Acting With Chai: Learning to love my kidneys with Plugged-In TV

Once in awhile an opportunity arises where I get to combine journalism, being on camera, and supporting a great cause. That’s why I am happy to announce that I have been selected as a co-host of Plugged-In, the exciting news talk show by The Kidney Foundation of Canada – BC and Yukon Branch!

This past Sunday was the first day in the Plugged-In studios, where I got to work with amazing co-hosts Lori Watt, Amro Majzoub and Manpreet Johal. We shared kidney disease information, learned about kidney health, and talked about the importance of organ donation.

Kidney Kids with Logyn and Bronwyn. These kids are absolute rock stars!

I also sat down with kidney disease patient Logyn and his big sister Bronwyn to pack a kidney-friendly lunch and snacks for school. We also bonded over Pokemon cards!

Did you know that one in 10 Canadians are battling kidney disease? Or that there is no cure for kidney disease? I do now, which is why I’m honoured to work with The Kidney Foundation of Canada to get the word out. The organization provides hope and support to all people affected by kidney disease: young children, families, organ donors and recipients, and more.

Working on Plugged-In has been an eye-opening experience, and I can’t wait to share the first episode with you when it goes live in September! In the meantime, follow The Kidney Foundation of Canada – BC and Yukon Branch on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more important information.

Until next time, stay Plugged-In!
