You have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch a glimpse of these four: (from left to right in the above picture) JuJu Chang, George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, and Sam Champion. They’re the hosts/anchors of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” and when they’re not giving the country a wake-up call, they’re doing good in the community.
In 2007, Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer. She waged a public battle against the deadly disease, and has even published a book detailing her struggle with it. She has traveled to the Middle East with former First Lady Laura Bush “who was on a mission to raise awareness of breast cancer in the Muslim world,” according to the GMA Web site. She has received awards for her advocacy from the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
GMA’s weatherman, Sam Champion, honors his last name through the good works he does. He is known to be a “champion” of many causes, often in a prominent role at charitable events. He was Grand Marshal for the Multiple Sclerosis Society Fall Bike Tour. Champion served as chairman of the 25th annual March of Dimes NYC WalkAmerica, and he emceed for “Stopping AIDS Together,” part of the Sunday by the Bay event.
JuJu Chang is a founding board member of the Korean American Community Foundation.
With the help of other fellow Greek-Americans, George Stephanopoulos founded The Next Generation Initiative, “a leadership program aimed at getting students involved in public affairs” (Wikipedia).
I will see if I can take a letter directly to the GMA studios while I’m in Manhattan! Please E-mail me if any of you are planning to visit New York City while I’m there: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to visit Impact Your World to find out how you can help the survivors of the Haiti and Chile earthquakes.
Thanks, always, for all your support, and please wish me and my parents a safe trip tomorrow morning! I will update Twitter/Facebook as soon as I can when I get there.
