Episode Description

When you help a child, you can change the world. This week on BetterWorldians Radio, we’re talking with Hollywood filmmaker Peter Samuelson who is making a big difference in the lives of children in need.

Samuelson will discuss how his experience as a filmmaker gave him the skills to make a real impact in the lives of children around the world by founding charities such as Starlight Children’s Foundation, First Star, and Everyone Deserves a Roof (EDAR). Samuelson will share some of his success stories, like enlisting the support of heavy hitters Steven Spielberg and General Norman Schwarzkopf, and will tell listeners how they, too, can help make the world a better place.

Tune in every week to hear new guests share how they are making the world a better place and to learn how you can become a BetterWorldian!
