Meet 94.3 WSC listener Kyle, who exactly one week ago, called into a Tell Me Something Good Tuesday edition of The Kelly Golden Show, sharing pre-school teacher Alexis' story, and an upcoming benefit in her honor. He explained during his live on-air chat with me that he and wife Brittney's 3-year-old daughter Paisley just adore her teacher Alexis, who works at Harbour Lake Baptist Pre-School & Academy in Goose Creek. He'd just found out she was unfortunately living in a tent, and did not have a car, but had a full time job.
The listener response was immediate! The very next studio phone line to light up, as Kyle spoke, was Tony of Azeala Motors on Rivers Avenue in North Charleston, who - without hesitation - said they would donate this teacher a car. Here's Tony below!
And, the next line that lit up was a woman who had a spare room for Alexis to sleep in that night, until she didn't need it!
Then came the actual benefit Kyle was initially calling into 94.3 WSC to invite the lowcountry to, which was inside Mellow Mushroom in Summerville, who donated 20% of their proceeds, during the event, which added up to $2000. During the event, Tony from Azeala Motors, myself and G-Man the Producer, surprised pre-school teacher Alexis with her new wheels, which you can see in above video and below pic!
After spending the next two weeks in a comfy hotel, Alexis is planning on moving into a custom camper on a fellow church friends property. The camper cost $7500 so if you feel compelled to still act, you can click and donate here, at HLBConline.org . More great news, Alexis' car insurance has been pre-paid for the next two years and she's been given a $300 gas card. She told me she is overwhelmed and appreciates everything, including the hand knitted prayer blanket someone handed her as we spoke together at the benefit.
I personally can't thank our giving, kind listeners enough for continuing to stand-up when the calls come in. We are very thankful here at 94.3 WSC and iHeartRadio Charleston for our listeners, because without you, there would be no us!
So, lets keep the giving going, all year long! Blessings to you all this holiday season and Thank You, thank you, THANK YOU!
Kelly G., 94.3 WSC
