I sent it to many many people and I've been getting 'thank you' emails.  What a great film.
It's amazing how much can be said in a few minutes.

THANK YOU!!!
I have often said that one never knows how many lives you touch.  In a day or a lifetime when you think about how many people you come in contact with and impact it is amazing.  It is up to you to make sure the impact is a positive one. This sort of played that out in a very nice way.
I will pass this on.
Again, Thank you.

I'm STILL getting emails from friends thanking me for sending this.  Remarkable!!
It was sent to me by a fine man, a fine wood carver, in the south.  I've never met him but we've
been writing since 1993.  (in '93 and  and several years later we wrote by hand. Remember that?))

 Just Beautiful ! Thanks for sharing Nancy I have shared with family and friends.Just sent it out can't wait to hear the reactions.We have a small bussiness at the airport,when my youngest son was about five he had a handful of coins that were in our van and he asked if he could give them to the homeless that came into the airport to stay warm.I told him sure that would be nice,but how will you know who to give them to.He said Mom I know the perfect place to leave them and I asked him where he said over by the ash containers where people put their cigarrettes out.He told me that is where they get their cigarrettes and things to drink out of the trash.He said maybe they could buy their own if they had the money.

I really love stories like "CHANGE FOR A DOLLAR" It really puts things into perspective,the true meaning of Christmas and giving from your heart and not so much from your pocket.How a small gesture or a small act of kindness can change a persons life.We should all try and be kind and giving not just during the holidays but everyday.
