In the frenzy of a classic birthday party with a shower of candy from the bursting piñata, we discover one disappointed young man without a single piece. Someone notices and transforms the memory from sour to sweet by _sharing_.

The boy was sad because he didn't get candy, but the little girl noticed he was sad and shared her candy. she is a good role model

DG from Texas NOVEMBER 16, 2016
We see this - sharing - happen all the time when we have our family pinatas. It's how our kids learn! Keep it going.

Olivia from Pinehill Lane 21337  OCTOBER 24, 2016
Loved it!

I actually had that happen to me once! I was at a birthday party when I was little and when the part with the pinata came, the other kids took all the candy before I got any! I was very sad! Nobody shared theirs with me, and I had to have the parents give me other candy that they had! I cannot believe how MEAN kids are these days! When I throw my kids parties, i'm going to make goodie bags instead of having a pinata! I don't want anyone feeling left out!

This video shows that we have to share even if we have a few. we do not have to be selfish with the others because one day we will need their help.

jose s. from glendale heights SEPTEMBER 5, 2012
That was nice to see that even kids who are 4 or 5 even know the importance of sharing.

Taly from Boca Raton,Florida SEPTEMBER 1, 2012
This one personally hit me so much! that exactly used to happened to me in piñatas when I was a kid in south america, I was very shy and all kids used to get all the candy and toys. Sometimes it was a nice kid that shared with me sometime it wasn't, The thing is that if you teach your kid to share it will make him/her a better person. This made me cry! what an awesome job they do with this commercials!

Sarah Tu Nguyen from San Gabriel, CA JULY 30, 2012
Nice! Great lesson. I love these commercials. I would like to show them to my niece. I hope she will learn how to live a better life. :)

Alexander from St.charles JUNE 16, 2012

My grandson is the boy at the end of the video, his name is Alex. His personality fits with these videos. He is really caring and sharing. He has a sensitive personality and always thinking of others. Love from his NaNa These are great commercials and ads that promotes and installs great values in all of us.

These vids kick butt. I'm only 12 but now I want to do something nice for someone else. I saw a vid on TV and went to the website and I'm glad I did. Thanks.

Barbara F. from Dalton, GA MARCH 3, 2010
These are the most heartwarming ads I have ever seen! Oh, for hundreds more- I never get tired of them! Thank you for the brightest moments of t.v. viewing. Two of my favorites are You Raise Me Up & Cafeteria (Well, actually they all are!)

Ashley W. from California FEBRUARY 26, 2010
I was that girl. I was near the edge and grabbed as much as I could because the rest of the kids were all rough boys but me and so I was nervous. However I got things I didn't want and so I passed it out to others and in return someone gave me their box of candy they didn't want. It was a great day!

Donna F. from Washington D.C. OCTOBER 1, 2009
Pinata reminded me of an incident that occurred when my daughter was about 12. On an early Halloween night, the first time I allowed her to go out trick or treating with friends, I got a call from her friend's parent. My daughter had been pushed by older kids and they stole her bag of candy. I went to pick up my very shaken young girl. How moved I was when the doorbell rang again and again -- word had gotten out about what happened, and one by one her classmates came by to offer her the pick of their candy hauls. It still brings tears to my eyes as I think of it now.

Elijah A. from Lagos, Nigeria SEPTEMBER 27, 2009
My name is Elijah, I am a graduate of Health Information Management. I have taken time to watch all these clips, they all teach sharing, love and giving a helping hand. Please, I want to be part of this campaign. How will I go about it? Thanks.

Larry S. from Henrico, NC SEPTEMBER 24, 2009
Your TV spots are just about the only thing on television worth watching! They bring a tear to my eye and a feeling of hope to my heart. Please keep up your much needed work.

All your ads make me smile and happy to see some optimism!

Kathy M. from New Jersey NOVEMBER 19, 2008
Wow, I had exactly the same experience when I was a young Brownie Scout...big room full of girls and one got bumped in the scramble. The good feeling I got from sharing with that little crying girl stays with me more than 40 years later.

Phyllis I. from Fresno, Ca NOVEMBER 19, 2008
Anything that promotes better values in our society is very worthwhile! Great job!

Tim A from Gesa Credit Union, Richland Washington NOVEMBER 19, 2008
Again, I love it. This very scenario has played itself out in front of me, you have captured and shared a powerful example. Thank you for teaching these principles.

I love it! It all starts with our children.

Anne R from Susquehanna,PA NOVEMBER 19, 2008

Jamey F. from Frankfurt, Germany NOVEMBER 18, 2008
I've seen this exact same thing happen in the past and it's really cool when little kids share with each other... especially something they love like candy.
