UPDATE: Ugh, I'm sad to report that our news story has been preempted by the Swine Flu cases in Marin county. I just got off the phone with Carolyn Tyler, the reporter. She said the piece looks great and hopefully it will air tomorrow. So still keep those fingers crossed...
***Tonight (scratch that, hopefully tomorrow) at 6pm, the local ABC affiliate KGO 7 will be airing a piece about K and the lack of services for women and children in her situation, and how the blogging community--meaning YOU-- reached out to help a family in desperate need when the city could not.
Let's keep our fingers crossed that something extra good comes of this tonight. I hope that we get enough donations to make sure this little family has a nice apartment to live in until permanent housing becomes available or that the powers that be finally realize that enough isn't being done to help homeless mothers and their children.
Thank you to each and every one of you who has cared to donate, to email a letter of encouragement or to tell your friends, because it's through your support and sharing this story that we were able to attract the attention of some people that might finally do something to make a huge difference in the lives of this family.
Thank you thank you thank you. Wish us luck!
