Awesome Shine A Light Series On Today

A little background first....



TODAY unveils a new outreach project called Shine a Light, a year-long initiative focused on service and giving back to communities in need.

Each anchor will pick a worthy cause to support throughout the year.


Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will team up to build playgrounds.

Al Roker will join a U.S.O. tour, Natalie Morales hopes to run the Boston Marathon and Willie Geist will make over a homeless shelter.

Carson Daly will spotlight childhood hunger, and Tamron Hall will focus on raising awareness about victims of domestic abuse.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will "Shine a Light" on family bonds and lifting sick kids' spirits.

And you can join to help make an impact. Like our Shine a Light TODAY Facebook page to track our anchors' progress, and tell us on social media how you're pitching in using the hashtag #ShineALight.




fyi, This started in January... now with that said;

As part of TODAY's Shine a Light series, a campaign to support worthy causes throughout the year, Hoda Kotb has chosen to lift the spirits of children with cancer and raise money for pediatric cancer. You can help. Visit Crowdrise.com/Hoda to learn more.
All proceeds benefit pediatric cancer.

If you want to give by check, please make it out to the American Cancer Society and send to:

American Cancer Society
P.O. Box 22718 Oklahoma City, OK 73123-1718.

Please put "Shine A Light" and the code "1-4SL1JAR" in the memo section.








It's surprising how cheerful it can be at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, but in the battle against pediatric cancer, smiles are as important as drugs and surgery.

That's why Hoda Kotb, herself a breast cancer survivor, felt it was so important to bring a little joy to the children being treated there. So with a little help, she launched "Project Truly Brave": a musical collaboration between Sara Bareilles and Cyndi Lauper starring a beautiful and brave group of kids fighting cancer.

All of the adorable children who helped make the collaboration special appeared on TODAY Thursday, beaming with pride after seeing the video and their performances for the first time.


Lizzy Hennessy is a 9-year-old patient at the hospital who was diagnosed with leukemia this summer.

"We never expected our beautiful, smart athletic daughter to be battling cancer," Lizzy's mom, Mary, told TODAY. "It was a pretty bad summer, but a highlight of it was being involved in Hoda's music video."





Cheyenne is another one of the young patients fighting cancer, and some days she says she wishes she could be invisible. "Because then I could hide easily, so I wouldn't have to take my medicine," she told Hoda.





The staff let Hoda take over their cancer center and work with the kids to film a music video to help raise awareness and money.
The kids were all in, and the experience gave them a chance to show off their singing and dancing skills and most importantly, their smiles.

OK, I'll check this out, but I'm blaming you on my crying fit in my office. Hell, I've already cried once today. Why not just scare everyone away from my office, and maybe I'll actually get some work done for once...

Last month was Pediatric Cancer Awareness. I'll bring forth my PSA from then ....

The Children's Oncology Group is where I direct anyone who asks me where to donate. They are the central body in America heading research for treatments of Peds cancers and they help provide "pathways" on how to best treat patient's based on many factors and which "arm" they fall into based on their progression.

Watching these children cannot be translated into words. My heart just flutters when I'm around them.
