Carolina, thank you for capturing this work on film. It's important for teens to know what a huge difference they can make. To see their dedication, even in the rain, is truly inspiring for someone at any age.

I loved this video, I was not aware of how many high school kids were giving their time to help the community. It makes me feel good about this new generation. Great job!
