In celebration of its 6th Founding Anniversary, members of Volunteer Youth Leaders for Health - Philippines were invited to use the popular app Dubsmash and post their videos through their social media accounts with the hashtags #DubsmashThursday, #DubsmashForACause and #TatakVYLH. Dubsmash is a free video messaging application for smart phones. The application allows users to choose an audio recording and record a video of themselves dubbing the chosen piece.
#DubsmashThursday is one of the social media activities included in this year's week-long celebration which will culminate on July 18 (Saturday) with the Annual "Skype"-Pasasalamat Dinner.
Through the years, VYLH-Philippines has tapped social media and the internet in connecting the network and its volunteers. Every year, the network innovates and adapts to popular trends among social media users. This year's activity is an example on how a popular app can be used not only for entertainment, but also in the service of the advocacy.
The following are some of the videos posted by our volunteers:
