The Philly DoGooder Awards was launched to celebrate the power of impact storytelling through videos and create opportunities for the region’s emerging filmmakers to connect with the area nonprofits. The DoGooder project is awesome: create an original video that effectively communicates what the organization is all about and how the work of the organization impacts the lives of others. Then the video is voted on by both the public (through social media) and a distinguished lineup of judges at the awards ceremony in March.
CPL was very fortunate to be partnered with an amazing independent filmmaker from Philadelphia, Cory Popp. In spite of heavy snowfalls, Cory immediately began filming one of CPL’s graduates, Alison and her partner Wynn as they traveled throughout the city. Then he came out to the CPL campus in Cochranville and filmed service dog training in progress. In only ten short days, Cory put a wonderful video together that captures the energy, strength and hope of CPL graduates and their remarkable canine partners.
