Challenge

Today's world urgently needs positive role models - leaders devoted to the greater good of their communities and the world. Frank Buchman inspired thousands to address global challenges, yet his work remains largely unknown. Over 5 years ago, a team of filmmakers began production of a documentary, which includes unique archival footage and firsthand testimonies of change as a result of Buchman's influence. We need your help to complete film production and expand our promotional efforts.

Solution

Your donations will help document Buchman's unique peace-making approach of transforming society through personal change and reconciliation. With your help we will offer inspiring ideas that can heal an argument, a community or a world by sharing this film with new generations. Your support will also help promote the film at international venues like the Illuminate Film Festival (illuminatefilmfestival.com) and the Caux Forum (caux.ch).

Long-Term Impact

There's real power in a documentary - it transcends culture, generations and countries, setting the viewer on a path towards a broader understanding. Today's global challenges can be overcome if people embrace visions and values which lead to racial reconciliation, economic inclusion, inter-generational & inter-faith understanding. When people change, nations change. You can help preserve and promote Frank Buchman's incredible work and unleash powerful initiatives of change throughout the world.
