Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Get off our Donkey (GOOD) project?

Silent Images produced the GOOD film series, which is comprised of seven 10-minute videos, to describe the following areas of need in Charlotte, North Carolina: human trafficking, high school dropouts, homeless children, abortion, prisoner re-entry, refugees, and the elderly. Each video introduces the need, provides fact-based information as well as personal testimonies, includes the names of local organizations that are taking action, and gives viewers several practical ways to respond to these needs.

Who should watch the GOOD series?

Many Charlotte-area organizations, schools, and churches are using the GOOD series to educate and motivate people to take action. And while the videos in the GOOD series target seven areas of need in Charlotte, the needs presented are relevant to most cities in the United States. The subject material is appropriate for adults and many teenagers, but discretion is advised for young viewers.
