"Give Along the Way"

Posted

Did you see the winning film from the 2007 Allstate Be Reel contest? It was a short film titled Give Along the Way? I love the quote kids have to see a future to have one. The narrator is letting us know that we can't wait until we've made it to be active in your community. Otherwise, our children may never see the positive images that they need. Why do so many people wait to give back? Any suggestions on what small things individuals can do know to make an impact?
