You may have heard that I recently attended the taping of the 10th day of 12 Days of Giveaways of The Ellen Show – the show aired on Friday What you might not know is that I had the UNBELIEVABLE opportunity to participate in the Ellen Show dance off….which I took advantage of to the Nth degree. (Click here to see what happened.)
So this has gone a bit viral. @TheEllenShow posted my “gift of dance” on Twitter and we are now over 270K views!
As it is The Giving Season, I am creating a campaign using the @TheEllenShow tag line of “I give you this gift of dance.” I want to direct the traffic to the nonprofit organizations that I work with and encourage visitors to make donations.
