Sometimes we just don't seem to "fit in" - for whatever reason. This collection gives insight into those that are different and yet, somehow find their way in the world. Uplifting; courageous; inspiring!

When a young girl discovers a group of homeless children living alone in a park she is determined to find a way to help. With some help from friends she learns that anyone can make a difference.

Juror comments: I love this movie about kindness and making a difference! Bethany learns about a group of children living in the local park and discovers she can make a difference. She convinces her friends and their families to help. By listening to the kids and their needs and not judging them, she comes up with a plan to help them. The story is told in a caring and respectful manner.

I like how Bethany respects the homeless children and does her best to make a difference in their lives. She does not break her promise to them but still gets support from a group of her friends and their family members.

The cinematography is very good. Most shots are close-ups of kids capturing their situation and facial expressions. The homeless children seem surprisingly clean and neat for their environment.

Bethany (Savvy Carefoot) is believable and compassionate. The film’s director, Danielle Vernengo, is also a co-writer and she has paced the film to make it heartfelt and understandable to the audience. The entire cast is really good and works well together.

The message of this film is that anyone can make a difference in the lives of others. The title says it all: Hope, Give, Change. I didn't realize that there are so many homeless children in the U.S. The statistics given at the end of the film shocked me. My favorite scenes are when the homeless children are working together to clean their camp and when the group of girls meet together to think of ways to help homeless kids.

I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 19 to 18, plus adults. The film shines a light on an important topic and is done in a way that is caring and respectful. Homelessness is a big issue today and deserves our attention. Reviewed by Selene W. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror.
