“Change for a Dollar”. It can be so incredibly simple. A hug. A kind word. A small, meaningful gift. A coin. An unexpected act of mercy. It can be so simple to change the life of another human being...if we're only paying attention. Are we? You and I? Paying attention? In her debut as a writer and director, veteran actress Sharon Wright has crafted a heartfelt, beautifully realized short film evolving around an obviously homeless man (Robert P. Campbell) whose actions on this one particular day transcend his seemingly humble reality with an even more humbling presence of simple grace, precious kindness and silent service. One of the true joys of Change for a Dollar is that Wright wisely realizes that what is happening on screen goes beyond the spoken word and, as a result, much of the film itself is performed with nary a word spoken. Instead, Wright relies on the power of the story itself and the actors who are bringing it to life.

The NHDTZD's mission is to create a safety culture where even one roadway fatality is one too many. Zero fatalities is the only acceptable number and of course, the only number we can all live with.
