Only today and tomorrow: Make reservations to help us bring Kindness is Contagious to OKC

-Kindness is Contagious:  September 16 (Kids and Teens Day) 7:30 PM @ Quail Springs Theater

Consider making reservations this week for the movie to make it.  Here is the article by Mrs. Charlotte Lankford in the Daily Oklahoman.  Reservations went from 10 to 43, but still need 22 more reservations for the movie to make it and we only have today and tomorrow!  Reserve your ticket ($11.25 per person) with a credit card at www.gathr.us/screening/12710, and you will receive your ticket via email.


A few weeks ago this column focused on the importance of kindness, and readers responded with their own thoughts.
Linda St. Onge, from Yukon, said, “Kindness is an attribute I value greatly in others and I strive to demonstrate and 'require' it of myself.”  
Andrea White wrote what I always like to hear: She thought the column was worth sharing with her two grown daughters, who were going to share it with their children.
Ed Apple, from Duncan, shared the wisdom of a verse by Adam Lindsay Gordon: “Life is mostly froth and bubble, Two things stand like stone, Kindness in another's troubles, Courage in your own.”
Mo Grotjohn, from Oklahoma City, recommended a book titled “Congratulations, By the Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness,” by George Saunders. A line in a quote on the back cover reads, “What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness.”  
That same week, an invitation came from Carmen Clay, head of Casady School's Service-Learning Program, to view a documentary titled “Kindness Is Contagious.” The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 16 at Quail Springs Mall AMC Theater and is open to the public. 
“Kindness Is Contagious” features scientists, university professors, street performers, soup kitchen volunteers, police officers, models, CEOs, athletes, roller girls, concert pianists and artists. The filmmaker asks each of them one question: “What is the nicest thing anyone has done for you?”  The audience will learn how a little generosity can help one live a happier, healthier, wealthier, longer and more fulfilling life.
The Quail Springs theater must have 61 tickets reserved several days in advance of the screening to present the film. Patrons will only be charged for the ticket when that goal is met, so make your reservation ASAP.
Reserve your ticket ($11.25 per person) with a credit card at www.gathr.us/screening/12710, and you will receive your ticket via email.
I hope to see you at the movies!

“I have come to believe that kindness may be the most important asset in any relationship, be that with a family member, friend, partner or spouse, boss or employee or the clerk behind the counter.” Charlotte Lankard
