Last week F&CP was the backdrop for a KET shoot on Kosair Charities’ FaceIt abuse (Dan Fox photo). Several working partners were featured speakers as well as footage of the Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center facility. We are excited to see the results of the segment on KET’s ” kNOwMORE non-profits” which should air early 2014.
