic? Skeptical and cynical? Are you eating out less? Cutting way back? Losing your home? Losing your job?
I'm not the only one interested in your story.
GroundReport, a project that collects first person reports on news stories, is looking for videos which are being collected for a TV program called Worldfocus.
Here's the note I got from them:
Has the sinking economy changed your life?
Tell the world how in a quick video, and your story could be aired on US television program Worldfocus.
We want to know, "How has the economic crisis changed your life?"
* How are you cutting back?
* Have shops around you closed?
* Are bills piling up?
* Can you afford doctors and medicine?
* How is your family's life different?
Want to respond? Watch the video question on GroundReport. Then show us the changes in your life in a short video and upload it to GroundReport with the headline "My Life in the Economic Crisis." The deadline is February 28th, so start filming today.
This topic is the latest from Talk To US, a new partnership between Worldfocus and GroundReport that asks the world for its perspectives on the latest news.
So what are you waiting for? Go grab a camera and start talking!
