Our new documentary film, "I Have a Name," is currently in post-production -- a collaboration with The Chicago HELP Initiative's Founder Jacqueline C. Hayes. It focuses on dignity and respect toward those experiencing homelessness in Chicago and the organizations that nourish the whole person.
In My Brother's Shoes, Inc., produces and shares its inspiring films -- that center on healing, resilience and human connection -- with a wide range of communities through live screenings. It is an Illinois 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded by producer Joe Orlandino and writer-director Lucia Mauro in 2014 to create dialogue and a sense of community around their films addressing the many forms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the emotional side of cancer survivorship, and humanitarian stories. Its ongoing mission is raising funds for veterans with PTSD, for ovarian cancer research & support, for religious & humanitarian efforts, and to stimulate others to donate to these causes.
Funds from these events have raised money for the Pritzker Military Museum’s Veterans PTSD Resources; Toys for Tots; the Christl Burgess Memorial Fund for Ovarian Cancer Research at Loyola University Medical Center; the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition’s Stand Up To Cancer Campaign; the National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, and more.
All donations are tax-deductible.
