This week on our Public Affairs Program, Sunday at 5a:
This week we hear from an emergency shelter for kids who find themselves suddenly forced into the foster care system; Safe Place.
Safe Place is part of Hand In Hand Kids, a non profit in Snohomish County founded by our guest, the Executive Director, Todd McNeal. Also joining us is the popular midday host of Movin’ 92.5, Justin Barnes.
Justin is also a member of a scooter club, the Soldiers of Destiny and they raise funds for Safe Kids through an annual event called Big Hearts & Backpacks.
One of the key messages Todd likes people to know about taking care of foster kids is that they are all of our kids and we can all help instead of waiting for a vague “them” to do something about it.
Big Hearts & Backpacks takes place on Thursday, August 24th at Pono Ranch in Ballard.
Buy tickets to the event and learn more about Hand In Hand and The Soldiers of Destiny online and Facebook.
In our second half its Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels;
The “Ancestral Health Symposium 2017” happens at the University of Washington this year–Sept 7-9. Around 70 speakers from around the globe discussing healthful living and effective healing. To provide insights: Nora Gedgaudes (Portland, OR) has worked in the field of nutrition for a couple of decades and is an author, recent book “Primal Fat Burner”. Darryl Edwards (London, England) has lived the health style for the past 15 years. Prior to that the doctor was prescribing a lifetime of meds for pre-diabestes, cardiovascular disease, back pain, high BP. Darryl decided on a life style change, ultimately leaving his work in the finance area, sitting at a desk for hours on end, and created his new work in ‘activity’ and The Primal Play Method.
