My niece was on the Today Show

October 19, 2009

So I realize this is totally out of character, but in the spirit of helping out my very awesome niece, I’m soliciting your help, dear readers who are probably wondering where the heck I’ve been for the past three months…

But back to Meg… the short version is click here and vote for Meg Richey, a Charlottesville grade student who is a semifinalist for the Kid Reporter contest (she’s the first video listed).  For the longer version, here’s the note from her mom and dad, which I think says it all!

Meg needs your vote on Monday, October 19th at the TODAY show (todayshow.com) -please help her reach her dream.  Please also help us spread the word through Facebook, email, Twitter, etc.
 
In Kindergarten, Meg announced that she wanted to be on the TODAY show, specifically as a sidekick to Matt Lauer on his “Where in the World” series.  She has talked about it ever since.
 
A few weeks ago, the TODAY show announced a contest to select its next “Kid Reporter.”  On Wednesday, October 14th, the producers chose Meg as a semifinalist and invited Meg to be on the TODAY show Monday, October 19th.  The segment is supposed to air at 9:15 am.
 
Meg is competing against three other kids.  America votes on who the winner is.  MEG NEEDS YOUR VOTE AT THE TODAY SHOW (TODAYSHOW.COM) THIS MONDAY OCTOBER 19TH AFTER 9:15 AM (not before).  WE’RE BEGGING YOU TO PLEASE HELP MEG BY FORWARDING THIS REQUEST TO YOUR ELECTRONIC NETWORK THROUGH FACEBOOK, EMAIL, TWITTER, ETC.
 
Meg thanks you, and Brett and Debbie thank you.  The voting closes Tuesday October 20th at 5:00 pm.  The semifinalist results will be announced next Wednesday, October 21st.  Thanks so much to everyone.  More info at the site set up by Meg’s friend: VOTE FOR MEG.
