MASSACHUSETTS, USA, November 7, 2020 (HPI note: while this specific project was developed for the local community, we thought it such a nice idea that we should share it with everyone.)

Several community members, leaders and organizations across Massachusetts are coming together to celebrate Diwali this year. The Event is scheduled for Friday, November 13, 2020, 5:30 – 7:00 PM.

Given the virtual nature of the event, we are seeking a Diwali message from you! Please submit a short video (approx. 30 seconds long) of what Diwali means to you and wish everyone a Happy Diwali. Your video may be edited to be included either in the promotion of the event or be part of the main event!

Please submit your videos by Monday, November 9, 2020 to allow us time to include it. You can be of any age to submit a video because there is no age restriction to celebrate Diwali! Any language or any accent is accepted. If possible, please send a translation if speaking in any language other than English, so we can include it as the subtitles.

Example messages are found in the google doc form.
