Watch The Miracle Foundation on CNN!

caroline_on_cnn1The past month has marked some major steps forward for The Miracle Foundation! We were featured on CNN International; our founder received the prestigious Young Global Leader Award; and we will be featured in Turk Pipkin’s new film, One Peace at a Time, that premiered on April 14th. The accomplishments of The Miracle Foundation are being recognized and shared across the world!

The Academy Award-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire, has depicted the terrible conditions of orphaned children in India. In light of its success, CNN recently aired two different segments focused on ‘Hope for India’s Kids’.  Both segments feature the work of The Miracle Foundation and one also includes an interview from India with founder Caroline Boudreaux. Since they were aired, these segments have generated increased traffic to The Miracle Foundation website, and many donations and sponsorships for these children that I just spent a week with last month.

Also, Caroline Boudreaux has been selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. This is a community of exceptional young leaders who share a commitment to shaping the global future. Each year the World Economic Forum identifies 200-300 extraordinary individuals, drawn from every region of the world. Together, they form a powerful international community that works to dramatically impact our global future.

Caroline was also honored by the philanthropic community at the April 14 premiere of the Nobelity Project’s film, One Peace at a Time. The new film, that features The Miracle Foundation, looks at global problems that have solutions that are already working, and that could be amplified all over the world.  The film asks one very big question – “Can we provide basic rights – water, nutrition, education, healthcare, opportunity and a sustainable and peaceful environment – to every child on Earth?” Of course, we believe WE CAN and you guys are already doing it!

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."
