‘You’ve made this day a special day, by just your being you. There’s no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are.’ –Fred Rogers
As seen in the video below, Fred Rogers was a passionate supporter of public television. Not only did he fight (and win!) for its budget, even years after his death he is still one of the most prominent and influential figures in public media history. It took only six minutes to convince the subcommittee chairman, Senator John Pastore, of his strong belief in the power of public television and the impact it can have, especially in regards to children’s social and emotional intelligence. During the month of November, IdahoPTV is remembering Mister Rogers and we hope that you’ll join us in honoring the passions of one humble man dressed in sneakers and a sweater by making a gift today.
Whether you’re donating in honor of a loved one, donating in remembrance of Fred Rogers, or donating just to be a good neighbor, we invite you to leave a comment with your pledge to share in the joy he has brought to the world, and celebrate all things Mister Rogers.
