The Spread Your Wings Project began with a very special young man, Benjamin Daniel Breedlove, who passed on Christmas Day, 2011 at the age of eighteen. In his last days, Ben privately created a two-part video, entitled, “This is My Story,” where he used flashcards to tell the world about his near-death experiences and the peace and hope of Heaven. This video went viral and has had over 15 million views. We were led to Ben and the Breedlove family, and inspired to continue sharing Ben’s message through our work. Watch the video and read the full story here.
