2019’s Top 5

Thank you for your support of Shine Global in 2019!

We couldn’t have done all this without you.

  • Tre Maison Dasan had its broadcast premiere on PBS reaching almost 2 million viewers and sparking conversations about child welfare in the criminal justice system
  • The Election Effect,” Shine’s first digital series, was nominated for a Webby Award (aka “the Oscars of the internet”) and was a featured Webby for Good project. It’s now available for educational screenings to help teach civil discourse.
  • We completed Virtually Free for a 2020 release with the help of 218 backers on Kickstarter. Our 2020 release will use the film to promote juvenile justice reform.
  • Liyana raised more than $30,000 for the Liyana Educational Fund which helps cover students’ costs for higher education including university tuition and vocational training, as well as travel and boarding when needed.
  • Shine Global’s 5th Annual Gala raised over $175,000 to support our mission.

Thank you to all of our supporters who made this possible – and more to come in 2020!
