The Same Kind of Different As Me {A Flash Giveaway} #SameKindMovieL3

**Passes received for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

The holiday season is very quickly approaching, and I for one cannot wait. It truly is a great time of the year isn't it? It seems that from the start of November through Christmas, people are in an especially giving spirit. It's not just the gifts that we place under the tree, but now more than ever it seems to me that people are giving their best efforts to help out those in need. 

It's also a time of thanksgiving, and perhaps that is what leads to that spirit of giving. When we truly take a look at our lives, we'll often find that despite the bad, we're generally pretty lucky. When we're thankful for what we have, it encourages us to want to pass it forward. 
The reality is, life happens to everyone and we could very easily find ourselves on the other side of the fence. When we think about it like that--- doesn't it make you want to get up and do something for those who are not as blessed?

If that doesn't the new movie Same Kind of Different As Me just might. Take a look:

“Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody.” Words of wisdom from a homeless drifter; words that never would be shared with the world if not for a wayward husband, a forgiving wife, and an unforgettable true story that brought the three of them together.
With more money than they could ever possibly need, Ron and Debbie Hall have everything they could ever want … except for a loving marriage. When Ron’s unfaithfulness is brought to light, Debbie invites him to stay—as long as he remains truthful and does what she asks of him. But when her request includes serving the homeless at an inner-city rescue mission, Ron would prefer to write a large check instead.  Guided by her faith and spurred on by the dream of a homeless man she senses will change their city, Debbie befriends a disenfranchised man named Denver. More surprisingly, so does Ron. Despite vast differences, their lives begin to intersect and they all are changed … forever.
I must admit I am very much looking forward to this movie! It might be coming out in this season where service is on our minds, but it's truly a message that I think we all need to hear throughout the year too. It can be really easy to look down upon others who are less fortunate, but the reality is we don't know the circumstances that lead to that point. This movie seems like it will be a great reminder to stay humble and to give back... something much needed in today's world. I for one cannot wait to watch this movie with my family.
