"The Help" Review and Give-Away!

HURRAY!  WE FINALLY DID IT!  "1,000" FOLLOWERS!  SO LET THE 
"GALA GIVE-AWAY" BEGIN!


OUR FIRST GIVE-AWAY IS:

Change begins with a whisper!

Don't you just love that line?  I do.  It almost makes me want to sit up, and take notice!
Hi, Everyone!  Well, "The Help" finally came out in theaters everywhere. 

THE POWER OF ONE PERSON WITH ONE IDEA CAN CREATE CHANGE!

How powerful is that line?  Almost gives ya goosebumps doesn't it?
The movie is deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, “The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.
Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.  PRESS RELEASE

Who am I to say my comments about this movie when you can all go to your local theater now, and see the movie. Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.   "THE HELP" opened to fantastic numbers this past week and has made over $36 million dollars in its first 5 days of release!  So, go feel the movie, and let me give you something now to remember it by!

Oh. My. Goodness. That is just to much to remember for me to sign up.

However, I am a GFC follower, and I play along with MMMM. That's all I can remember. I read the book "The Help" but haven't seen the movie. Waiting for it to come out on DVD. The book was fantastic.
