I’m really excited to introduce you to a newly released DVD (available TODAY at Wal-mart!) . . .
LITTLE RED WAGON is based on the inspirational true story of eight-year-old Zach Bonner on his quest to change the world with nothing more than his beat-up red wagon and a blazing spirit of philanthropy.
When Zach sets out to help homeless children in America in the wake of Hurricane Charley, by walking from his house in Tampa, Florida to the White House, he must overcome bureaucrats and blisters, and capture the hearts of his fractured family and the entire nation.
I know that my family will enjoy this movie! Notice that it’s from the director of Rudy and Hoosiers – those are 2 of my husband Brian’s all-time favorite movies! As for me, I’m a sucker for movies that are inspired by actual events.
Here’s a bit more about Zach:
Zachary Bonner was born in Searcy, Arkansas on November 17, 1997 but now calls Tampa, Florida his home. He is home schooled under the Florida Virtual School program and is in the 8th grade. Zachary started doing community service in 2004 after Hurricane Charlie hit Florida. In 2005 he formed the Little Red Wagon Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to help underprivileged kids with a focus on homeless youth. Zach believes we all the ability to make a change in the world if we just try.
Watch the trailer:
I’m always impressed with kids who see a need and take the initiative to do something about it. This is an area where so many adults are lacking these days; so it’s refreshing to see young people doing something!
