This short video of 3 seniors trying to take their first selfie in an attempt to advocate an end to seniors’ hunger is a fabulous example of form helping function.

Their use of technology is so charming & ‘real’ that you can’t help but watch …. & thereby learn a little more about hunger issues facing seniors.

It shines the light, via technology & humour, on an important issue.  Likewise with this incredibly moving video about the reason behind the ALS ice bucket challenge from Upworthy.

Yup yup.  Form (technology) supporting function (social issues).

Here’s the info the women are promoting about seniors’ hunger:  Nearly 5 million seniors struggle with hunger in the United States. Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, provides food to over 3 million of those seniors. May is Older Americans Month – take a selfie with a senior you know today to show your support and bring awareness to the issue. Learn more about senior hunger and how to get involved.
