Keep Campbell Live
The following is a repost from my daughter, she wrote this and I share it with you
I can tell you one thing, Media works needs to keep Campbell Live. New Zealanders need their issues addressed, need them to be herd and need a voice who can speak for the ones who can’t be heard and Campbell Live has done that.
He has changed lives and made New Zealand whole in a way that others have never been able to fix. Ever since I was young I grew up watching Campbell because my parents always did but only now do I realize the impact he has made. When I was younger I had buck teeth, I wasn’t confident in myself at all, I was afraid of meeting new people and even buying something from the shop was huge for me. A couple of years later when I was starting progress in my teeth from seeing an orthodontist, Campbell did an interview on Evan and his major buck teeth. He raised over 100,000 dollars which payed for his treatment, the rest of the money being able to pay for his younger sisters teeth the family alongside Campbell proceeded to start up a charity that paid for children’s dental work in new Zealand.
For that one story, he changed Evans life, his sisters life, and 100s of other kids who’s parents couldn’t afford to pay for their kids dental treatment.
Lunch Box day, he worked together with Kids Can to provide lunches for children all over New Zealand. Imagine that, 1000s of kids didn’t go hungry that day, or in the near future.
Can’t you see New Zealand? It’s not National who has done all this! What good have they done? Open your eyes and stop giving credit to the ones who have only taped up the crack on the fence but give a pat on the back to the guy who has replaced the whole fence.
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata! What is the most important thing in life? It is people! It is people! It is people!
Thank you John Campbell, for helping New Zealand and focusing on the people.You have made a difference and influenced me to make one too.
