As the economy declined, the couple was inspired to use their money in a more meaningful way. They were looking for the return on their investment to show up in the world rather than in their portfolio, and were excited to learn about EVERY THREE SECONDS. Sheri and Mark decided this is a project that will make an impact on ending extreme poverty and committed to getting the film produced.
