Our whole family have shared that. When one of your messages appear on Fox News each of us stop to watch and listen. We all appreciate what you are doing. Your site and all that it does is an inspiration to us all. Please don't stop as you never know whose heart you may soften or whose life you might touch for the better. From all of us to all of you "Thank You."

This is what we have needed for a very long time!! Thanks so much for putting the act of kindness out there. My kids love the commercials and it is teaching people that we have control over our actions. Don't stop!
Marylou L, La Habra, CA

I want to thank you for these advertisements. It's a nice change to be able to see something different from someone telling us to buy something. It is also the best when I see my kids watching and learning from them. They even have their favorite ones. Thank you.
Liliana, P, Seattle Washington

Your Spots which we see on Fox News are fantastic. We look forward to the many different ones shown through out the day. It is such an improvement over the trash that we are subjected to. Keep up the good work.

I love the Appreciation video. I could watch that one all day. The little boy and the piano is good too. Thank you so much for your advertisements, if that is what they are called. We have Fox News on all day long and I stop what ever am doing when your videos come on. May God Bless your company.
