You’re invited to come see us in person at Jonesboro Radio Group headquarters: 314 Union, downtown Jonesboro. We take checks, cash, credit cards and hugs. We love hugs, we were raised by huggers.

No matter which way you decide to give, we just hope that you will give.
We are trying to make it as easy as possible for you to help make wishes come true.
We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
