021 Upic U: United Way of Lake County video “Statisticks”


Learn about the creation and distribution of TED nominated video “Statisticks” from Upic member United Way of Lake County (IL).

Many United Ways are focusing on preparing children for school and life through a variety of educational partnerships and collaborations like Success by Six.

Last fall, Upic member United Way of Lake County produced an animated campaign video which tells the story of how small interventions in early in a child’s life can fundamentally change the direction of their life.  The video not only received the attention of their community, but was recently nominated as a finalist for a TED award.

In this podcast episode, UWLC staff members, Jennifer Yohan and Valerie Peterson share the journey of creating and sharing this informative and educational viral video which is perfectly aligned with their educational agenda.
