THE BEAR is on the move around St. Louis . . .
The first weekend in March - Kalen McAllister, Founder of Laughing Bear Bakery - found herself being followed by a film crew from New York City! Kalen, a Buddhist priest, was chosen as a subject by a documentary team because of her compassion for and tireless efforts to help ex-offenders. She is one of only five women internationally they are concentrating on. They also interviewed George Lombardi (Board member and former Director of the Missouri Department of Corrections); Mike Gann (Board President); and, Pete Wallace (Board member and Kitchen Supervisor) for this documentary which will be shown in NYC, San Francisco and hopefully in St. Louis. This is a real credit to Kalen and her altruism. She is simply extraordinary. You can follow the progress of this film, see photos and read updates on their Facebook Page: On The Buddha's Path.
