PLAN (Planned Lifetime Assistance Network) of Southwest Ohio received the gift of a video celebrating the important work of PLAN, and its work.
The video is the brainchild of Sandy Schnur, who has dealt with depression since age 12 and now owns a successful video production company. The video premiered to an enthusiastic crowd at a May event that also included a PLAN participant art show.
The Blue Ash nonprofit answers the question many families ask: “Who will care for my loved one with a severe mental illness or chronic disability when I’m no longer able?”
Schnur participated in cognitive enhancement therapy offered by PLAN. She wanted others to share in her successes and thought the best way was to create an outreach video.
During this time, she became involved with Dress for Success Cincinnati’s Professional Women’s Group. Through that group, she became a 2015 Community Action Project coordinator. The CAP project turned out to be the perfect vehicle for her to produce the video. As part of a worldwide competition of 100-plus CAP coordinators, her PLAN video ranked in the top three.
