Summary, etc.: In a society where materialism reigns, what is the real secret to happiness? Award-winning filmmaker Daniel Karslake (For the Bible Tells Me So) tells the unforgettable stories of five regular folks – a boy, a college student, a thirty-something and two seniors – whose lives went from ordinary to extraordinary based on one simple decision: to engage. Each chose action over apathy, and in the process, each one has had a significant and lasting impact on two of the most challenging, yet solvable, issues of our time: hunger and extreme poverty. Every Three Seconds is about doing well by doing good – about changing the world and changing your own life in the process. "Every Three Seconds is an empowering, beautiful act of compassion that will move you to do what evolution has designed us to do -- take care of our fellow human beings in small acts of grace." - Dacher Keltner, Professor of Psychology, UC Berkeley and Founding Director, The Greater Good Science Center. "Every Three Seconds is an extraordinary film. It takes complex issues and challenges facing our world today and makes them accessible to everyone, from first-graders to retirees. What's more, it takes you on a journey alongside regular AND inspiring individuals who are making the world a better place -- in simple, friendly, and incredibly powerful ways. Everybody should see this movie!" - April Rinne, Sharing Economy Expert, Advisor and Social Innovator.
