Dolly Parton's timeless tune "Coat of Many Colors" kicks off the show as Adrian and Ethan discuss the importance of literacy and learning in today's youth, highlighting the country music legend's Imagination Library and actor Nathan Fillion's Kids Need to Read organization. Mandy Maresky, mother of our Hero of the Week Aaron Maresky, calls in to tell us how her son turned his painful chronic disease into a charity called Aaron's Apple that has raised $220,000 for the families of children suffering conditions that rack up staggering medical bills. All of that plus the usual banner, our first call-in listener, and news on all the ways you can help spread the message of Protecting, Educating, and Aiding Children Everywhere!
