“We strive to disseminate the core message of a purpose driven life and its benefits to society as widely as possible. Both the movie and my recently released book, ‘Discover your Purpose’, written in support of the film and the National Purpose Campaign are tools to improve the quality of life amongst South Africans,” says Cronjé.
