Desmond Henry, founder of

, loved the concept of Giving Tuesday and wanted a unique way for his company to get involved.

He decided to post a video and ask people which groups they felt should receive a $2500 donation. The response was overwhelming and Henry was left with a big task to choose the four recipients - Military Veteran Project, Community Action, Topeka Civic Theatre and Topeka Youth Project.

He told Melissa about the project, the winners - and whether he'll do it again next year - in a visit to the Red Couch.
