“What started as a ripple of change,” explained Travis Wing, “is starting to turn into a major wave. We are attracting the attention of kids and schools across the city.  This week we are looking at talking with about 3,900 students!  Many of these kids have already contacted us and are dying to start making a difference; the kids know that we need to see change; and the kids are dying to be agents of that change… it is so amazing and so encouraging to see the power of children and to see them open up their hearts to our cause.”
