The center of this incredible opportunity is a Premiere Red Carpet Event that presents your ministry as the star of the evening. 

Here’s how it works.

Your current donors and volunteers invite prospective donors and volunteers to a special Premiere Red Carpet Evening and Showing of “Same Kind of Different as Me”.

This is a powerful movie performance of how serving the homeless can change a heart, marriage and a community. This movie is a dramatic portrayal of love, forgiveness, compassion, giving and serving. It powerfully demonstrates that serving the least of these, those in need, the homeless and helpless, can be a healing balm for society’s many maladies.

Watch the trailer!

It’s a story of a dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery; an upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel; a gutsy woman with a stubborn dream; a story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.

It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana…and an East Texas honky-tonk…and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda…an upscale New York gallery…a downtown dumpster…a Texas ranch.

“SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME” is the story of an international art dealer Ron Hall (Kinnear) who must befriend a dangerous homeless man (Hounsou) in order to save his struggling marriage to his wife (Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives. Voight plays Hall's father, with whom he reconciles thanks to the revelations of his new life.
