Preaching to Oprah’s Choir

Preaching to Oprah’s Choir

It has been a week of decision making ever since it came to my attention that Oprah was looking for people to host television shows on her new network. What finally convinced me to take action and make the audition video was the one comment that has been repeatedly expressed following my blogs here on Care2.com. “Delia, you are preaching to the choir,” say many of you who already know so much about the state of our health and environment, while so many others are struggling to deal with the stress of their everyday lives, with little time for environmental issues.

After considerable thought, following Oprah’s announcement, I realized it was time to introduce the two choirs, Oprah’s and Care2′s, and create a television show that asks the big questions of our time and then sets out to find some answers. Giving the show the tentative title of Think Global, Act Local, my intention is to highlight how concerned individuals and groups are dealing with the issues of our food supply, clean air, recycling, energy use, preserving our natural resources, caring for our children, and caring for our elders, to name a few.

Individuals and their communities are already exploring solutions to these challenges and meeting them on a local, sustainable level. Why not learn from what they are doing so America’s communities can benefit from this knowledge. I would also add that it is not only humans being affected by these challenges, but all species, including our family pets. My two pups, Maya and Seamus, will, no doubt, play a featured roll in the series as well.

So why am I telling you all this? Well, naturally to inspire you to take a moment and cast your vote on Oprah’s website. Watching the video will take less than 3 minutes of your time, and I’ve edited the piece so you won’t have to hear the drone of airplanes drowning me out, but you may have to squint a bit because of the sun’s glare. If you are ready to increase the size of the choir, made up of individuals committed to finding solutions to our personal and environmental health issues, then click HERE and let’s get the show on the road.

I think Delia's show would be fabulous beyond words. I voted for her once, then went back and found in the FAQ section that we can vote for her as many times as we want.
So, go folks! Let's get her caught up, and then we'll put her in the lead! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! Vote from here, vote from your business, vote from your home!
