My story tonight is about this group, Kids in Need, and the great work they're doing all year long.
In 2014 alone, Kids In Need Foundation collected and distributed over $100 million in donated school supplies. These donations benefited more than 4 million students in over 8,000 schools across 49 states. NBC’s Kate Snow reports tonight. #MakingADifference

My mother-in-law sent this quote from Maya Angelou. As the calendar turns to Dec 19 and we mark 4 years... It captures our feelings.
"And when great souls die,
after a period peace blooms,
slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill
with a kind of soothing, electric vibration.
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.”
-- Maya Angelou

Interesting piece this morning by Kerry Sanders... an inside look at the military lab where they're working on an Ebola vaccine. By the way-- today is what the Mayor of Dallas called the "Magic Day"... by tonight, everyone who came into contact with the first Ebola patient in Dallas, Thomas Eric Duncan, will have passed through the 21-day incubation period. None of the 177 people who were being monitored in Dallas has gotten sick.

For the first time in 5 weeks, I am covering a story other than Ebola. Unfortunately it is still quite sad. You've probably heard about Brittany Maynard, who had terminal brain cancer and decided to end her life this weekend- with a legal prescription from her doctor in Oregon. Tonight on Nightly News we examine the impact she's having on the national debate over end-of-life issues.
