On May 2, Ralena Gordon, author and photographer of The Empty Places project was interviewed on the Denver CBS Affiliate television station. While the interview was just about 3 minutes long, it gave a good impression of the project and fundraiser and helped to promote the event. Following the interview, an email was received by one of the viewers who said that she was very touched by this broadcast and proceeded to describe her experiences as a teenager in an institution. She indicated that the images captured by Ralena accurately described her experiences. The interview can be seen here.
