In 1988, a teacher in New York acknowledged and honored every one of her high school students. Then she invited her students to honor three additional people throughout their community. One of these dramatically altered the life of a business man and his 14 year-old boy.
The teacher, finding out about this amazing series of events, then called the creator of the Acknowledgment Ceremony, Helice Bridges, to give her permission to use this true story. In 2007, Mary Robinson Reynolds, Make A Difference flash movie maker, was introduced to Helice by one of her own subscribers, and the two women joined their intentions to make the world a better place. Mary and Heart Productions & Publishing then created the exclusive AcknowledgmentMovie.com version of this heart grabbing story, which has currently been viewed millions of times.
