I am so excited about the month of December shows. This is the time of year for giving. We give to our family; to our friends and to others without expecting much in return. Tonight we are going to talk about the spirit of giving with a woman who puts this to practice all year-round.

We begin with a story about an extraordinary woman and a remarkable homeless man. Elizabeth kept seeing Dale in the same place at certain times and had recognized him from prior years. She had avoided him thinking he was scary. One day when she was out to dinner with her son, she spotted Dale in a dark storefront sitting on a walker. At first she walked quickly to her car. But, when she looked back at him, she could see his silhouette, so frail and vulnerable, she thought… something was different this night.

Tonight Elizabeth is here with us to talk about how she befriended Dale who turns out was suffering from Huntington's disease. She got him off the street and in selfless style she cared for him until his passing. How many homeless H'Dears are out there, friendless, scared, sick and hungry, helpless and alone?

Tonight we honor Elizabeth for her spirit and determination to help our most vulnerable brothers and sisters, the homeless and tonight we honor Dale for the man he was and for the suffering he endured on streets of Seattle.

Tuned in for and incredible story of love and respect and yes many, many challenges.
