• Medicaid | The Lived Experience:

    Share Your Story

    Medicaid is an essential program for over 4 million Floridians

    --particularly in light of the COVID pandemic. Yet Florida is one of 12 states that has not expanded Medicaid

     

    Now, more than ever, the public, the media and policymakers need to see and hear the STORIES of individuals and families who rely on Medicaid.

    Watch this short Soapboxx guide, review the details for each step in the process, then get ready to record your video.

  • STEP 1

    Record your story.

    STEP 2

    Submit your video.

     

    If you don’t like the video you recorded, you can retake it. When you have a version you like, click "Submit" and fill out the submission and consent form. You can also record your video then upload it later using the app.

    STEP 3

    Render & Animation Process.

     

    When you submit the video, Soapboxx will do a quick review to ensure that it is in line with their terms. They will add subtitles in your own language so anybody can watch the video - with or without sound - and add our logo to your video, giving it a clean and refined look.

    STEP 4

    Your video is ready to share.

     

    Once your video is approved, Soapboxx will send you the link in an email. Then, you can share the video on your social media accounts, and let your followers know you support Medicaid in Florida! We will also share your video on our website and social media accounts.
