First off – I’d like to tip my hat to Scott over at “I am. Are you?” for his post yesterday about my impending trip to the Rose Parade!
We’re going to try something a little new, starting today! Along with posting here at Revive Hope, and Scott posting at “I am. Are you?”, I’m going to do my best to keep a little video journal of my experience. In the future, I’ll try better to enunciate – and to keep it shorter… Scott implied that after 2 minutes, we all tend to fall asleep!
And, as promised in my video – here is a very cool video posted by some of the folks organizing the Donate Life Float showing the first day of decorating the 2009 float, along with some very touching interviews of donor family members… It’s “B-Roll” footage, not a finished product, but it’s a pretty neat little display of what’s going on…
And finally – a reminder! Tim Joos and I and Alison from Gift of Hope are scheduled to be on the WGN News at 9pm (Chicago channel 9) in a “Chicago’s Very Own” segment about Samantha and Kari and organ donation. The segment is tentatively scheduled to run on Friday, December 19th during the 9pm news hour.
