Voiceover, Volunteer Work and Giving Back
My love for voice over acting and previous volunteer work made me stop and ask myself – how can I give back if my time in the studio recording and editing takes away from time as a volunteer?
Here’s how – for every VO project booked and paid for a donation will be made to both of these organizations close to my heart.
Experience as a volunteer at O.A.T.S strengthened my previous work in my special education classrooms. As a side note – it was so rewarding to see the impact the therapy horses and therapy animals had on individuals with disabilities. An autistic child who does not speak but can say ‘Walk On’ followed with a huge smile makes time spent at O.A.T.S. priceless.
Experience at K9 Stray Rescue League as a volunteer was also rewarding. Time spent with homeless dogs taught me a lot about voice over. You learn quickly how a soothing conversational tone can help an anxious stray, or how a strong authoritative tone gives an alpha dog quality.
After fostering many sick puppies back to health – an un-adoptable K9 made me a ‘foster failure’…I adopted my best friend 8 years ago.
Does your non-profit organization need a voice over actor to move it forward? Let me help.
