Fusion, the online media outlet co-owned by ABC News and Univision, is sponsoring a project inviting short (they say 20 seconds long, but some are a bit longer) videos where people send a “Dear Next President” message.
They provide simple instructions how to make them, which primarily consist of posting the videos on social media with the hashtag #DearNextPresident. They apparently monitor the hashtag and then pick up ones that they particularly like for broader distribution.
#DearNextPresident should NOT be confused with the National Writing Project/Public Television “Letters to the Next President 2.0” project (see This Is Great – National Writing Project & KQED Announce “Letters to the Next President 2.0″). But they seem to be complementary.
I’m adding this info to The Best Sites To Learn About The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.
Here are a couple of “Dear Next President” videos from Fusion:
Hi Larry. We are now partners! Letters to the Next President 2.0 and #DearNextPresident have come together to consolidate our efforts and support all students in having an opportunity to publish their letters, whether text or multimedia. We are excited and thanks so much for highlighting the work!
