Coming Attraction: Early 'Cinderella' Screening Raises Funds for 10-Year-Old's Foundation

If you and your kids are looking to catch a sneak peek of Disney's live-action version of "Cinderella" -- and the new "Frozen Fever" short -- here's your chance to check out the movie and do good at the same time.

On Sunday, March 8, there will be a screening of the film at the Vista Theatre in Los Feliz at 9:45 a.m. to benefit I Dream of Fish, a foundation to combat world hunger created by 10-year-old Miles Lin.

I Dream of Fish provides food production systems called Aquaponics to developing communities around the world. The system features fish in a tank on the bottom and plants on the top -- both of which go toward feeding malnourished families.

Amazing, right?!

Miles writes on his site that he fell in love with fish when he was 3 years old, and his parents taught him that he should share his passion with others -- not just keep it to himself. He wanted to use fish to help the rest of the world, and so he founded I Dream of Fish when he was 9 years old.

His first fundraiser pulled in more than $37,000!

So if you would like to attend the screening -- and help out developing communities -- visit the "Cinderella/"I Dream of Fish Eventbrite page to buy tickets and donate. You can even make a donation without attending the screening.

Way to go, Miles!
