Keith has long had a dream to meet Ellen DeGeneres - to dance with her and talk to her about helping and being kind. We are hoping to make this happen this year! If you can help us by writing a letter to Ellen or posting something to her social media on Friday, February 14th, asking her to show Keith some love, that'd be great! Keith has helped so many - now we can help him!
Watch Keith on the CFN live telethon, Feb 8, at 8pm! Huge thanks to the CFN as well as Nettie's Country Bakery for their efforts in trying to help make this dream come true!
