World of Kindness Donation Fund

In Detroit, there are 20,000 homeless people and only enough shelter beds for less than 2,000. 

We want to change that.

Each year the White House holds a film festival for students. This year the prompt was: "The World I Want To Live In" and we decided to make a video to bring up the problems of homelessness and to highlight the need for random acts of kindness. 

In making this video we were so inspired that we decided to use this video not only to show the problems of homelessness but to try and fix them as well. 

The money from this fund will go straight to the Detroit Rescue Mission, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing hope to the hopeless, abused, and disadvantaged of our community.

We would really appreciate that you donate to this fund. If you decide to donate, we will list your name at the end of our final submission to the White House Film Festival.
