May 29, 2014
Hosted by Ray Hansell, MarySue Hansell, and Gregory Hansell
What if all children had the essentials they needed to thrive? That’s the mission at Cradles to Crayons, a non-profit that supplies kids with those essentials free of charge by “connecting communities that have with communities that need.”
Joining us this week on BetterWorldians Radio is Michal Smith, Executive Director at Cradles to Crayons. Smith will discuss the impact her organization is having on children in the Philadelphia area and how Cradles to Crayons offers meaningful volunteer opportunities to thousands of individuals and families each year.
Tune in every week to hear new guests share how they are making the world a better place and to learn how you can become a BetterWorldian!
