Recently my family was in Detroit sitting around the dining room table of a woman who has given her life to loving and serving her neighborhood. She's opened her home to families who aren't sure where their next meal is going to come from and created a safe place for women to find refuge who've found themselves without a place to sleep. She's incredible, and she was one in a long line of others we'd met that week who are literally the superheroes of Detroit.
So why had I only heard how horrible Detroit was? Why was I told to be scared and fearful?
The media had literally shaped my mindset. It told me to be scared, to fear different, and quite frankly, it created a narrative that told the world, 'Detroit was hopeless.' Media is more powerful than we dare to believe and it shapes our understanding (or misunderstandings) of people, cultures, and places because it's almost solely focused on the worst in order to get ratings/viewers.
Morgan and I believe, with everything in our bones, that the world is aching for GOOD news. And for this reason, we believe the time has come to give this passion project of ours a real run. It's time to give LGHtv and the creation of world-changing media the full-time attention it deserves. Will you join us?

THE FIND | Group Lesson Plans
Through supporters like you, we're working on creating lesson plans for Elementary, Middle School, and Church Groups based on award-winning social travel, The FIND.

A Different Way to Give
Donors typically want to see low overhead costs, like staffing, but the truth is, for any project or company to be successful, full-time leadership is necessary. LGHtv has been a passion project for our family because we love this work and realize its enormous potential to change the world. This is our family's calling and we couldn't imagine ourselves doing anything else. We come alive when we're visiting with people who are changing their communities. We've tried to do other things to provide financially for our family, but in that, LGHtv gets our leftovers because by default, our time has gone to tasks that can pay our bills. These stories deserve our full-time attention. As we plan a release strategy, work on creating a weekly podcast, and plan for season four of The FIND, would you consider giving monthly or a one-time gift below to help us reach our $25,000 end-of-the-year goal?
