Texas Hands & Voices
Texas Hands & Voices is collecting videos of bedtime stories being read – We would like to add videos like these to our YouTube/Vimeo channels so they can be shared with families stuck in the shelters – to bring some normalcy to their lives if at all possible. We know a lot of kids would not have been able to bring their favorite books with them!
Please consider reading a book and sharing the video with us (ASL/voiced/both – captioned if possible) so we can load them for these families! Doesn’t have to be high quality – captioning can be added fairly easily in YouTube, not sure about Vimeo. Different levels of stories would be great!!! Send them to office@txhv.org and we will add them to the collection! http://www.youtube.com/user/TXHV
