"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Hello Mayor and Council of Aurora,

My name is Meribeth Deen and I work as a producer at Force Four Entertainment, a television production company based out of Vancouver, BC. I am emailing to connect with you about getting the word out about our show, "Million Dollar Neighbourhood"  searching for a town in Ontario to be featured in Season 2 on Oprah's OWN Network.

A little bit about the show:

"Million Dollar Neighbourhood" is not a real estate show (I thought it was before I watched the first episode). It is a show which focuses on one select community rallying together to increase their collective net worth by $1,000,000 over 10 weeks. The 100 families and individuals who choose to take part will be guided through a series of challenges with the support of financial experts, life coaches and a whole slough of incredible advisors to increase their net worth.

The transformations and growth the families experienced in Season 1 were dramatic to say the least. After doing quite a bit of research on the Southern Ontario area it feels like might be the perfect fit for our show and our show a prefect fit for the area. On the table is an opportunity for participants to get out of debt, save money, build an even stronger community than already appears to exist, while focusing a spotlight on the area.

If you'd like to get a little bit of a better sense of the show you can check us out here: http://ownca.oprah.com/Shows/Million-Dollar-Neighbourhood.aspx 

I look forward to hearing from you and the residents of Aurora via email, phone or people can "like" us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/MillionDollarNeighbourhood

I look forward to hearing from Aurora, and, for the record, we do not ask for financial contributions of any kind from the communities we work with.

Thank you,

Meribeth Deen

Aurora won't make the cut but it will be interesting to see if another town does. A good idea.
