Secret Millionaire: My New Addiction

March 23, 2011

Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about ABC’s new show Secret Millionaire.  I first heard about the show through my coaching network, as several of the Millionaires are motivational speakers or coaches I’ve followed for a long time.  I knew I’d immediately take to this show, since my own experience with tithing has had such a profound effect on my life.

For those who are unfamiliar, Secret Millionaire is a reality TV show that features 10 different Millionaires who go undercover pretending to do a documentary on volunteering in some of the poorest areas of the country.  Their task is to find ‘unsung heroes’ in those communities who they’d like to give a portion of their fortune away to.

I know the premise may sound a little hokey, but I quite honestly balled my eyes out on the first episode watching Dani Johnson interact with the Love Kitchen Ladies (Ellen and Helen – sister, age 82).  It’s really powerful to see poverty up-close in the US and see the inspiring folks who are out there trying to do something about it.  You can’t help but be moved by these beautiful stories!

3 of the 10 episodes have aired thus far.  You can watch those you missed at HULU.  Check your ABC line-up to find when upcoming episodes air in your city.  And in the event I haven’t convinced you to watch it yet, do check out this 2 minute clip of Dani interacting with the Love Kitchen Ladies.  Pretty sure that’s what love personified looks like…

    The first episode with Dani took place here in Knoxville! 2 of the urban schools I teach at are right around the corner from the Love Kitchen. I am amazed that some of my kids can make it to school despite their home environment and daily challenges :-(

  2. I’m a sap. I just cried watching the youtube commercial… (And I don’t even have pregnancy as an excuse…)

    How do you get Hulu to stream for you? Is it because you’re FS?

    What a great concept this show looks to be!
