How You Can Spread Love This Giving Tuesday 👇
What is Giving Tuesday? 🤟
Giving Tuesday is a global movement that was created in 2012 to inspire charity and generosity in our communities. The day takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – this year on December 1st. The goal of Giving Tuesday is to inspire and encourage people to do good for others, whether it’s offering a small act of kindness or helping those in need.
Join us this Giving Tuesday to spread love. We all have something to give!
What is the Theatre Development Fund (TDF)? 🎭
Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. A great way to give back is to help organizations that are eliminating access barriers for people with disabilities. This Giving Tuesday, we’re giving back to TDF.
TDF Accessibility Programs provide access services for theatergoers who are deaf or hard of hearing, have low vision or are blind, have autism, and have mobility disabilities. Their goal is to create live theater environments that are accessible to all. The accessibility programs include services such as open captioning, ASL interpreters, audio description, accessible seating, and autism-friendly performances.
TDF sells theater tickets at a discount to raise funds for its theater access programs. With Broadway and theaters indefinitely shut down due to COVID-19, funding barriers have raised challenges for the non-profit. That’s where you can step up and help us give back to TDF for the wonderful work they do. Simply upload your files for captioning and transcription on December 1, 2020, as you normally would, and 3Play Media will donate $1 to TDF for every file submitted.
3Play Media Cares About Accessibility 🤝
At 3Play Media, our mission is to make videos more accessible for everyone. As a company, we love solutions that benefit the communities we serve and understand how important it is to shine a spotlight on accessibility.
Now more than ever, the world is shifting to a digital space, but unfortunately, much of the content online still isn’t accessible. As video continues to rise, it’s important that everyone has equal access to it.
Faces Behind The Screen 💻
Inspired by the popular photo-interview project Humans of New York, we launched Faces Behind the Screen (FBTS) at the beginning of 2017 to spread awareness about web accessibility. Through photos and interviews, we have been able to share many unique stories that give everyday people a face, a voice, and an opportunity to share their story and perspective.
Our aim is to simply connect the world with these stories, offer a new perspective, hopefully, shatter common stigmas and preconceived notions, and remind everyone that the world wide web, including websites, apps, and other digital interfaces, needs to be accessible for everyone – including people with disabilities.
