Donations needed to finish "American Bear" film

A film based on one couple's search for hospitality in America is spurring kindness among people across the country.

In 2010, Greg Grano and Sarah Sellman stopped in Montana for their cross-country documentary on the most hospitable place in the United States.

The film is in production, but the two are passing along a few items they were given along the way in exchange for donations for the film.

They say they are in need of another $5,000 for a project whose goal is kindness.

"Creating this community who is all interested in doing good deeds and being optimistic and helping others," said Grano. "That is kind of what our film embodies, but since the film isn't complete, we're really interested in spreading that into a couple different areas."

The couple hopes to have the film complete by the summer 2012.
