George Bailey, in It’s A Wonderful Life, thought life was no longer worth his existence. He felt that his family, his friends, just everyone in general would be better off if he had never been born. Have you ever felt that way? Luckily, George met Clarence who taught him that his life touches everyone and that his life is worth a lot.

Everyone has a story to tell. Whether your story is from George Bailey’s perspective of being overwhelmed, or from Clarence’s prospective of lifting someone up; your life and who you touch matters. We want to hear your “George Bailey” story.
