The Gift of Bella - Making a difference

For the second straight weekend, Bella continued its charm by landing third in weekend per screen box office receipts according to box office mojo for films with a more than 50 screens. Bella followed two big movies, American Gangster and Bee Movie. Both were highly promoted in the media for the last three weeks. For Bella to finish third is wonderful. But more wonderful than the film, is the effort being made to use this as a tool to help people think about the tragedy of abortion.

To those who have seen the movie, please encourage or invite a friend to see it. Let us hope that it will see wider distribution in the coming weeks.

Thanks for helping to make Bella known.
