As I’m prepping for my interview with Roop Raj from Fox-2 Detroit, for the Gleaners Radiothon, I noticed on his Facebook page that he has a strong aversion to wearing hats. In fact he has not worn a winter hat in over thirty years. So I wanted to try and create some breaking news at least for his social media because he recently posted a long blog about his loathing for hats.
After telling our audience about Roop’s dislike of hats, only eating lemon and vanilla cakes, and of course his love of community, and support of Gleaners, I pulled out one of our logo WOMC skullys at the end of the interview holding it over his head and asked if he would put in on. Roop, looking at the hat with disdain, turned it into an incentive to call in and donate, saying he will put it on if we could get some Hunger Heros. The phones lit-up and added to the amazing total of over 2 million dollars.
So this picture will probably be the only time you see Roop in a hat. Roop you da man, it was a lot of fun! Thank you for putting on the WOMC hat and showing what a community servant you are.
Thank you Detroit for coming through again and helping you own here at home who are in desperate need.
