Laugh with Michael Jr.

His motto is: "Laughter is the tangible evidence of hope."  Michael Jr. is comedian that is not only funny (really funny), but is using his comedy to make a difference.  He recently took his comedy to places that are often void of laughter - places like prisons, hospitals and homeless shelters - and not only brought laughter, but hope.  Michael Jr.'s unique tour was made into a documentary called "Comedy: The Road Less Traveled".  Find out more about Michael here

Hear Joshua - A Little Boy and $1 Making a Big Difference

Never underestimate what God can do with something "little".  There's the cool story of a 7-year-old boy from Wisconsin who anonymously gave a dollar to a stranger that God turned into $3,000 to help other kids.  When Jim Pfifer walked to his car parked at the YMCA in Waukesha he found a note written by a child with $1 attached to it.  The note read, "This is a dollar I made doing my chores and I wanted to do something special with it, so I'm giving it to you.  God loves you.  My name is Joshua, I'm 7 years old".

Upon reading the note, he took it in to the YMCA and donated the $1, along with $10 of his own, to the YMCA's Strong Kids campaign.  Then at a fundraiser, he told the story, and checks of donations started pouring in.  The $1 he found soon turned into $3,000, and it was all because of Joshua's idea to pay it forward.  There's more to this very inspirational story - see the video below. OR hear the story as told by Joshua when he called Lisa & Eric (click here)
