A horrific fire took the lives of eight youth in New Orleans as they huddled together, trying to shield themselves for the cold winter’s night. Survivors say the fire stated when the youth burned wood in a barrel as they shivered in an abandoned warehouse.
Covenant House used the fire tradegy to highlight the need to get teens off the streets and into secure housing and a safe environment. They gave Design for Social GOOD raw video of Covenant House President Kevin Ryan speaking about the devestation. Our researchers found compelling images of the fire aftermath and acquired them to include in the above video. Meshing Kevin’s voice with video and still images, Design for Social GOOD procuded an emotional appeal to not let this happen again.
