Jackie and Bender's 9th Annual
for Seattle Children's Hospital
Every year, my favorite radio station has a two day radiothon to raise money for the Uncompensated Care Fund. Which means the money donated is put into a special fund so that NO CHILD will ever be turned away for treatment, regardless of their families ability to pay.
Seattle Children's Hospital features state of the art care by some of the leading Doctors in the country.
These Doctors are so committed to their cause they treat their patients as if they were their own children.
My family has never required such care, and I hope we never do.
I still give.
$5, $10, $20.
Whatever I can manage.
No matter how little.
Every penny helps!
I give for the children I know that are healthy.
I give for the children that are not.
The children that are missing out on their childhood.

~KISS 106.1 Listener
So, if you can... I ask that you tune your internet radios to KISS 106.1 and listen to their inspirational, hopeful and heartbreaking stories. And if you can, GIVE!
I realize that this blog reaches a worldwide audience, so I know you may not be inclined to give to Seattle Children's. So use this opprotunity to give to children in your area.
But also keep in mind, Seattle Children's is one of the leading children's hospitals in the country.
They have even recently opened a state of the art Autism Treatment Center.
All I'm saying, is you never know.
It could be your child.
A neice or nephew.
No one want to believe it can happen to them.
And maybe it won't.
