Daytime Gives Back was showcased on the Daytime Emmys this year for it’s work with Feed the Children. Soaps stars in attendance were Susan Lucci, Kelly Monaco and Tony Geary. Their inspiring documentary about the trip to Kenya was so moving, many audience members were in tears. TG couldn’t contain his emotions when talking about the children that touched his life. The documentary, “Kenya, How We See It” will be available to view in full on Fox’s Reality Channel (TBA). Unfortunately, Soap Net passed on airing the entire special because they “don’t do documentaries”. I personally think that PERHAPS they could have made an exception in this case. It would have been a great thing to bring awareness and maybe much needed ratings to the station. Just sayin’
Clip of the emotional doc during the Emmys incase you missed it:
We also saw a food drive in NYC that had many daytime stars helping with the distribution and charity right here at home. Check out We Love Soaps for details including some great video.
BTW, Twitter played a big role in getting the word out about this drive. Daytime Emmys and producer Jim Romanovich kept fans updated with tweets, video streams and twitpics.
I’ll keep you posted on the date for the documentary airing! Next charity up: Kim McCoullough and Jason Thomson walk for AIDS LA… (Oct 18th) you know I’ll be promoting the heck out of that soon!
