Who doesn’t like to see people smile? A smile can change the attitude of an entire room. It begins as a small facial expression, but its transforming power is remarkable.
A couple weeks ago, we had the exciting opportunity to spend a day in Lancaster, PA. Our goal was to create a film to help us share the story of KNO.
One of the highlights of the day was working with the talented and brilliant Sarah Hawkins who both starred in and co-produced the video. The writer and other co-producer was her friend Rick Hansberry. The pair blew us away by assembling together an amazing and talented film crew, and Sarah’s family treated us to a mouth-watering meal—‘taco-in-a-bag’, anyone?
We’re so excited to release one of the films we put together. It’s called “Smile.”
We’re glad to share that “Smile” will be screened at the Lancaster Area Film Festival on June 2nd, so if any of you are in the area, come out and watch it on the big screen! Also, we haveve entered “Smile” into the Sixty Second Film Fest, organized by Penn Cinema, La Porte Jewelers, and Fine Living Lancaster. If our film is selected as one of the top 12, it will be screened at Penn Cinema in Lititz, PA on May 13th. Keep your fingers crossed!
Enjoy watching the video, and go ahead and share it with friends and family. Our hope is that through this and our other efforts, people will learn about our movement and get involved. Why? Because helping those experiencing homelessness is fulfilling and it will bring a smile to your face and the faces of many others.
