Behind the Scenes: Meet the Writer


When Kevin Fleming joined Children International as a writer almost a year ago, he didn’t know he’d be working as a White House correspondent.

And he doesn’t. But he does get to cover the president from time to time. President Jim Cook, that is!

Kevin has worked with Jim to bring you a special slideshow. Jim – who’s amazed that he’s already been with Children International for 20 years! – looks back over 2007 and reflects on some of the major events that touched our lives and the lives of the children and families we work to help.

So what’s it like to work with the president?

“Jim is supremely easy to work with. To communicate 365 days of events and accomplishments in 3 or 4 minutes is not an exercise for the timid -- and Jim handled it brilliantly,” says Kevin.

And speaking of major events, Kevin is due to become a dad at the end of January! So feel free to drop him a comment in honor of this special occasion. And enjoy the slideshow, which posts on our website, www.children.org, on Thursday afternoon (December 20).
