I “WALK” “TALL” WITH ” “BRUBAKER TRUMP”   Leave a comment

white long sleevesBRUBAKER WAS A MAN THAT WAS STONG AND SMART, IN THE TRUE MOVIE HE FOUGHT THE POLITICS THAT HAS BEEN THE DOWN FALL OF “AMERICA” I SEE “TRUMP” AS A MAN THAT WILL FIGHT AND WIN AGAINIST  A CORRUPT SYSTEM.  IN THE MOVIE ROBERT REDDFORD PLAYED A NEW WARDEN TO A PRISON.
“WATCH THE MOVIE BELOW AND SEE “TRUMP” BEAT THE CLINTON’S!!!!!

 

 

In 1969 a mysterious man (Robert Redford) arrives at Wakefield State Prison in Arkansas. As an inmate, he immediately witnesses rampant abuse and corruption, including open and endemic sexual assault, torture, worm-ridden diseased food, insurance fraud and a doctor charging inmates for care. Brubaker eventually reveals himself—during a dramatic standoff involving Walter (Morgan Freeman), a deranged prisoner who was being held in solitary confinement—to be the new prison warden, to the amazement of both prisoners and officials alike.

With ideals and vision, he attempts to reform the prison, with an eye towards prisoner rehabilitation and human rights. He recruits several long-time prisoners, including trustees Larry Lee Bullen (David Keith) and Richard “Dickie” Coombes (Yaphet Kotto), to assist him with the reform. Their combined efforts slowly improve the prison conditions, but his stance enrages several corrupt officials on the prison board who have profited from graft for decades.

When Brubaker discovers multiple unmarked graves on prison property, he attempts to unravel the mystery, leading to political scandal. A trustee decides to make a run for it when he realizes that he might be held accountable for killing an inmate. The resulting gunfight, in which Bullen is killed, proves to be the clincher that the prison board needs (acting with the tacit approval of the governor) to fire Brubaker.

A statement before the credits explains that two years after Brubaker was fired, 24 inmates, led by Coombes, sued the prison. The court ruled that the treatment of the prisoners was unconstitutional and the prison system was ultimately reformed. Meanwhile, the governor was not re-elected.

“WHY” SHOULD I LIKE MEXICAN IN MY COUNTRY WHEN THEY BURN “MY” “FLAG”   Leave a comment

 

Donald Trump’s surprise decision to visit Mexico, the country he wants to seal off from the US with a security wall, has not been warmly received south of the border.

Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, who has previously compared the Republican presidential nominee to Hitler and Mussolini, tried to strike a more emollient tone, tweeting: “I believe in dialogue to promote the interests of Mexico in the world and to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”

Many of his countrymen, especially among the intellectual elite, were rather blunter as they anticipated the arrival of a man who has accused Mexico of “bringing their worst people” to America, including criminals and rapists.

“@realDonaldTrump you are not welcome in Mexico,” tweeted Miguel Barbosa, of the opposition party of the Democratic Revolution. “Get out! You’re coming to get your picture taken with the very people you’ve offended.”

Barbosa also attacked Peña Nieto, saying his invitation to Trump was not worthy of the Mexican government.

The former president Vicente Fox, who has frequently criticised Trump for his conduct towards Mexicans, was equally direct. “There’s no turning back, Trump, your insults to Mexicans, Muslims and others have dropped you into the hole where you find yourself today. Goodbye, Trump!”

He added, Trump should “quit out of dignity for yourself, get back to your ‘business’”.

Mexico’s former first lady Margarita Zavala, herself a potential presidential candidate, was equally frank : “Even though you may have been invited, we want you to know you’re not welcome. We Mexicans have dignity, and we reject your hate speech.”

Enrique Krauze, a historian, called on Trump to show he was sorry for his words and ideas. “Apologise @realDonaldTrump for calling us rapists and killers, guarantee that you won’t build the wall or deport 11 million Mexicans,” he wrote. “Tyrants are to be confronted, not pacified,” Krauze told the Televisa TV network.

Mexicans have already made — and beaten to pulp — piñatas of Trump in response to his constant derogatory comments. They created a video game in which players can throw soccer balls, cactus leaves and tequila bottles at a cartoon image of Trump.

But his rhetoric especially spooks the political and business classes, which have pursued closer ties with the United States over the past 25 years and bet heavily on The North America Free Trade Agreement – an agreement Trump wants to renegotiate or rip up altogether – only to experience a rise in nativism and an anti-Mexican backlash.

Some in Mexico’s working classes, meanwhile, seemed less preoccupied with a Trump visit.

“He’s welcome with open arms,” said Efrain Rodríguez, a hotel employee in the south-eastern city of Villahermosa. “Everyone has their culture, their beliefs. We need to learn more about it.”

Trump is expected to meet Peña Nieto at some point in the middle of the day before travelling to Phoenix, Arizona, to deliver an address on immigration.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER ANGELA “BOOTs”   Leave a comment

 

 

 

On August 14, 1961 my sister was born, and here is what other things that makes the date so special.

Monday 14 August 1961

1961-08-14

It was Monday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was John F. Kennedy (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Tossin’ And Turnin’ by Bobby Lewis. In UK You Don’t Know by Helen Shapiro was in the top 5 hits. Pit and the Pendulum, directed by Roger Corman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1961 while The Agony And The Ecstasy by Irving Stone was one of the best selling books

Poke My Birthday on 14.August.1961

On your Way to Your Birthday on 14.August.1961:

You were born on Monday on 14.August.1961 and you think this is your oldest day of your life history but you are sadly wrong. Let’s surprise you:

8.October.1960, Saturday, (Your birthday -310 days):

On 8.October.1960, Saturday, your father has produced the semen that will be half of you soon.

He produced 1000 sperms every second of his life and you will be lucky one out of 500 million sperm he sent on their way in the conceivement. You may find interesting to know that if he had drunk (or not drunk) coffee on this Saturday morning, you might be born completely as someone else (for instance in the opposite sex) as Caffeine changes the speed of male sperms.

23.October.1960, Sunday (Your birthday -295 days):

Today your mother had her last menstrual cycle and started building up the egg, that will be the other half of you.

After today, she will not have this cycle again for a very long time (thanks to you!). She spent Sunday as moody, anxious, short-tempered and you should be glad, you were not around her that day!

7.November.1960, Monday (Your birthday -280 days):

Your mother’s egg is ready to build the other half of you and your father and your mother got together to make you.

But there is still no “you” around so don’t get excited much. It can take several hours for your father’s sperm to reach your mother’s egg and now it is just on its way out.

8.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -279 days):

Out of 500 million sperm on their way to your mother’s egg, the sperm which built you has won the race by coming first and the sperm and the egg is became one to make your very first cell. Do you see how lucky your half (the sperm) be by winning coming up first among 500 million other rivals? Never tell you are not lucky anymore!

We can call Tuesday, 8.November.1960 as your “first day alive” because this is when you are a living entity, an embryo, congratulations! Although you are just a 1 cell creature today your unique DNA is also formed so your future destiny like your sex, height, physical apperance, intelligence, characteristic and vulnability to certain dissesases is already been determined.

22.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -265 days):

If your mother is an intelligent women, she would have suspected that she is pregnant at 22.November.1960, Tuesday. She is not very sure yet but she is suspicious. We hope she was excited and joyed, not worried.

29.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -258 days):

Today your mother is telling your father about her pregrancy and he is celebrating to be a daddy!

Day 29.November.1960, Tuesday is also important in that, your heart has pumped for the first time today. We don’t know if it is a coincedence that your father learned about you in the very day, your heart first pumped!

13.February.1961, Monday (Your birthday -182 days):

Your parents could have lawfully got an abortion until 13.February.1961, Monday so this is also an important day of your life. Today they decided you should live!

We are glad they didn’t otherwise, we’d lose one site visitor in pokemybirthday.com.

14.August.1961, Monday(Your birthday):

You are born to a cruel world. Happy birthday little buddy! We hope you remember to enjoy your life which was a big journey from day minus 310 to today.

Your lucky days are Monday (Conceivement date, Your parents decided to not to have an abortion, You were born) and Tuesday (Your first cell is built, Your mother suspects she is pregnant, Your heart beat for the first time).

  • You are exactly 55 years 1 week 4 days 8 hours 34 minutes old.
  • You will receive your next birthday gift in 2 days 15 hours 26 minutes later.
  • If your hair were never cut since 14.August.1961, it would be 8.014 m. today.
  • If your nails were never cut since 14.August.1961, they would be 1.989 m. today.
  • An apple tree seeded on 14.August.1961, bore 4,884.011 kg. apple till today.

Its contribution to economy is $19,487.2 and it fed 8,195 people. We hope that in your life you, as a human being, achieved more than that poor apple tree.

  • Not as much stress

    Hey everyone I’m 11, my life at school is very horrible, not that i get bullied. School stresses me out so much that it gets me and my mom sick. I already missed 13 days of school because all that stress gets me stomach and head aches. My mom always tells me to feel positive, but honestly it never happens. I’ve been begging my mom to home school me but it won’t work.

  • Unless You’re Ignorant

    Those who believe home school should be banned simply need enlightenment.
    Homeschooling is not for everyone, but the vast majority of people who dislike it have clearly never experienced firsthand the wonders a loving parent can do for a child’s education in a safe environment.
    I’ve been homeschooled my whole life, except for about one and a half years in which I experienced public school and decided for myself that I loved homeschooling with a fiery passion.
    Most parents homeschool because they love their children and want to spend time with them. They believe a child’s education is personal. Homeschool is incredibly flexible. Each child’s course book, pace, and studying location is molded to their abilities. This provides optimal efficiency. In a public school, everyone’s put into a cookie cutter or mold. Everyone has to learn basically the same thing at the same pace. There are constant delays in class. The smart kids are bored and the slower kids are lost.
    Social life is fantastic for homeschoolers. The flexibility of their schedules allows them to meet with friends at any time. Co-ops are free from peer-pressure, teachers with bias, sex, drugs, and alcohol, and violence. My co-op has been one of the biggest blessings of my life.
    They learn responsibility better than public schoolers, because they must learn self-motivation. Their work ethic is amazing. Colleges actually seek after homeschoolers. On average thier GPA is higher, and so are their ACT and SAT scores. More homeschoolers go to college than public schoolers.
    Who can better teach values, personal morals and good behavior than a loving parent? There are so many students in public schools that teachers must be fairly impersonal. They only have five days a week with kids for two semesters, then the kids move on and get a different teacher. Homeschooling is different. With a mom or dad personally guiding the child’s academics, their learning is vastly improved and no one is left behind.
    The parents are perfectly qualified to teach. There are hundreds of courses custom made for homeschoolers to equip them for college, the world, life, and tests. These courses are self-explanatory and tell the parent what activities and lessons to do so that their school year is thoroughly planned out.
    Oh, I’m sorry, was I rambling? I could go on and on. I have to cut it short. Excuse me while I go write a book about this.
    I adore homeschooling.

  • Homeschooling is Better!

    As the other says homeschool is very fun and you are not stress on studying. Do you think one teacher can teach all students like 40 – 50 students? One teacher can’t focus their attention on one child or another. On home school, parents are very focus on their child and you are able to make your own curriculum for your child to enjoy!

  • Homeschooling is much better than public schools

    Its less stressful and you like to learn about things. I hate public schools that are less fun and the teachers can be mean. Some teachers don’t teach the way that you can learn. You don’t have to get up early and you have better food .You can still see friends

  • Depends on the student

    I know people who have thrived in public school and homeschool. I also know people who have had a terrible experience with both. The argument that homeschooled kids are antisocial is complete crap. There may be some, but there are just as many kids at public school who have no social skills whatsoever.

  • Can you seriously be asking

    If homeschooling is better than public school? Is a cheeseburger better than a hot pocket? Yeah? It is if you have a brain! We throw money at the public schools like it is water to a fire and we are still far behind the rest of the world in education. People think after they give their child over to the state for 12 years, 14 with pre K and K5, that they only need 4 more years of college to learn something. Obviously, if the state can’t get it done in 14 years then there is a problem with that whole idea. Socializing? Socializing is for the summer. I don’t want my kid becoming a social butterfly and worrying about brand name clothing and other superficial garbage that will help her in no way once she is an adult. How many kids end up pregnant and strung out on dope in the public school system? Yeah, that’s real cool. Anyone that sends their child to public school should be charged with abuse. If you can’t raise your child, which includes teaching them, then you shouldn’t be having kids. This government kills more kids across the world than any government in history. No, my child is too valuable to be handing her over to a psychotic system with no morality or ethics. She can socialize at Stanford. You can have your public school. The world will always need burger flippers.

  • Home schooling is not better than public schooling

    Firstly, public schooling has more choices for education. This is because public schools bring teachers for different subjects. This means that the students are able to study different kinds of education. In my school for example, we get to choose the subjects we want to study from year 10 (have a few exceptions). This is not just our school; almost every school is like this. Home schooling on the other hand, there is a limited amount of education knowledge that your parents can give to you (unless they have the money to hire private teachers). 2005, the New York Times reported a family that was being taught in home. However, the children were not able to have a physical education. When the parents sent them to a public school, the children of the family were able to have the educations that they wanted.

  • Home schooling is not better than public schooling.

    No, I do not believe that parents who home school their children are helping them instead of sending them to a public school. Going to a public school helps students develop their social and interaction skills with other human beings, which is a skill that just cannot be taught by home schooling kids.

  • Home schooling is bad

    It is because kids may not get the chance interact with each other.Also if a kid is doing bad in school does not mean you shall home school your child,Give him what he wants such as:Xbox play station etc…And also let him do whatever he wants such as:go out with friends etc…And never hit your children or threaten them that will scar them for life.SO DO NOT HOME SCHOOL YOUR CHILD!!!

  • Extra activities after school ??

    Personally I think public school Is better because the extra curriculars after school you can join like sports,drama,or a running club I would go to school all excited about going to basketball after school or going to volleyball practice after school ended I loved having these extra curriculars and in homeschooling you can’t really do those extra activities after school. I go to a public school and I LOVE school!!! I wake up every morning thinking YES I can’t wait to get to school!!! I’ve never had a problem at a public school, sometimes there’s that little fight with your best friend but you’re just learning how to cooperate with other people and listen to their ideas. Anyways I love public school and personally if you want to do extra activities like sports or drama or any extras after school public school would be a good choice. At least it is a good choice for me!

  • Lack of life skills and social interaction

    Homeschooling fails to provide the inner nourishment of values, that all schools provide. Life skills and values like responsibility, honesty, fairness,etc. Are stressed more in schools.Homeschooling may appear easier, but it lacks the basic value system that every child should be taught.Also, homeschooling does not allow the students to interact with all kinds of people around them, which leads to many problems in the child’s future. School life is of course the best part of one’s life. After all.. We must enjoy what is provided in life!

  • Advantages of Public school

    There are some people that do not get along with other people well, but that does not mean you should put them into a home schooling program! They need to learn how to cooperate with other people so they can get jobs. In modern life, you have to get a job to sustain a healthy life, if you cannot work with your co-workers, the you would always be in search of a job because you can’t cooperate with other people. I actually have a friend that was home schooled from elementary to high school and every time we brought up the subject of school, all she would say is” You are so lucky that you have the choice to be in a public school. I can’t even be in a public school for a day.” This home schooling will effect children in the long term. Unless your child is extremely mature and will do well in the world even after home schooling.

  • In a public school you will have more opportunities.

    In a public school you are able to pick your classes and you can join extra activities. Band. Orchestra, football, basketball, soccer, cheer, drama club, N.A.L., P.E., manufacturing classes, ect. They are not available when you are homeschooled. Even though public school might be harder it is much better for your future.

  • Home schooling teachers arent reliable

    If you look at the teachers who are in public schooling they HAVE gone through an interview before they can start teaching in the school. During the interview the school can get to know if the teacher is really willing to teach…The school doesnt want teachers who are not bothered about the students, they dont want teachers who dont care. Wile in home schooling there is nothing like an interview. The teacher just comes to your house and your taught. The teacher can not be trusted. They are unreliable. So to conclude public schooling provides better and more professional teachers than home schooling.

  • Homeschooling is terrible compared to public schooling!

    My cousin gets homeschooled so she can have a more flexible schedule. Her, and my aunt. My aunt wants it more for her, but my cousin, after about three weeks, says she hates it! She never gets to see her friends, because they always have homework or are studying or something. She goes to home school groups, but nobody gets along in those. She doesn’t get as much help as she would in public school. In public school, you have so many resources for help. Homeschooling is either your parents, your siblings (which she is an only child), or the teacher online, but she doesn’t know every subject. Her mom refuses to send her back to regular public schooling, and she hates her life now! She wants a normal life, she tells me. And that I’m lucky to be in a normal schooling system.

    Home schooling is not better than public schooling. Brainwashing is ok for this person!!!

 Most of the people that find themselves in a Shelter or the Salvation Army system are the ones that fall through the crack in a system with to many guild lines that is to protect each person.  That is where the problem fall’s short.  Back when I was young the Church is the ones that help all the people in the city and towns.  But today’s world I don’t see the churches doing what was done 40yr ago. we rely on the SSI Food Stamps, and Fed and state help, I do see a lot done for the shelter by church “FOOD” is one of the things they do very well.  And GOD see’s that I am sure.  What this web will do is give you a  insight of what is needed by you I am not asking for money.
I want you to go and see and talk to the homeless!! Don’t be scared!! They are more scared of you, then you of them.
Bring some of the things I listed above and give it out to them, Very easy they will be sitting outside until 4pm 7 days a week.
Ask there names, ask what do you need? very easy to do this.

Zachary “Zach” L. Bonner (born November 17, 1997) is an American philanthropist and founder of the non-profit charity Little Red Wagon Foundation.[1][2] Bonner received the Presidential Service Award in 2006.

When he was seven years old, he founded the organization to aid the 1.3 million homeless children in the United States.[1] Bonner said that, “These kids don’t have a home, they don’t have a safe place to sleep at night. They’re out on the streets not because they want to be, but because it’s out of their control.”[2]

In 2007, Bonner began his three-stage “My House to the White House” project. The project’s purpose was to raise money and awareness for homeless children. In 2007, he walked 280 miles from Tampa to Tallahassee, Florida, while in 2008, he covered 250 miles from Tallahassee to Atlanta, Georgia. In the final leg of the trip, he walked 668 miles from Georgia to Washington D.C. Upon the completion of the “My House to the White House” project, Bonner planned another project, March Across America. From March 23 to September 14, 2010, he walked 2,448 miles from Tampa to Los Angeles. Starring Chandler Canterbury as Bonner, Little Red Wagon, a docudrama about Bonner’s philanthropic work, was filmed in 2010 and released in 2012.

Philanthropy

Bonner has done a variety of volunteer work since he was six years old.[3] In 2004, when Hurricane Charley hit neighborhoods, he collected 27 pickup trucks of water in his little red wagon.[4] He established the Little Red Wagon Foundation to “continue helping kids more efficiently”.[2] Bonner teamed up with the StandUp For Kids and collected 400 backpacks of supplies, nicknamed “Zachpacks”, for homeless children. The Zachpacks were filled with donated snacks, toys, and toiletries. To date he has distributed over 10,000 of the Zachpacks.[5]

Bonner organized Christmas parties for homeless children living in Baker, Louisiana,[5] and he gave Christmas presents to Hurricane Katrina victims.[6] To mitigate the adverse effects of homelessness, Bonner hosted parties for children who live in shelters at Build-A-Bear Workshop, Chuck E. Cheese’s, and Six Flags.[7]

In April 2007, he organized 24 Hours, an event that simulated being homeless for 24 hours. During that period of time, students in high school stayed in their own separate boxes for 24 hours.[8] 24 Hours 2015 was the seventh year of the event in which youths 12 to 21 years old each paid $24 to live in cardboard boxes for an hour to simulate being homeless.[9]

In January 2010, he launched a national campaign to end child homelessness. As keynote speaker at The Children’s Philanthropy Center Annual Youth Symposium in Northern Virginia, he inspired young activists to use their voice to create change. The message, “You Matter! Let Your Voice Be Heard” became the signature anthem for their youth advocacy movement.[10]

My House to the White House

Zach Bonner’s “My House to the White House” project took place in three stages covering 1,225 miles to raise awareness and funds for homeless children. The first leg in 2007 from November 3–26 covered 280 miles from Tampa to Tallahassee, Florida and raised $25,000.[11][12] The second leg in the fall of 2008 covered over 250 miles from Tallahassee to Atlanta, Georgia.[4]

The third leg of the trip began May 11, 2009.[13][14] The 668-mile, 59-day walk from Georgia to Washington D.C. was completed on July 10.[15] On the final stretch of the walk, 500 people, among them 300 homeless children, walked with Bonner down the National Mall.[16] Bonner met with Saxby Chambliss and spoke with several other U.S. Senators on Capitol Hill.[15] He slept at the Sasha Bruce emergency shelter.[17]

March Across America

There’s an ancient Chinese proverb: ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ Most people don’t walk a thousand miles, or 2,500, but what it really means is that we all need to take that first step to get something big done. If I’ve helped even one homeless child, I hope I’ve accomplished that.

In 2010, he walked from Tampa to Los Angeles.[17] Calling the trip “March Across America”, he began the 2,478-mile walk on March 23, 2010.[19] Bonner walked an average of 17–22 miles every day.[20] During his walk, he gave gift cards to people in need.[21] Multiple television and radio stations tracked for their viewers Bonner’s journey across America using the “Zach Tracker” GPS.[22] Lee Cowan of NBC Nightly News “Making A Difference” profiled Bonner in early August; Cowan called Bonner a “pint-sized philanthropist”.[21] On the show, Bonner said that “When you’re having a bad day you (have) to realize that someone else is having a lot worse of a day than you.”[21]

Bonner planned to complete the walk by September, after 178 days of walking.[23] On September 14, 2010, Bonner completed the nearly 2,500-mile-walk to Los Angeles.[24] At the age of 12, he became the youngest person to walk from the East Coast of the United States to the West Coast of the United States.[25]

Zach In A Box

Beginning March 26, 2013,[26] Bonner lived seven days in a 512 cubic feet (14.5 m3) plexiglas box in a field near Westfield Brandon mall.[26][27] With plywood serving as the box’s bottom, pieces of cardboard, and a sleeping bag, Bonner aimed to imitate a homeless person’s lodgings.[27]

Naming his fundraising effort “Zach In A Box”, he encourage peopled to donate nonperishable food. He wanted to coat all four walls of his box with donated canned food items.[27] After seven days of donations from children and adults as well as a $1,000 donation from Sweetbay Supermarket, Bonner gave over 6,000 cans of food to Metropolitan Ministries and Francis House.[26]

Food for a Million

From noon November 7, 2014, to noon November 8, 2014, at the Metropolitan Ministries’ holiday tent in Tampa, Bonner hoped to set a Guinness World Record for amassing the most canned food items in 24 hours.[28][29] He organized “World’s Largest Food Drive: Food for a Million” with Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding America Tampa Bay, an attempt to collect one million pounds of food in 24 hours.[29] Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Performance Food Group, and Publix promised to contribute food to the effort.[29]

The previous world record holder was a North Carolina school that collected 559,885 pounds of food in 2011. Bonner’s “Food for a Million” drive collected 566,600 pounds.[30] The collected food was delivered to 10 counties: Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Hernando, Citrus, Sumter, Highlands, Hardee, and Manatee.[31]

Awards and recognition

In 2006, Zach has received the Presidential Service Award from President George W. Bush.[32] In the same year, he was honored with the Points of Light Award by Florida governor Jeb Bush for his volunteer service.[33] Bonner has met George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.[34] He has been featured on Good Morning America[35] and in 2011 was named a hometown hero by Reader’s Digest.[36]

In 2007, Bonner was named one of 12 “Huggable Heroes” by the Build-A-Bear Workshop.[37][38] On March 19, 2008, he received the Alexandra Scott Butterfly Award from the Volvo for life Awards, hosted by Volvo on 42nd Street.[39] In 2009, the readers and editors of Beliefnet chose Bonner as the Most Inspiring Person of the Year. Receiving 22% of the vote, Bonner defeated the “hero pilot” Chesley Sullenberger and students in Iran who protested against a rigged election despite considerable jeopardy to their lives.[3]

Elton John donated $25,000 to Bonner’s cause after Bonner completed the 1,200-mile-walk from Tampa, Florida, to Washington, D.C..[40]

Philanthropy Project movie

Main article: Little Red Wagon

Michael Guillen, the CEO of the non-profit organization Philanthropy Project, planned to make a $5 million movie about the Zach Bonner’s walks and the Little Red Wagon Foundation.[15][40][41] Bonner’s story was selected from among a pool of 6,000 candidates. After the number of candidates was narrowed to 12, Bonner’s story was unanimously chosen.[42] Praising Bonner for his philanthropy, Guillen said that “[h]e’s sincere. He’s humble. He’s generous. He’s everything that is good about our country. So… when I see Zach, I see the future of our country, and I think we’re going to be in good hands.”[43]

Patrick Sheane Duncan is the movie’s screenwriter, and David Anspaugh is its director.[42] The John Templeton Foundation funded the film which was produced by Michael Guillen of Philanthropy Project, Barbara Kelly, and Steve Golin and David Kanter of Anonymous Content.[44] Little Red Wagon was filmed in May 2010.[45]
