At LDS Philanthropies we work with the world’s best people. People like you. Those who share of their time, talents, and treasure. Those who care about helping others. The poor. The needy. The sick and afflicted. Whether in your neighborhood or across the globe. It is for people like you - givers like you - that we share this modern twist on the age-old story of The Widow’s Mite. We hope you enjoy this short film and accept with it our heartfelt appreciation.
