Longtime listeners will remember Will as one of our very first Heroes of the Week; we previously spoke to him on February 13, 2013.
Since 2010, Will and his F.R.O.G.s -- that stands for "Friends Reaching Our Goals," have served more than half a million meals and distributed over 80,000 backpacks filled with food to hungry children and their families in the Fort Worth area.
FROGs is a kid run organization whose purpose is to inspire and mobilize youth to make positive change. Their goal is to get youth involved with community service and volunteerism showing them that giving back is fun! Their motto is: Having Fun while Helping Others. That’s exactly what they do.
Will has been recognized by the Nickelodeon HALO Awards, the We Are Family Foundation's Three Dot Dash Summit for Global Teen Leaders, the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, and many more amazing acknowledgements and honors that it would take another hour to name - but you can find them all on his website.
Will joins our conversation today with some updates and insights on inspiring kids to get involved.
