NEC to sponsor CNN video blog

MUMBAI: Under a new CNN initiative sponsored by NEC corporation, six men and women, wanting to make a difference in the world, will blog and post videos of their lives and jobs.

Titled Be the Change, it aims to harness CNN International’s global reach, multiplatform services and cutting edge technology to reach deep into the lives of ordinary citizens doing extraordinary things around the world to benefit others.

NEC’s sponsorship of Be the Change runs for a year from this month and is set to be broadcast worldwide while featuring online at

The work of the six people and the global platform the initiative provides is expected to inspire others to make their own impact through similar ventures.

CNN Asia Pacific VP news ad sales William Hsu says, "Be the Change is a fantastic initiative and we are delighted to have the support of NEC in this groundbreaking venture. To highlight and celebrate work that is rarely reported on and often barely visible to the larger community is hugely important and we hope that our global audience will share in these unique experiences."

NEC GM advertising division Junichi Shibi says, "Throughout its history, NEC has continuously sought ways to contribute to society through technological innovation and advanced solutions. NEC is proud to sponsor CNN’s Be the Change, which shares the goal of empowering people and societies around the world through innovative activity to effect change for the better."

Whether it’s building a sports complex for a disadvantaged community in South Africa, or aiding abused young people in Cambodia’s second largest city, the ‘Be the Change’ aid workers are committing their lives, their time and their energy to work for others.

One video diary from a contributor will become a weekly segment on CNN International television, while blogs from each contributor will be hosted on a specially-produced web site, in addition to biographical sketches, links to their organizations and photo galleries. The site will be interactive, allowing visitors to comment and post questions to and for the contributors.
