I work for KCTS 9 and we’ve been posing some fun “challenges” to the community to help lift spirits. I thought I’d share the latest if you’d like to participate. :)
At KCTS 9, we believe that our COMMUNITY is our greatest strength in times of adversity. The novel coronavirus has significantly changed the ways we interact with our family, friends and neighbors. In an effort to spread some joy during the difficult moment we’re all living in, we’re launching the OUR HEARTS LIVE HERE initiative. In the coming weeks, we’ll seek out and promote ways to safely bring our community together, something that’s core to our mission.
In March we asked you, our community, to decorate your homes in order to spread some joy during this difficult time and you delivered! We received so many amazing submissions that it was hard to choose just a few to feature…so we chose a bunch! You can view the submissions by clicking here. You can also click here to check out some of our favorites, which are also currently airing on KCTS 9.
For our next challenge, we want to see you, your kids, your pets or even your plants in your best “Mr. Rogers sweater”. Break out your cardigans and show us and your neighbors that we’re all in this together!
Post your sweaters by using #OurHeartsLiveHere and tagging @KCTS9. Make sure to nominate your friends on social media to participate! We’ll select some of our favorite submissions to be featured in segments that will air on KCTS 9 and shared out with our social media channels.
Finally, please share this with your family, friends and neighbors! The more people who participate the more we show we’re all in this together.
Here’s how to participate:
1) To be officially considered, fill out this form and include your name, e-mail and photo of your sweater(s)! Use the hashtag #OurHeartsLiveHere to share your work with the community.
2) Include the KCTS 9 flyer in your photo. Don’t have a printer at home? No problem. Just hand-write a sign that says “We’re participating in #OurHeartsLiveHere with KCTS 9!”
2) Follow all social distancing guidelines and stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who doesn’t live in your residence.
Our favorite submissions will be featured in spots aired on KCTS 9.
