It’s hard to believe that PureFlix.com is celebrating our 4th birthday — an amazing milestone in faith and family-friendly entertainment. In addition to serving up thousands of movies, TV shows, original series and documentaries, we have also seen incredible life change unfold.
Because of you, PureFlix.com has given more than $500,000 in cash and support to help children, veterans and adoptive families. This translates into incredible stories of hope, healing and overcoming the odds, as our generous members have helped us transform lives.
Let’s explore just some of the amazing ways you’ve helped impact lives:
Because of You, We Have Helped 14 Families Adopt
Through our incredible partnership with AdoptTogeter, we have helped 14 families adopt children. AdoptTogether is a non-profit, crowdfunding platform that bridges the gap between families who want to adopt and the children who need loving homes.

Because of You, We Have Helped Veterans Find Hope & Healing
Many veterans are in need of support after leaving the battlefield — and REBOOT Combat Recovery, part of the Reboot Alliance, seeks to strengthen spiritual defenses and enable veterans to overcome the symptoms and issues that stem from the trauma that they experienced during combat.
Rather than putting a Band-aid on these issues, REBOOT gives veterans and their families the tools needed to overcome these issues, while finding faith, hope and lasting happiness. The organization creates faith-based recovery programs in the U.S. — and your generosity has enabled us to come alongside them to help in a big way.

Watch Evan Owens, executive director of REBOOT Combat Recovery, explain his organization’s work:
"What we offer is a 12-week combat trauma healing course that's for the whole family,” Owens said.
“All of our courses are free to any combat veteran and their spouse and we provide meals and childcare and really take a look through a lens of faith — what does that teach us about how we can heal our souls from the trauma that we may sustain when we go through traumatic experiences downrange on deployments,” he said.
Because of You, We Have Helped Kids in Need
Cru Inner City, a ministry of Cru, inspires kids and families through its Power Packs ministry, an effort that sees volunteers across America pack bookbags with school supplies and other essentials in an effort to help kids prepare for the coming school year.
Last year, the PureFlix.com family sponsored hundreds of Power Packs for kids heading into the 2018-2019 school year. Kids received much-needed supplies, giving their parents peace of mind. And the effort also helped connect these kids and families to caring churches.
Here’s more about how this outreach helps kids and adults alike:
