For the Stavis and Fabing families, the end of October carries special meaning. Eleven years ago, Brice Fabing--talented, young, and compassionate--lost his life. In his passing, Brice added "hero" to his legacy. The Fabing family, in their support of #DonateLife, saved many people that day.
Jim's documentary, Source of Hope, shares this story, and continues to inspire audiences around the world through learning about Brice's life and gifts of life, as well as Jim's perseverance in the face of adversity (and a triple #transplant).
Today, as we remember Brice, we celebrate a new award for Source of Hope *and* a far-reaching new venue for Brice and Jim's story. Source of Hope is now featured in the The MY HERO Project film vault, where teachers, students, and fans from around the world can view award-winning short films that inspire and educate. Source of Hope was also chosen as a 2016 official selection, honorable mention "Overcoming Obstacles" category, and will be screened live in LA on Nov. 19th & 20th.
The thought of students from around the world watching Source of Hope, making the decision to #DonateLife and do good things in this world--that's what it's all about. Let's all pay it forward today, find a little more gratitude, and try our best to remember the deep and far-reaching impact one good deed can have.
