Here in the theatre we are busy learning how to make films when I came across this one as a rocking example of using your film for good. We viewed it in class and then crafted our own promise of one small, yet specific thing we would do for someone else before the end of the 2013/14 school year.
Promises were all over the map as some students promised:
- take grandma to the movies
- cook a meal once a week
- clean the kitchen and bathroom on Saturdays
- walk a relative’s dog once a week
- teach a sibling to play ball
While keeping promises is nothing extraordinary Alex Sheen certainly is. He launched Because I Said I Would, a “social movement and nonprofit organization dedicated to bettering humanity through the power of a promise,” and has been helping others keep promises that honor everyone. You can read about this rock star of an advocate here.
January is now over and have you kept up on those New Year’s resolutions? Chances are if you are like most people, you haven’t. But it’s not too late to commit to a small specific promise to help someone else.
So tell us:
What small specific thing you will do before the end of the school year? Let us know what it is and be sure to report back to us when you did it. Go ahead, make someone’s day!
