Inspirational Films about Making a Difference and Giving Back

I hate when I have to rework posts due to creeps. With all of the buzz out there about the misogynist creeps in Hollywood, I am updating this post. I certainly do not want to promote anyone’s career who acts like that. And certainly, they don’t deserve to be mentioned in a post about gratitude and making a difference. (In other words, this is an older post, but I have removed some of the movies and added new ones.)

November is typically a thankful month. Some families express gratitude at Thanksgiving dinner, others cook at serve at community kitchens or donate to food cupboards. I’m restarting my gratitude journal with my kids. I also have plans for us to help with distributing supplies to the homeless on Thanksgiving weekend.
