Sound the Alarm Outreach, United 4 Children, The Blessing Basket Project, and More, April 2012

On this edition of Impact, we feature stories that may have started with a bad situation, but those involved refuse to let it end there and turned their bad experiences into motivation for helping others overcome similar adversities. You’ll meet Theresa Wilson who, during a difficult time in her life, used a simple basket to remind her of all her blessings. Now her blessing basket is saving villages from poverty around the world. We’ll introduce you to a woman who shares her personal nightmare with others in hopes of saving them from the same pain. We also have a great example of how St. Louis’ musical community takes care of their own after a well-known local bassist faces some tough times. Parents looking for a safe option for childcare can get free advice from a local organization with the children’s best interest at heart. And we’re going to take you to a one of a kind room in St. Louis that is helping children with developmental disabilities to be more comfortable with their surroundings.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world. Tune in, it could have an impact on you!
