The 2013 Polar Bear Plunge is Coming! [Video]

I have said it multiple times before . . . jumping into a freezing-cold lake is the single WORST idea in history and the single-worst way to raise money for a charity.  LOL!  But, you know what!  We're doing it anyway and we are going to have a blast.  :)

Toys Donated In Memory Of Lane Goodwin [PHOTOS]

I think it's safe to say that people all over the country were extremely touched by the life of Lane Goodwin. We all watched he and his family fight the monster of childhood cancer. We celebrated during the good days and our hearts were broken when he passed away in October.

In lieu of flowers or a balloon release, the family requested sentiments be in the form of gift cards to certain stores. They planned to purchase toys for the children being treated at the Vanderbilt Children's Oncology Clinic. A few weeks ago... that's just what they did!

EVES 5th Graders Give To Christmas Wish [VIDEO]

Mrs. Davis' 5th grade class at East View Elementary decided to do things a little differently this year. Instead of giving presents to each other, they wanted to donate them to the children at Christmas Wish. What a great group of 10 and 11 year olds! Office Manager Roxianne's daughter Cydney is in the class, so we decided to take the WBKR truck, the BKR bear and us to the school and have them present their presents!

These kids are amazing and they brought in over 35 toys! They even wrapped the gifts themselves, check it out!
