In addition to supporting his church, The Boys and Girls Club, and other charities, Tim Russert participated in Food Network's Let's Make Sure Everybody Eats, the channel's national telethon to raise money for the hungry, writes Reese Schonfeld on The Huffington Post. Schonfeld was the co-founder of Food Network and CNN.
"He earns a second cheer for being such a good guy. When I was running the Food Network he participated in 'Let's Make Sure Everybody Eats', our national telethon to raise money for the hungry. (As an aside, that's something the Food Network should think of reviving, given the current price of food.) From everything I heard from my friends at NBC Washington, from his appearances on television and from the encomium heaped upon him for three days by the 24 hour cable networks, he seems to have been one of God's great gentlemen." (Emphasis mine)
Just thought I'd share another reason to honor and remember Tim Russert.
