Feel Good: Texas mom shaping kids’ futures get life-changing surprise on ‘The View’

A Texas mom who was featured on WFAA, the news station across from us at Victory Park– for dedicating her adult life to giving for the next generation received a life-changing surprise three months later on national television.

Letitia Conliffe used her money she had saved her whole life to give kids in Sulphur Springs who were headed down the wrong path a second chance at their life. WFAA’s Sean Giggy featured Conliffe and her Lil 4’s Kids Club – started because of her own troubled past and named for her four daughters – in a story in April.

The people behind ABC’s morning talk show The View head about the Texas story and wanted to help Conliffe continue making a positive impact. Just over three months after WFAA’s story aired, Conliffe was featured in studio on Tuesday’s episode of The View.

“There are so many kids out there who seek for this love that they don’t get at home,” she told the show’s hosts. “They might be around their family, but do we really know our kids?”

Giggy appeared live on the national broadcast to help deliver the news of a complete kitchen makeover for Conliffe, who was feeding dozens of kids with minimal resources.

She received a restocked pantry and $10,000 in groceries, new kitchen appliances, a fully-renovated kitchen and a new air conditioning unit for her building.

Conliffe and her kids were also given skincare and haircare products as well as backpacks, and $60,000 in additional donations from business owners in the studio audience.
