I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet, but I was contacted a few days ago with a request to alert my readers to the opportunity to see Tyler Perry's Good Deeds and at the same time support Covenant House, which provides food, clothing, shelter and support for homeless young people.
Here is a brief explanation from the correspondence I received:
Essentially, Good Deeds: Great Needs is an initiative to provide support for Covenant House, a non-profit organization that provides hearty meals, warm beds, and safe shelter to homeless youth. We are partnering with Gift Card Giver, an Atlanta-based organization that collects unused gift cards and distributes remaining balances to non-profit organizations, will be donating all gift cards collected through Good Deeds: Great Needs to Covenant House. Also, in support of the initiative, Lionsgate has agreed to make a financial donation in support of Covenant House each time the Good Deeds:Great Needs video is shared through www.gooddeedsgreatneeds.com
I'm certain Good Deeds is worth seeing, but I've followed Covenant House for many years, and I know for certain that this ministry is worth your support. So go see Good Deeds (it opened this weekend) and support the good deeds carried out through Covenant House.
