Inspired by a remarkable true story, 5000 BLANKETS is filled with hope and highlights the power of family and faith. When her husband has a mental breakdown and goes missing, a woman and her young son set out to find him on the streets, sparking a movement of compassion towards those in need and inspiring a city.
I have a huge heart for the homeless. Huge. I don't often know how to help. We have volunteered to help cook meals once a month and serve meals to the homeless in our community, but a safety issue arose that was specific to that one place but enough to make us cautious enough not to return. We also give food to those who are homeless when we pass them by. It's not enough, and we want to be safe, but still find a way to help.
This movie inspires me.
There are so many ways to help. So many things that can be done.
Homelessness, no matter the reason, is unsettling. A tragedy.
I am very much looking forward to seeing this movie.
