Oh, dear Caine!
You have me in tears.
I realize I may be a late arrival to Caine’s Arcade, but it was well worth the trip.
Yesterday, Debi Lilly posted a note about Caine on Facebook, and I saw a little news spot on his amazing arcade. And, then tonight, Seth Godin, sent out a little note about Caine’s Arcade, the short film.
I decided I should check this video out.
And, I did.
It was so worth it.
It takes 10 minutes to watch this masterpiece of social good.
Warning: it may bring you to tears, or put a smile on your face.
At the end of the video I couldn’t help but donate to the Caine Scholarship Fund.
Hey, if a 9-year-old can build an arcade out of cardboard boxes, old toys and tape — what could he do with the college education of his choice?
And, if a filmmaker can turn his story about a young boy’s dream into a social media phenom, and a college fund, then I say this:
We’ve never been more connected.
And, there is a REASON why.
To be fearless.
To show more love.
To help each other.
Here is one 9-year-old boy and a filmmaker to prove it.
A 9 year old boy – who built an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto part store – is about to have the best day of his life.
