He also does VoiceOver in his spare time. Please enjoy our show! AND thank you so much for helping us raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause. NEVER KEEP THIS A SECRET!!

What is the Penny Pledge?
The Penny Pledge, an individual call to action for all ages. With Kid in the Corner’s in-school, and now virtual, programming we have been able to reach thousands of youth and truly create an impactful change. We are normalizing mental health, starting difficult conversations, and strengthening the community with knowledge, tools, and resources.
By wearing pennies around our necks, on our key chains, or on our backpacks, we have a physical reminder to reach out, to be kind, and to show people that they are not alone in this struggle. Pennies serve as visual symbols to prompt active listening, start conversations, and recognize our own mental health needs. Pennies are often discounted as insignificant and our pledge is to remember that every cent counts.
