One Child at a Time

The Nobelity Project and filmmaker Turk Pipkin are pleased to announce the release of One Child at a Time, a short film about The Miracle Foundation’s ground-breaking work to build “ideal” orphanage villages in India and improve the standards of living for the millions of children in the system, one orphan at a time.

Pipkin shot this film during multiple visits to The Miracle Foundation orphanages in India over the past few years. Watch the film here!

“My family sponsors a young boy through The Miracle Foundation,” said Pipkin, “and after meeting him and hundreds of other orphans whose lives have been transformed by the support, love, and education they’re receiving from The Miracle Foundation, I knew that this story needed to be told now.”

“We all know that children should not starve,” said The Miracle Foundation’s Caroline Boudreaux. “Turk’s seven-minute film exposes the harsh reality of the lack of children’s rights in third-world countries such as India, and it’s eventually going to help us win the battle against poverty by uniting individuals, families, and corporations.”

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
