Viewers of 'Last Word' Donate $10 Million
Viewers of "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" showed their support for O'Donnell's K.I.N.D (Kids In Need of Desks) Fund, which was sparked by a trip to Africa, with a record setting $10 million in donations.
The children who receive desks through KIND were in classrooms where they sat on cement floors or outside under tress. Last night O'Donnell and his viewers marked the $10 million dollar milestone, (which surprised O'Donnell and was raised almost entirely from viewers of his MSNBC show) with surprise guest, Victor Chinyama of UNICEF, who O'Donnell did not know would appear. It was a moving segment. Congratulations to O'Donnell and his viewers!
