“Make Your Life Count” is the story of Neil Willenson’s journey from young social activist to the Founder of One Heartland, a national charity that greatly improves the lives of children, youth and their families who experience HIV/AIDS and other significant challenges worldwide. He has had the opportunity to meet and learn from inspiring people, and these lessons from individuals ranging from Oprah Winfrey to Martin Luther King III figure prominently into Neil’s messages.
He also shares the lessons he has learned from his most significant influences, the children of Camp Heartland, the signature program of the One Heartland organization. Through his own story and those of others, Neil hopes to inspire us all to follow our dreams and to not let our fears or doubts stop us from doing something we believe in.
