Hi friend
One of my favourite things to do on a blustery Friday night is to make cup of tea, settle in with my family, and watch a movie that inspires our hearts. We’re picky about the content we choose to watch and I know many of you are too.That’s why I’m excited to share with you about Compassion Canada’s Movie Month: when you sign up (for free), you’ll have access to a new movie every Friday night for the month of November. Hand-picked by the team at Compassion Canada, these movies will nurture your compassion and celebrate the human spirit–two things that matter to our friends at Compassion.From a tear-jerking family drama to a heart-stopping look at teens in poverty, there’s something for everyone.
