The people have spoken, and we have winners for both the best and worst aid fundraising videos of 2015. Let’s start with the crap ones, cos that’s more interesting. The audience voted (predictably) for the Band Aid retread, but I thought this one from the One World Campaign was magnificently terrible (and almost unwatchable).
As for the best video, the audience chose this moving story of the work of the White Helmets in Syria
Fair enough, but I loved this witty WaterAid take on ‘If Men Had Periods’ (especially the Kevlar and NASA – great touch)
More background and finalists here. Thanks for brightening our lives (and powerpoints) to the organizers, the Students’ and Academics’ International Assistance Fund (SAIH)
