Creative People Doing Good Things

Four young Bahai’s from the Philadelphia Area – Noel Chacha, Sophia Clark, Justin de Leon, and Brittany Owens - are in the process of making a documentary on the human condition of compassion and its effects, with a focus on Africa, entitled Give to Live. The film will be having a fundraiser at the end of this month.

Fundraiser at Mugshots Coffeehouse & Cafe
21st and Fairmount, across from Eastern State Penitentiary
June 26th, Saturday 8pm-9:30pm
25% of the evening's purchases go to Give to Live.

The film team is focusing on obtaining resources for travel to Africa and is shy $6,000 of the total $85,000 production budget. A recent contribution and challenge from Wakengo Mahaniah and Leesa Maule from Philadelphia has provided a significant boost for this final stage. They have issued a challenge to the Philadelphia community by pledging to double every dollar donated up to $500.

An additional way of contributing would be the donation of Frequent Flier miles or Buddy Passes to assist the team in travel.
