Tons of toys and over 100 bicycles were gifted to kids during the Winter Wonderland program put on by The Howey, Hudson, Lowe Foundation in Atlanta. Also on hand for the 5th year in a row was popular radio personality and film writer/producer and director Tim Greene (front left – WWW.TIMGREENEFILMS.COM) and National Black Radio Hall Of Fame/Atlanta Chapter President Marsha “Radio Lady” George (front right) to help motivate the future broadcasting and filmmaking stars of tomorrow by introducing them to podcasting and short subject filmmaking. “These kids are amazing, and thanks to Oprah Winfrey starting The Oprah Winfrey Network and Tyler Perry building one of the world’s largest film studios, over 90 percent of the kids now want to build and own their own broadcasting & filmmaking studio as well as create content for their generation. I let them know that the sky used to be the limit but now it is just the starting point of their super successful lives. The kids even knew how to synchronize the handheld Gimbal (camera stabilizer) to their cell phones within seconds. Years ago on my 15 city tours kids wanted to be rappers, now they want to own the record label and the building that label is housed in” say’s Greene. To date Tim Greene has given out over 400 laptop computers to kids in underserved communities nationwide.
