"Do you go the extra mile? Sure, you could make a dinner reservation or buy flowers to show others how much you care. Or you could be really, really 'extra'. We have chosen to call this film ‘The Extra Mile’ for two reasons… Firstly, to honour Oom Hollie who captivated us with his incredible strength of body, mind and spirit. At the age of 85, he continues to greet each day with a smile, intent on making the most every single moment. Secondly, to celebrate the remote community of Heuningvlei, who stand by each through all the ups and downs of life. They truly embody the spirit of Ubuntu - I am who I am because of who we all are. They remind us of the divine spark of goodness inherent within each being. Whether it is empowering others to continue to pursue their dreams or encouraging people not to let life's tragedies derail hope, we can inspire others to keep giving life their best. Let's go the extra mile! Filmed in Heuningvlei, Cederberg, South Africa Featuring Oom Hollie." from the video introduction.
As Oom Hollie reminds us we are all living on borrowed time!
