What Matters? Trailer

What Matters? is an award-winning documentary about three friends, two idealistic activists and one skeptic, attempting to live in extreme poverty (on $1.25 a day) across 3 continents. The adventure takes a devastating turn when two of them survive a deadly plane crash in Africa, and all three must fight to finish what they started.

How can I make a difference?

This talk was given at TEDxGatewayArch. In his talk, Dan Parris explains that we can make a difference in the world through our time, talents, and treasure. We should make a difference because something about this world breaks our heart, and we make a difference  by doing what makes us come alive. These are Y2Q (Your 2 Questions) and by intersecting their answers, you will find how you should make a difference in this world.
