The National Film Board of Canada – Hannah’s Story

On March 1, 2011, in News, by Ladybug Foundation

“The National Film Board finished their film about the work I do. They promised me that after following me for 2 years, the story would really be about the people I care about most – our hungry and homeless. And they did. I love them for doing that. My great friend Rick is in that film and that is the most important part. He knows what life is like when you are hungry & homeless. He speaks right from his beautiful heart.”

This engaging documentary gives new meaning to the term ‘role model.’ Normally we think of children learning from their elders, but here is the story of an 11-year-old girl who is already inspiring adults to make a difference.

When she was just 5, Hannah Taylor spotted her first homeless person in the back alleys of Winnipeg. This experience not only troubled her but it drove her to do nothing less than change the world, leading to the establishment of the impressive Ladybug Foundation. Under Hannah’s leadership, that charity has raised over a million dollars, literally making change for those lacking life’s basic needs.

As this absorbing documentary shows, Hannah insists on being seen as normal, but clearly she possesses an extraordinary can-do attitude. Her message is disarmingly straightforward, coming as it does from “little kid type theories”: “share a little of what you have and always care about others.” Whether it’s organizing Big Boss lunches, speaking to students or to a prime minister, Hannah’s capacity to help others is huge, unflagging, and, ultimately, humbling. We all have a lot to learn from Hannah’s Story.
