Morning Mix Guests & Friends

Cindra Mielke & Jeni Hammond’s Make-A-Wish Swim has been postponed due to high winds and waves and the possibility of severe thunderstorms. The ladies promise to still conduct the swim at a later date and are still taking donations for Make-A-Wish

The 26th Annual KELLEYS ISLAND MAKE-A-WISH SWIM

Cindra Mielke & Jeni Hammond will be swimming to Kelleys Island for the 26th time to raise money to grant wishes for Make-A-Wish kids. This year, they will swim from West Bay to Portside, Sunday August 2. Due to the COVID pandemic, the golf cart poker run has been cancelled, and the Make-A-Wish kids will be cheering on Cindra & Jen from their homes. Money raised will go to the kids to make their wishes come true, including Braxton from Perrysburg, an 8-year old with Menkes Disease. His wish is to have a sensory experience at the Atlanta Aquarium, so he can see the different colors of the fish and watch them swim.

BEAUTY QUEEN BRITAIN BENNETT

She is promoting her anti-bullying campaign, called BRAVE.  Part of that is having parents get more involved with their kids’ social media use, since bullying is so prevalent on those sites. She is promoting her SMART Parents plan, with SMART being an acronym for Social Media Awareness Respect Timing.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Britain is unable to visit scvhools and parents, so she is posting information on her YouTube Channel, on Facebook and on Instagram: @TBHnonprofit.

She also uses the TBH acronym when it comes to social media and online bullying, standing for Talk to somebody; Block it out of your heart; Help others.
Her campaign even caught the eye of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who mentioned Britain by name in a Teen Vogue essay, called Why Our Generation Is What’s Right With America.  CLICK HERE TO READ IT.

In her travels to promote an end to bullying, Britain hung out with Shawn Mendes!

Britain is available to speak at schools, church, youth groups, or any organization. To arrange an appearance, call 419/202-0590, or contact her at [email protected].

LITTLE KIDS ROCK
The Huron St. Peter Little Kids Rock program was founded 3 years ago by Bo & Julie Loeffler in collaboration with John Cipiti, co-chair of the Music Department at Terra State Community College. Huron St. Peter was the first Catholic school in the nation to establish & support a Little Kids Rock program, teaching kids in grades 1-8 how to make, perform and sing rock n roll music.

In Scott Gast’s memory & legacy, the Scott Gast Memorial Fund donated guitars and other instruments to the program. If you’d like to donate to keep this amazing program alive, send donations to Bo Loeffler at Huron St. Peter School, or to Little Kids Rock, Attn: Julie Loeffler, 409 Anchorage Circle, Huron, OH 44839.

Listen to their interview with Mix 102.7’s Randy Hugg, and their new Cedar Point themed song!
