Every week on this blog we will feature one video that Smithsonian.com selects as an “Editors’ Pick.” In the two weeks since the contest launched, we’ve already been blown away by the high quality of the submissions. Note: these videos are not selected by the contest judges and have no bearing on the final result of the contest.
The featured videos are meant to inspire and encourage.
Today’s video is from David Alexander. David is a digital media producer and has been featured in The Atlantic, The Economist and Mashable. The Columbia University graduate traveled to India to cover The Starkey Hearing Foundation‘s initiative to donate one million hearing aids to children in the developing world by 2020. In his video, Alexander follows an employee of Starkey Hearing Foundation as he checks to make sure the donated hearing aids are working properly at the Asha Special School for Children with Hearing Disabilities.
