organization History


ACT will utilize the most effective and efficient modes of story-telling to educate, entertain, and generate contributions of time and money to featured non-profit organizations.

Everything has a story. Tell it well and people will embrace it. That's what I see for non-profits large and small. ACT will tell their stories in compelling, entertaining, educational and inspirational ways to generate awareness, contributions and volunteerism.
