Our Own Christmas Movie about Generosity: Pay it Forward

Hi Everyone - I thought it might be really nice to not wait until January for our next movie since it is Holiday time and a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to reconnect...

Likely many of you have seen this movie, "Pay It Forward" (if not the description is below). It's a classic feel-good/do-good in the world flick and a bit of a tear jerker as well...

I think it's a great movie about the spirit of Generosity which I want to explore during our next Saturday Group gathering in December.

As always, for those that are interested we will discuss the movie afterward.

Hope to see you there! And please bring friends or family!

PS - This is a "casual" event... so bring pillows or a blanket if you want to lay on the floor and be super comfortable, or just use one of the folding chairs!

PSS - Diamond Heart has a great projector and sound system so the "movie watching" experience is rich and full :)

PSSS - A donation of $5 per person is requested, but no one is turned away for inability to pay

Hope you can make it and here's the info about the film:
