Talking about 3B on Good Day Philadelphia

photo on good day philadelphiaSo I was a little bit nervous leading up to the time I was going to be on Good Day Philadelphia, but once I was there and set up I felt better. This time I talked to Mike Jerrick @MikeFOX29 and to Sheinelle Jones @SheinelleFox29 and they were both very nice. I had a lot of fun. My Mom says they let me talk for awhile but to me it felt like it went by so fast.

I was able to show them all the different bags I have made which includes the regular healthy snack bag, the kid’s bag with a book, the winter bag with warm clothes and the work force bag which has toiletry items. I told them all about how I have given bags to the Emmanuel Dining Room patrons and to the Christina School District. I let them know that the UD chapter of Alpha Phi Omega has been very helpful.

So while we were there my Mom took pictures for Facebook and posted them using her phone. But when I got home and was able to put something on Facebook and Twitter there were so many people already commenting! We even received donations through the Facebook page. And my Mom got an email from a man named Mr. Harkin who has a store called Princess Gifts in Philadelphia and he has 200 books to donate to my project.

It makes me feel so happy to know people want to help 3B grow!

Thank you to everyone and many, many thank yous to Fox 29 and the Good Day Philadelphia team!

First Alpha Phi Omega Bag Packing Event

Alpha Phi Omega Bag Packing EventDo you see all these cool people in the photo? Those are my new friends, also known as, Alpha Phi Omega at the University of Delaware.

Mr. Kyle said that around 90 people helped out with our first joint 3B bag packing event. Their fraternity collected $1,000 worth of items to put in my Brae’s Brown Bags. We made our first workforce bags which included the toiletry items: toothbrush, toothpaste and travel size deodorants. There were 70 workforce bags made and I hope to give them to the Family Promise organization but I need to get them all together with inserts first.

We also packed 179 regular Brae’s Brown Bags, but I’m going to turn 30 of those into children bags where I will add a book for a school-aged person and I will be giving those bags to my school district, the Christina School District, this coming Friday so they can be handed out for Thanksgiving to some families in need.

DSC_0004My brother, my Mom and my Gram and Pop Pop all came to the event. It was in the same room where I gave a speech a couple of weeks ago in Purnell Hall. One of the girls who is in Alpha Phi Omega, I don’t remember her name, but she gave me a fist bump!

The whole afternoon was really great. It was kind of crazy with a lot of people but it was also really good because all of those people came to help.

When we went outside to pack the car with the bags we had to put some of them into my Gram and Pop Pop’s car because Mommy’s Jeep ran out of room.

Next up I will be going to Philadelphia to the Fox News station to be on the Good Day Philadelphia Morning Show on Tuesday, November 26, 2013! Be sure to watch!

My time on Good Day Philadelphia

Mommy and Me on set

I was on Good Day Philadelphia today which is a show you can watch on Fox News. I met a lot of people including Mike Jerrick, he is a news anchor.

Ganesh, the winner from Pennsylvania was on also. We had our winning recipes with us and Mike taste tested them. He really liked my dish the Tortilla Bowl Deluxe.

Mike Jerrick is very funny. He made us laugh.

It seemed to go very fast and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to be on TV.
