Make a Film Foundation Empowers Critically Ill Children to Make Movies

It began with an email Tamika Lamison received: “If you could do anything, what would you do?” Lamison’s thought was that she would be one of those people that granted wishes to sick children. When Lamison completed Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program in 2006, she took on turning that dream into reality. An accomplished actor, writer and director, Lamison had plenty of contacts in Hollywood. It struck here–Why not support sick young people in making their dreams come true through film?

Love Project Empowers Kids to Give Back to Moms

Linda Kamka created “Project with Love” as her community project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program. The project was a fundraisher which inspired her local community in Orange, CA, to donate new jewelry, which would then be passed on to kids in the care of the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. These children weren’t able to get presents for mother’s day, and with the help of the project, each one was able to select a piece to give to their mother.
