Giving Makes Change

This film isn’t at a festival, but it is one that might warm your heart at this holiday season. Alabama Giving and Alabama Public Television have teamed up to create “Giving Makes Change,” a 30-minute program that airs Thursday, December 15, at 9 p.m. (repeated on Sunday, January 8 at 3:30 p.m.)

You can hear Birmingham’s Willie Grant, a sharecropper’s son now a retired engineer, talk about how he provides scholarships for science students. Or learn from Cristy Moody about what a group of young adults do — together — to support the needs of Walker County through their time, talent and treasure. Alabama Giving is a statewide initiative supported by foundations and by a grant from New Ventures in Philanthropy.

As Kathryn Tucker Windham says so eloquently in the program, “being able to do something for somebody else is the greatest gift we have.” Watch “Giving Makes Change,” and inspire yourself and your family this season.
