Robin Baker Leacock's new film A Passion for Giving

Robin Baker Leacock new film A Passion for Giving, is rolling out throughout the country on select local PBS

stations through the end of the year including Syracuse on PBS station WCNY on Sunday, Nove. 22 at 3p.m. - just in time for Thanksgiving!

A Passion for Giving (www.passiongiving.com) is a witty, fun and inspiring documentary about the simple gesture of giving, and its importance to our world locally and globally. The film explores the people's passion

for giving through revealing interviews and candid conversations with a diverse group of people, including Run DMC's Darryl McDaniels (The Felix Organization), Alexandre De Lesseps (BlueOrchid), Gael Greene (City

Meals on Wheels), John Sykes (VH1's Save the Music), Richard Branson, Dan Aykroyd and Fran Lebowitz, among other "everyday" people.

With the tight economic times we are experiencing today, it is more needed than ever for people to help, even if it is just volunteering time in the local community. This documentary speaks to how small efforts can really make a difference. Through her work, Robin hopes to inspire others to help those who are less fortunate than themselves.
