My school shows videos from www.values.com. Today we saw the "do your part" video. It really helps with my problems. I'm 10 years old and I'm Claudia Winter Solis.

What a nice thing to get started! I've often wondered what COULD happen if the media, including movies, TV, etc., just practiced recognizing good old fashioned morality??? I wonder if a year of this kind of good stuff would make a change in turning around the ugly moral conduct we practice today?? Maybe our young people would really learn some good stuff to live by. I'll keep praying and do what I can. Many Thanks for your efforts. Blessings!

I love that this non-profit organization exists! I wish I would have had the smarts to do a similar organization. Are there any local volunteer or work opportunities in the Dallas, TX area? I am a strong believer that a smile and a positive attitude will make a difference. I wish we could reward people for their acts of kindness so that they could continue to pass it on as well.
