    In an effort to bring more awareness and bring people together in support of Burma's people our company Shilo recently created this spot. Not only are the horrible atrocities happening to them by their government but now having to recover from the resent cyclone Nargis.
    My heart goes out to these peaceful people. please view the video and give any kind of support you can.

    Quoted from We Make it Good
    "We joined forces with an amazing group of people to create this viral public service announcement (PSA). The purpose was to raise awareness on the Burmese peoples ongoing peaceful protests against their military government’s notorious human rights violations. Working on this piece was a unique experience for us and it was exciting to work with such a passionate group of people.

    An important goal for each of us, in every project we take on, is getting people to think. With this piece, it is not just a provocation but a call to action. The people of Burma are oppressed: They are not free to express themselves. At Shilo, we are a group of individuals who make art for our livelihoods and we value personal expression as the highest of our freedoms. We are inviting people to join the global conversation about this issue and hopefully we’ll inspire people to make a positive difference for the people of Burma.

    This has become even more relevant due to this weekend’s cyclone that ravaged the area, killing thousands. Please join us in showing your support for this cause. Here are some helpful sites."

(The background photograph is of Kibera, the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Homes in Kibera are shacks of corrugated metal, with no plumbing or electricity. 20,000 children in Kibera can't afford to attend public school, due to the cost of books and uniforms. HIV/AIDS devastates the community.)
