Champions For Change Feature CNN Anchors And Correspondents Connecting With People Who Are Making A Positive Difference In This World

I thought I would share a special programming event which will be featured on CNN on Saturday, June 23rd at 8:00 PM.

If you are a parent, grandparent or guardian searching for positive reinforcement for all that is good and decent in the world, one which you can share with your child or grandchild, then look no further. This program has it all.

Hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Champions For Change travels the globe, highlighting CNN Journalists and their special causes and issues, connecting them with people who have truly made a difference in the lives of so many.

Previews were aired throughout the week, but Saturday’s program brings all of the personal journeys together in a one-hour special. It is a truly magical viewing experience and everyone, young and old, will gain incredible perspective into the dedication and fortitude of global volunteers.

I was particularly touched by Anderson Cooper’s visit to Haiti. He has an extraordinary ability to embed himself into the lives of the people he is interviewing. It is a special, God-given gift mingled with an insatiable sense of wonder and appreciation of all that is good and precious in this world.

However, congratulations to all the journalists and producers on embarking on such a beautiful and heartwarming journey.

Also, as a side note to all the Carrie Underwood fans: her single, “Champion” has been featured in the promo video. Check it out below:
