Here are the links for the news stories that followed our iPod Donation. I’m not sure if there are others or not.
I was honestly so shocked to see so many news people there when we arrived. I knew the hospital sent out a media blast, but I thought maybe one station would want to cover it. There were many.
I think the media being there helped me some. I was able not to think quite so much about the painful memories, but more so about what good the project would do. It was also so nice to hear people agree. Brent did have a harder time than he expected to.
I think this CBS one may be my favorite. It takes a second for the video to load- http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/06/07/parents-give-gift-of-music-to-dallas-hospital-as-a-thank-you/
This is one from KVUE, which I believe is out of Austin. I didn’t have a link just the video so I put it on my you tube account.
There was a video that we saw on Fox the evening after the donations, but I can’t find it online.
Not a huge fan of myself on video, at all, but of course I did it for a good cause 🙂
Here is the story on the Children’s homepage – http://www.childrens.com/giving/why-give/donor-stories/grateful-parents-give-ipods.aspx
I have some sweet pictures to post as well as share the awesome gift the hospital gave us in memory of Cohen.
Disclaimer: because I did receive a rude comment.
** I did mention my blog, to the news reporters, and how we have so graciously received donations from many generous people and fundraisers. They used the content they had from video and of course, they didn’t use everything I said nor quoted me in written stories for everything. I wish they would have mentioned it in some form or fashion because as I’ve mentioned many of times, we are SO SO thankful. About of the iPod Touches were paid for from donations.
