I don’t know what gives me greater chills or makes me weepier — the stories being told here, or the fact that a corporation as big as Whirlpool created this video.
From the press release accompanying the video:
For 100 years, Whirlpool Corporation has focused on improving lives one home and one family at a time. The It Gets Better campaign supports that focus by addressing a problem that damages or destroys home and family life. Together, Whirlpool Corporation and the It Gets Better campaign strive to create an environment in which every person, everywhere, can support equality and contribute to the future and success of today’s youth.
“… a problem that damages or destroys home and family life.” Wow. That is just the damn truth, and I’m a little horrified by how revolutionary it still sounds. I very much wish I had need of a large appliance right now, so that I could thank them with my dollars. I suspect this video will influence my purchasing in years to come.
