A Fabulous Secret Millionaire

Debbie Johnston

Flipping through TV channels, I caught a pretty blonde in a White Mink-trimmed Red velour robe. Certain it was from Fabulous-Furs, I checked our files and discovered indeed there was a Richmond, VA customer whose name matched the woman on Secret Millionaire. In this reality show, Debbie Johnston travels to Richmond, CA to spend a week volunteering at three non-profits. At the end of the week, it’s Debbie’s decision how substantial donations will be disbursed among the non-profits.

I took the liberty of sending an e-mail asking if, indeed it WAS her on ABC’s Secret Millionaire and Debbie graciously responded yes. Earning my undying devotion, Debbie added she loves our clothes and agreed to a phone conversation to share her story. As delightful off-screen as on, Debbie said the Secret Millionaire segment was actually taped two years prior and has already aired in New Zealand, Australia and UK.

A successful entrepreneur as well as author, in her book The School of Heart Knocks, Debbie describes how as an RN, she built a multi-million dollar health care company beginning with a single sheet of paper in 1988. She’s remained in touch with the three Richmond, CA non-profits for which she volunteered. Even more impressive is her philanthropic work in her hometown. To learn more about Debbie visit her website. Debbie’s Aug 18, 2013 segment can be viewed on ABC's website . Just minutes into the show, watch for Debbie wearing our faux fur-trimmed robe as she apprehensively packs. BTW, Debbie said she loved her robe so much, she ordered ten for gifts!
