BeadforLife on The Newshour

Leave a comment

Many thanks to PBS producer Patti Parson, Associate Producer Rebecca Jacobson and the folks at The Newshour with Jim Lehrer for the wonderful story they did on BeadforLife (http://beadforlife.org) on Thursday’s program.  Every time the NGO gets national exposure of this kind the phones ring off the hook and more and more people join the fight against global poverty.  Together we are making a difference and helping families in Africa raise themselves up out of despair.  What continues to astonish me is how many different ways there are to tell this story and the way hearts continue to be touched by the women in Uganda.  Thank you Patti, Rebecca and The Newshour.
