“There is a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”

Sophia Loren


This post has very little to do with philanthropy … but a lot to do with life.

For me, September feels like the beginning of the New Year. Not only do many of us bundle our kids off to school but, having enjoyed the slower months of summer, it is around this time we tend to refocus on our work. So given the time of year, perhaps there is no better opportunity to reflect on the many wonderful messages in the seven-minute film, “Alike” below. What I find particularly interesting is often the messages are different for each viewer of this incredible piece created by Spanish animators Daniel Marinez Lara and Rafa Cano.

Alike” has been viewed by over 10 million people on YouTube and Vimeo and has won 81 awards (that is not a typo) so far since its release in 2016.
