Mr. Stern, Adam Hooper here. I’m the evening anchor at Fox 44 News in Waco, TX.
It’s been a tough year for my family in Southwest Louisiana. My godmother, Linda Dowies was hit hard by Hurricane Laura. Dozens of trees crushed the home her late husband built with his own hands. She’s older and was just left not knowing what to do. Still, she never lost her faith in God. I did a story on it. Great helpers worked to gut her home to the studs and was hopeful it could be saved and re-built.
Then, Hurricane Delta hit. Her home was deemed unrepairable. She now has to start from the ground up and I believe she has given up.
Every year my family does a scavenger hunt for Christmas. This year I am putting it all together and I’m hoping for a long shot, in that you would play a small role in our hunt this year by recording yourself reading a clue I’ve written. I know this would mean the world to my family. Home Alone is my favorite movie.
Thank you for hearing me out. Here is the clue you would read and the news story I did on my Godmother’s home.
Thank you again and God bless.
“What’s up Hoopers?! Here’s your final clue.
For years this box was misused. It held blankets, sheets and a quilt, but ever since our Millie came along, it’s being used for why it was built.
I’m not saying that in the beginning this box was the least bit worthless. However, now it keeps the grandkids happy; being used for its intended purpose.
Today, it also plays a role in this Christmas family tradition. It’s the final hiding spot in the 20-20 edition.
Merry Christmas!!! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the 2020 Hooper family Great Christmas Hunt!”
Your sculptures are amazing, by the way! Please pardon my rudeness for not starting with that! What a talent on and off camera. Also, sorry for using this platform to reach out... I just didn’t know of another way.
Mr. Stern, Is there anything I can do to convince you?
