Back to our regular scheduled programming everyone. I’m still swamped but made sure I got all my ducks in a row so I could get the show out today. On the program we’ll give our prize pack giveaway to one of you, cover the news for two weeks and also talk about the calendar of events for November. Something new we’ll be doing includes providing a monthly update of the progress the EESF is making in reaching its goal of educating 700,000 children. There’s a story on this weeks show involving a girl and an escalator accident that just goes to show you why it’s so important to help them reach this goal.
Thanks to the following companies who have donated goodies to our end of the month prize pack!
