The photo a day project is something that has been done now hundreds of times. You know the one, in which a person snaps a photo of themselves every day and combines it all together into one video. While I have seen a number of these videos before, I have never seen one quite like this. In this video we witness photos of a young lady who over the year shows signs of bruising evidently caused by domestic abuse. Read on to learn more about this video and why it was shared.
Just as all these videos start - this one begins with the young lady snapping a shot a day. But as the video continues we start witnessing bruises appearing on different parts of her face and it continues to get worse throughout the year. The powerful short was produced in Croatia as a public service announcement drawing attention to the issue of domestic abuse. The video ends with the young lady holding up a sign that translates to, "Help me, I do not know if I can wait for tomorrow."
Let's help spread this message so that this powerful visual is seen by as many as possible. If you, or someone you know is a victim of abuse please reach out to the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
No one was actually hurt fortunately in the making of this video. All effects were done with professional makeup. But the message it is getting out there is extremely important.
