Hey Everyone! 'The Briefcase' is the topic of our next Weekly Project!
The show begins by presenting families with a briefcase containing a large sum of money and a potentially life-altering decision: they can keep all of the money for themselves, or give all or part of it to another family in need.
Rarely if ever have we seen this type of struggle on national television - where couple's are looking at whether to give or receive such a life-changing amount of money.
So, it's not surprising that this show about 'Money', is causing people to blow up the internet with anger and controversy! 'The Briefcase' has the potential to break open some pretty cool issues for discussion, so let's be part of that discussion and create some Ripple's!
