    Stars of Disney's 'Game Plan' Paint Murals With L.A. Kids

    Posted: February 4, 2008

    It was a messy job, but the cast of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s The Game Plan was up for it.

    Half a dozen stars from the film (released on DVD Jan. 22) helped more than 60 South Central Los Angeles sixth-graders paint three murals at their school Feb. 1, a mundane task on the surface with a more important message underneath.

    “All they had to say was The Game Plan and ‘charity,’ and I’m there,” actor Brian J. White said at Bethune Middle School. “Children for Children instills in the kids initiative and inventiveness on their level, and that’s why we’re here. If we can get into them the idea of helping others, it carries on to when they’re adults.

    “Twelve-year-olds are like 21-year-olds when we grew up, and they’ll be taking care of the world one day.”

    Children for Children is a nonprofit organization founded by parents in 1996. It’s mission is to foster community involvement and social responsibility among young people, especially those in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Reaching more than 50,000 kids per year, the organization gave 60 kids on this day in L.A. a lesson in working together and beautifying their school.

    “The Game Plan

    To start the event, the children were gathered together and given T-shirts from the charity, while the stars — including actors Morris Chestnut, Jamal Duff and Tubbs, one of two dogs to play Spike in The Game Plan — mingled.

    The kids waved to child actor Madison Pettis (who waved back and took photos with the kids), the teachers chatted with the other stars, even a Los Angeles police officer was snapping pictures.

    “Are you ready to paint some school!?” Pettis screamed to the crowd, who gave her an equally loud affirmative.
    The Game Plan topped the national DVD sales charts the week ended Jan. 27, selling 67% more than its nearest competitor. It took home $89.7 million in theaters. Bonus features include deleted scenes, a blooper reel with sports announcer Marv Albert, several featurettes and a mock ESPN segment.

    What a wonderful thing to do! Thanks for posting this bit of news!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

      Thanks Ms. D! It's a particularly good thing since one of the stars of the film is a child, it makes the connection for the kids extra special and inspiring to.
