Not only is The King’s Speech an amazing, Oscar-winning film, but it’s also inadvertently helping out people who stutter by increasing visibility of the condition.
According to The Chronicle of Philanthropy:
“In February the Stuttering Foundation of America received $25,000 in donations versus the $10,000 it received in February 2010. "So that's tremendous," [Fraser] says. "We've seen an increase in new donations. Something like 80 percent from last week, from people that had never donated before."
This is awesome! Films that serve a greater purpose are the best!
