We did it! Thanks to everyone who made the Facebook campaign to reach 5,000 "Likes" of The Weather Channel's new series, Coast Guard Alaska. As of this morning the page had well over 5,200 thumbs up. The Weather Channel will donate $5,000 to the Coast Guard Foundation as a result of the campaign.
Coast Guard Alaska, airs Wednesdays, at 9 p.m. Eastern. The show follows Coast Guard personnel and their families stationed in the remote town of Kodiak, Alaska. The show portrays the incredible work these brave individuals do, and the impact on their families.
Just because we've reached the goal of 5,000 "likes" doesn't mean we shouldn't push it higher! Go to http://www.facebook.com/CGAlaska to like the show. And be sure to watch Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
