Please get in touch.
Hi, hope you’re keeping well. My name is Cecile and I am a journalist at the European Broadcasting Union in Washington. We work with public service broadcasters around the world to help them find videos and images to broadcast. Is this your video? https://twitter.com/risetopeace/status/1428746634826067971 If so, would you grant us permission to use it in broadcast and online player with a courtesy to you as per news-exchange.ebu.ch/clearance, please? Thanks & take care
I live near the Dulles Expo Center. I am sorry that I cannot donate time-feeling stretched by other volunteer commitments–though we have Stuff, I can buy Stuff, and I can donate the ever versatile $$.
Yours in peace, Sue Marcus
