During the month of February Kid Flicks sent 1,300 DVDs to 13 new hospitals. Every week we receive DVD donations from families, schools, movie studios, production companies, churches, synagogues, Girl Scout Troops and other organizations.
Special “shout outs” for major donations in February go to: Lakeside Elementary School in Coppell, Texas; The Magical Peacocks Kindergarten class at Village School in Campbell, California; Gathering Place Church in Powary, California; St. James the Apostle School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois; and Lucy Damsker of Furlong, Pennsylvania, who collected DVDs to donate at her 8th birthday party!
Kid Flicks will be featured on Giada at Home on the Food Network Saturday, April 13 (8:30 a.m. PT; 11:30 a.m. ET and Monday, April 15 noon PT; 3:00 ET). In this special show, entitled Ladies Empowerment Lunch, Giada de Laurentis honors three women who are doing amazing things for others by hosting a luncheon for them. Be inspired and pick up great recipes! The menu features pan-fried salmon with green Goddess Tzatziki, Quinoa Salad with roasted eggplant and apples, and iced tea with berries, melon and mint!
Where do YOU want our next Movie Library to go???
Kid Flicks is compiling the list of upcoming Children’s Hospitals and Pediatric Departments to send DVDs to, and we want to give our supporters the opportunity to tell us where they want the DVDs to go first for the upcoming holiday season! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of a Children’s Hospital, and if we haven’t sent to the hospital in the past we will add it to the top of our list!!!

We all have the power to effect change–we just need to find the strength to harness it. With every good deed done, and helping hand offered, we are making the world a better place. The dedicated women selected as this year’s recipients of Harlequin’s More Than Words award have changed many lives for the better, through their compassionate hearts and unshakable commitment. To celebrate their accomplishments, bestselling authors have written stories inspired by these real-life heroines.
In this book, Michele Hauf honors the work of the Barta sisters–Berni, Romi, Lexi and Marni Barta–and the not-for-profit organization that they founded, Kid Flicks.
We hope More Than Words inspires you look inside your heart and to get in touch with the heroine inside of you.
