Will You Transform A Life & Volunteer Somewhere?
Are you giving your life to someone by volunteering somewhere in your community?
A few months back, my friend Issac Ingram
contacted me about helping him with a short film project to inspire others to volunteer in their local communities. Issac has served in a youth detention center outreach organization (Team Freedom Outreach
) to give young delinquents hope and to steer them away from a life of crime.
With an idea brewing for years, Issac wanted to boldly ask not just the Obama's but also George W. and Laura Bush to team up together and produce a video encouraging Americans across the country to volunteer in their local communities. Obama's video message was the catalyst to inspire Issac to act now.
He teamed up with the director he had been discussing the project with for years and they scripted and scheduled the shooting. I spent one of the days of shooting helping out and playing a volunteer for the short film which depicts a young man's life altered by volunteers who poured their lives into his. Here's this finished short film with an introduction by Issac.
