Toronto, Ontario, United States, 2005/09/08 - Professional voice-over talents sensitive to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts are voicing public service announcements to charities directly involved with search, rescue, and sustenance.
InteractiveVoices, the voice-over marketplace, is helping professional voice talents to spread their Hurricane Katrina relief messages by airing public service announcements in the IV Podcast and including a link to the American Red Cross on their home page, assisting those who would like to donate crucial financial support to the victims of Hurricane Katrina online.
Two voice talents in particular have informed InteractiveVoices of the ways that they are making a difference and helping to save lives through audio awareness and financial support. Peter O’Connell, audioconnell.com, recorded a public service announcement (PSA) outlining how people can donate to charities serving the citizens devastated by Hurricane Katrina. This PSA is free to use for the purposes of gathering aid for the victims.
Julie Williams, voice-overs.com, is donating 20% of all her September voice-over recording income to Operation Blessing, a humanitarian organization based in Virginia Beach, Virginia that is helping victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Company CEO David Ciccarelli says, “Our voice talent have the resources to make a difference on a large scale. It is deeply moving to see how genuinely touched and professionally motivated they are to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, many of whom are also residents in the states of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.”
Beth Harris, beth.harris.net, is an InteractiveVoices talent that contributed a feature to the IV Podcast prior to Hurricane Katrina. Beth is a native of the New Orleans area and is thankful to report that she and her family are safe and that their home and business are intact. Power and telephone services should be reinstated soon. Ms. Harris asks that those less fortunate be kept in both thought and prayer.
Peter O’Connell’s PSA message is a part of the IV Podcast, is aired at the beginning of the show. Companies interested in using the :60 PSA can download the MP3 by visiting Mr. O’Connell’s website, audioconnell.com.
