IN THE NEWS
KINDNESS IN TRAGEDY
I live in a small town (330k) in Montana that was recently hit with a freak avalanche that buried three people. One was a 8-year-old boy who was stuck in the snow for 45 minutes before being rescued by concerned citizens. This town came together like I have never seen and organized a recovery project that was volunteer based for 13 days before any city officials got involved. People just jumped in with shovels to help dig out the three victims. Because of the community's selfless acts, two people survived.
I myself went to the site and got on my hands and knees to try to dig out a tapestry that Michel's son saw and was visibly struggling with the fact that it was her last piece since there were pins still in it. I was cut deeply with shattered glass but kept working until an EMT told me I had to go get stitches.
It is that kind of movement that stirred in me an idea for a film that if each of us just does something small, any act of kindness, it can ripple out into society and enrich the lives of others as well as their own. Why are we here? What can we contribute? We are here to help each other is the answer I came up with, and I wanted to share the effects of kindness with the world!
I always have been passionate about what I can do to help, I have been filming and editing commercials and want to change gears to produce this first documentary and really appreciate everyone's support!
THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING! EVERYTHING HELPS!

Risks and challenges
Risks we hope to overcome
are facing the fact that this genre has been tapped into with films such as
"Pay it Forward" and "I AM."
Although the base message is the same; all acts of kindness can benefit one another, this film is not a push for action, rather a glimpse inside the lives of people touched by great and small acts of kindness, and how that can ripple into society.
This film might take longer than expected to finish and might not debut in February 2015, but with my passion and tenacity I hope to make our goal.
Do we set up in our own minds what level of kindness or helping is enough? Shouldn’t the level of kindness, giving, or help be endless. Should it not continuously grows as we become more others focused? This film will explain:
- What motivated people to do what they do.
- How people in our community have become "others focused."
- Tell the story of kindness that came out of a tragedy.
