A Small Act: a not-so-small impact

Admit it - you've sat up at night, unable to sleep and staring blankly into those infomercials about helping one child for just pennies a day.

What if I told you that it's possible, and it does help? Maybe not through those infomercials, but that just $15 a month can - and has - completely altered the direction of one Kenyan boy's life and set him on a path to have a similar impact on the generation behind him?

That's the exact turn of events in A SMALL ACT, the 2010 Sundance Film Festival hit that's coming to the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Thursday, September 15. This special engagement is a chance to see the story for yourself, and we're proud to help bring it to Indy.

What's more, the woman who helps change one child's life with her simple gift is a survivor herself - a Holocaust survivor, she found it in her heart to cultivate life and hope after a childhood of terror and uncertainty. Watch the trailer below.

The story is, in a word, incredible. And filmmaker Jennifer Arnold has captured all the best of it for the film, crafting a documentary that compels, enlightens and inspires. Join us for this exceptional evening - enjoy the film, and learn how you can give back; how one small act can set off a series of positive events that ripple outward like a pebble dropped in the pond.
