Giving thanks for probably the best day professionally in 8 to 10 years today. At this critical holiday for Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, we scored with all local TV today, starting with 4 crews incl 3 LIVE shots at our morning breakfast. That only happens at events involving the mayor and Seahawks, we were told.
This afternoon I worked with reporter and a recovering woman who saw each other yesterday during T-giving prep piece. They last met when she was strung out on the streets. He found video from that encounter and used sound from her interview yesterday as a meal server to other recovering women. Great piece. A deeper dive into her story of recovery and redemption today.
Lastly tonight I helped an anchor-reporter through her volunteer stint at T-giving dinner at the Men’s Shelter. Her cameraman came to record her first-person experience and interviews with veteran volunteers.
Through it all we showed the love and caring of Mission staff and dozens of dedicated volunteers toward our vulnerable neighbors. God was present in a big way. Can’t top this feeling! 😀🙏🏻❤️💕
