Video: Give Every Day Reality TV

The weeks before launching GiveEveryDay were crammed full of preparation. We had truck and trailer maintenance, passports to renew, mailing addresses to update, a house to rent, and what felt like (at the time) an unsurmountable list of things to accomplish before we left.  I worked full-time until the end of November so nearly everything happened in December and January. We departed Tucson, AZ on February 6th, 2011.

In the midst of all the chaos, we filmed part of our story on our iphones. 12 Forward approached us and turned the footage into a TV show sizzle for a prospective reality TV show. The company submitted it to the Oprah Women's Network...and they almost said yes. The network even delayed our departure date as the video went through several committees. In the end, the show didn't come to pass - but we thought we'd share the promo video with you.

Our goal was never to get on TV so the result wasn't a disappointment, but I'm glad we have this documentation. It's fun to look back and watch how the story unfolded, to remember how God has taken care of us every step of the way. Keep in mind that we filmed it ourselves (on our phones) in-between our every day be nice.

Our family spent 2011 traveling the USA in an RV, striving to intentionally "give every day" for the glory of God. We interviewed CEOs of nonprofits and served alongside over 40 organizations and churches.
