Be The Good.

We tout that a lot on our show and that’s because it’s up to each of us to personally do what we can to make the world a better place. Even if that world is just cleaning up a creek near your home.

Loyal listener Stacy reached out to us this week to say her daughter got tired of seeing the creek near her school trashed. So, rather than wait for someone else to do something about it, Cyrmy and her best friend Olivia decided to organize a Creek Clean-Up day. 

According to mom, the girls spent the last couple months making power point presentations for the rest of their school on the importance the creek (Dry Creek, which runs through Placer and Sacramento counties and ends at the Sacramento river). They resented the power point to the other classes at school to encourage involvement and now, the big day is approaching!  

The section of creek they’re targeting is along the Cook-Riolo trail near Creekview Ranch elementary school and the clean up is Saturday, April 17th, at 3:45. 

They’ve included all the details for volunteers—which you can see on our FB page- and include the final helpful tip that “If you see someone litter, tell them in a kind way they shouldn’t do that”. Good advice!

 

Oh, did I mention Cyrmy and her best friend are 4th graders?  

LOVE IT!  

We can’t do an official Be The Good get together because of Covid restrictions still in place from our company, but we encourage you to go out and help these kids and show ‘em that their efforts are exactly what we need in the world today.
