YouTube/Google Account

Clear sound is crucial

  • If no one can hear it, no one will watch it. Shoot in quiet environments and project your voice.

Remove any backlighting

  • Make sure light is on your face and not behind it (i.e. don't sit in front of a bright window).

Title and tag your video

  • Use the title "Being an Every|Day Hero" and include your name and location (ex: "Being an Every|Day Hero: Mike in Chicago").
  • Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it (ex: "Bullying in Seattle" or "Discrimination").

Please don't use our logo

  • Please don't use our logo in your video, as it is trademarked.
