The film “Little Red Wagon,” now available on DVD, is based on the inspirational true story of a boy’s quest to help homeless children after Hurricane Charley ripped through his hometown.
Eight-year-old Zach Bonner survived the hurricane but wanted to help the thousands of children hit hardest by the storm. So he set out with his beat-up red wagon to gather supplies from neighbors to donate to the relief fund. He ended up walking from his home to the State Capitol in Tampa and then to the Nation’s Capital and eventually across the country to get media coverage, attention, and sponsors that would help the nation’s homeless children.
