Two brave little boys are in rehab at Chicago Shriners Hospital, after losing both their parents in a horrific car accident. Nana Organic restaurant is teaming up with the Farmageddon film producer to raise awareness of the Show Your Hearts campaign for the Joshua and Robin Berry Children's Trust. See press release attached about their Bone Broth and a Movie event on Monday, August 29 at the Gene Siskel Center.
Chicago, IL --August 23, 2011-- After a horrific auto accident claimed the lives of their parents, two little brothers, both with serious spinal injuries are now in their fourth week of rehab at Chicago's Shriners Hospital. The brave boys, Peter and Aaron Berry, ages 9,8, and their little sister Willa, age 6, are now in the care of their father's brother Matt and his wife, Simone. Members of the local community, at the family's request, are sending nourishing broth to the hospital to aid in their recovery.
The August 29th screening of the new food documentary, Farmageddon--the Unseen War on American Family Farms will raise public awareness about the Joshua and Robin Berry Children's Trust, which was set up to receive much needed financial help for the medical care for the orphaned children. Celebrities, Justin Beiber, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Usher, Lady Gaga, and others, have launched an online fundraising effort for the trust. The unique ShowYourHearts.org campaign gives donors a downloadable reward, an avatar for their facebook page, and a twitter background. The goal of the campaign is to raise between $5 million and $10 million dollars for the needed medical care.
Filmmaker Kristin Canty and the boys aunt, Simone Berry each are members of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a nutrition education and activist group. Both mothers believe in the power of food to heal and restore the body. "It is serendipitous that we are both in Chicago at the same time," says Canty. "We know this event can help Chicago to 'show your hearts' for the Berry children, and reveal the healing power of real food."
Executive Chef Guy Meikle of Nana, a fine dining organic restaurant will personally serve two delicious soups to Farmageddon movie goers in the Gene Siskel Center Gallery Cafe. Host for the event is Jenn Cafferty of The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo.
A first time filmmaker, Kristin is a Massachusetts mom whose 4 year old son was healed of multiple allergies by adding farm fresh (raw) milk to his diet. Since she achieved remarkable results by working with a local farmer to heal her boy, she was alarmed to discover the FDA agenda to restrict access to this wholesome food.
The Bone Broth and a Movie event is being held at the Gene Siskel Film Center on August 29, 2011 at 5:30pm-9:00pm. The event is open to the public, Tickets can be purchased online at http://farmageddon-ch....
