[TIPS] Pangea Day

In it I talked about the upcoming Pangea Day celebration. From this site: " "Pangea Day taps the power of film to strengthen tolerance and compassion while uniting millions of people to build a better future. In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it's easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that - to help people see themselves in others - through the power of film."

Just today I saw one of the most creative iMovies I've ever seen, done by a girl who just didn't know how to get started. But when she did, she took off. I can't wait to post it here in the blog for the world to see. If that girl had the access and the after school time, she could make a GREAT movie for this event. I'll bet YOU know someone like that, too.
