When you think about it, the thought of not eating for an entire weekend not only makes MY stomach hurt but also my heart. That is the reality for many children in the Treasure Valley and the State of Idaho. Tomorrow, as we kick off the Mix 106 Cares for Kids Radiothon with the Idaho Food bank, you can stand with us and fight that statistic that 1 in 7 children don't know where their next meal is coming from.

We live in such an amazing community. It really is, one that gives back when others are hurting or when others are hungry. The Idaho Foodbank is very much a part of that giving back community. Our Radiothon with them that kicks off bright and early tomorrow morning will bring to the forefront the tireless work the Foodbank does for so many in the Treasure Valley and beyond. With a donation of $25 a month, you are putting food in the tummies of a kid who in insecure on the certainty that they will eat every meal during the weekend time and summer months.

On top of giving financially, some of the brilliant business partners around the valley have pitched in a way to say thank you with some incentives for your donations.

And more to come...  So won't you join Mike and Nicole, Mix 106, and the Idaho Foodbank tomorrow from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and help fight hunger across our state, and at home in the Treasure Valley. Thank you in advance and we are looking forward to talking with you about your giving experiences. Let's break the statistic and make an impact.
