Every Three Seconds / by One Meaning

One Meaning will be highlighting Every Three Seconds.

Every Three Seconds is an important film that poses the provocative question: In a society where materialism reigns, what is the real secret to happiness? The director, Daniel Karslake, answers that question through the stories of five regular people who chose to take on two of the most challenging issues of our time: hunger and extreme poverty. 

The film beautifully illustrates the role of altruism as a "secret to happiness"  --and it should leave you feeling uplifted and inspired. Here are two short videos, the trailer for Every Three Seconds and an upbeat empowering film timed to the beautiful song Firework by Katy Perry who is a generous supporter of Every Three Seconds.   Very inspiring! Want to get involved?  Go to http://www.takepart.com/e3s or buy the film at http://firstrunfeatures.com/everythreeseconds.html

It is a widely held misconception that hunger and extreme poverty will always be with us. The cost of these misconceptions is one life every three seconds-meaning 30,000 die needlessly every day. Every Three Seconds is a documentary that looks at five seemingly ordinary people who take extraordinary action in their communities.    

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.
