Captain Family Farms – November 2023 Hey Westminster Grant Recipient

Today we want to give a HUGE shoutout to Tim and Julia Captain of Captain Family Farms who are our 2023 Hey Westminster November grant recipients! Their project is a year-long, ongoing series of monthly farm visits with students and educators – and who have recently partnered with North Carroll Community School where students will learn about methods and production (ecological impact of farming operations), contribute to farm work at their level (animal chores, weeding, planting) and grow some of their own food, to be donated to Food Sunday.

Their vision is that “students and their families will grow in their support of local farms for their own food purchases, and that students will grow in seeing themselves as stakeholders in our community: caring for our land and waterways, building our local economy, and stabilizing what has of late been a volatile and expensive food system. We believe these mindsets are developed early, through a deep resonance with community and culture, and we hope to help students and their families engage deeply with our awesome Carroll County food and farm culture.”

Lauren goes on to say, “Diaper need is a hidden but growing need in our community and the rest of the country. Carroll Baby follows a simple model- they collect donated diapers and redistribute them to families in need.”

Soni Sunshine Video – December 2021 Hey Westminster Grant Recipient

This month’s Hey Westminster blog is very different from the others because we share it with both joy and sadness. We filmed and photographed the Soni Sunshine Snow 5-0 event in Westminster, MD as part of the December 2021 Hey Westminster grant. This event was for Sonia Davis’ 50th birthday and brought out nearly 1,000 people to show their love for her and her family. She battled cancer for several years and recently passed after her birthday and community celebration.

During her time battling cancer, Sonia shared her experiences and resources for others battling cancer through Soni Sunshine. She and her husband Casey also began a nonprofit to financially assist those battling cancer called “Help On The Way!”

The Hey Westminster board decided to give this month’s grant to Soni Sunshine. Sonia and Casey immediately let the board know that they would be giving those funds to their nonprofit, “Help On The Way!” so that the money can help others. This is just one example of their generosity and heart for helping others.

We have been friends with Casey and Sonia for awhile and have worked on several projects together, so we are deeply feeling the loss for their family and our community. It was an honor to be a part of videoing and photographing this event for them.

Check out the video that we filmed and produced for Hey Westminster for the December 2021 grant recipient Soni Sunshine, per their request the grant will go to Help On The Way.

The Soni Sunshine Snow 5-0 had so many fun features to celebrate Sonia and help others.

They had fundraisers for their nonprofit, food trucks for guests to enjoy, a place to leave notes for Sonia, and characters from all of Sonia’s favorite Christmas movies. They even surprised her with a genuine “Griswold” house-lighting moment and snow machine. The kids absolutely loved the “snow”!

The power of storytelling

The power of storytelling GLBAL media video production maryland

As a company we believe in the power of storytelling and how it inspires others to take action. Each month we have the honor of producing the videos of Hey Westminster‘s grant recipients and sharing the story behind their company. In January we were introduced to Katie Kirby the Executive director of Together We Own It and the first grant recipient from Hey Westminster.

Katie has been working hard for years to build an amazing nonprofit based out of Westminster, MD that serves the youth in Carroll County. Together We Own It serves over 700 children across the state of Maryland; primarily in Carroll and Wicomico County. They strive to foster a sense of connection between youth and their community by connecting people and resources, mentoring, providing educational enrichment, and recreational empowerment.

Their recognition by Hey Westminster and the video we produced for them gained the attention of a local individual who wanted to learn more.

Read Director, Katie Kirby’s story:

Good morning! I just wanted to share the ripple effect that we’ve had after being the first Hey Westminster recipient. Someone saw the video that GLBAL media put together about us after we received the award. This person followed up and met with us, intrigued by how we got started and how far we’ve come, and ended up making a $10,000 individual donation. As a small but thriving organization, those dollars go so far here and we are excited to be able to continue to expand our work in Westminster. The impact your contribution has made in allowing us to provide 2 stipend positions for high school students to work with our team and lead youth programming has been incredible. I can’t thank you guys enough for what you are doing and the support you’ve given us as an organization! It means the world to us.
Best,
Katie Kirby

While we can’t guarantee that every video we produce will result in a $10,000 gift, we do believe that your story will help inspire others and allow people to learn more about your company.
