It all started with popular Liberty Mutual commercials featuring people helping strangers — offering up seats on a bus, holding open an elevator door, and sliding back coffee cups teetering on the edge of a table. After receiving more than 3,000 e-mails and letters praising the feel-good commercials with a pay-it-forward theme, the insurance company is now launching an online documentary project called "Growing Up" showcasing four real life stories of people trying to make the world a kinder place. One is 19-year-old Alpharetta native Jenna Gabriel, who developed a sports and theater program for children with special needs, including cerebral palsy and autism. Gabriel, who graduated from Chattahoochee High School in 2006, is studying theater at New York University. She recently worked in the production side of a show called "Knowledge and a Girl." She didn't audition for shows last semester to focus on her volunteer project.
