Guilty Of Giving - A Mini Documentary For Occupy Sandy
A Mini Documentary To Support #OccupySandy, and to spread transparency in all that we do. A Film By Jason Samel - Edited By Jason Samel.
When there was no help for the undocumented community members, or as our government likes to call them "illegal aliens", Occupy Wall Street activists, and community members stepped up to the plate and created a massive and well oiled relief organization called Occupy Sandy.
On December 18th, 2012 an organization Music For Occupy's Executive Director teamed up with Viper Records and some of the biggest names in socially conscious Hip Hop to hold a fund raising concert at the Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn N.Y.
Immortal Technique, Jean Grae, Pharahoe Monch, Hasan Salaam, Poison Pen, Jarisi X, George Martinez & The Global Block Collective, and Rebel Diaz all performed. They came together to show a sold out room of close to 600 people in attendance, that we can come together to provide mutual aid, and raise funds all the while being completely transparent. A few days after the concert, Immortal Technique, Viper Records, and Music For Occupy (Jason Samel) set out to The Rockaway's, in NYC which was one of the hardest hit areas in all of the east coast. They brought the nearly $7,000 raised from the Hip Hop Relief concert, and another relief concert MFO produced on Long Island with DJ Logic and Nickodeums, and went to local mom and pop stores and purchased supplies, and delivered them directly to Occupy Sandy headquarters, dubbed YANA (Your Are Never Alone).
With the help of cinematographers, and photographers they were able to document every moment. Music For Occupy produced this Occumentary "Guilty Of Giving" - A Guide To Legitimate Fundraising and Activism, to show the world...Undocumented human beings are still human beings, and it is our humane responsibility to take care of those that need our help, when there is nobody else around.When you tell people you are going to use money which they donated for a specific cause, show them that you were honest with them. Transparency is the only way.
