Doug "Fresh" McLean, the smart, big-hearted, young man who made such an amazing impression in the documentary "First Person", died on January 14, a few months shy of his 23rd birthday.

You can make a contribution in Doug's name to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Pennsylvania. (Make out the check to "Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Pennsylvania", write "In Honor of Douglas McLean" on the memo line, and mail to: Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania, 123 S. Broad Street, Suite 2180, Philadelphia, PA 19109. Or, you can donate online here --and be sure to scroll all the way down to the "Special Instructions" box to indicate that the donation is in honor of Doug McLean.)

You can also honor Doug by seeing "First Person", Ben Herold's award-winning documentary about six Philadelphia public high school kids trying to make it to college.
