This week’s featured Mix Cares interviews
Superheroes Bringing Smiles to Sick Kids
Who hasn’t imagined being a Superhero and solving the world’s problems? For Dave Watkins and Steve Lam, it’s a reality! Dave got a scare when after an accident x-rays revealed cancer, but knowing about it saved his life! So he and his pal Steve decided to “give back” by visiting sick kids at Kaiser Hospital, but they did it in a super way. Dave became Batman and Steve became Superman and their visits to local hospitals are causing spirits to soar! They say they haven’t seen so many smiles in a while, so listen to their story and give yourself a smile.
Sending Out the Old Year With Laughs
Political Humorist Will Durst’s “Big Fat Year-End Kiss-Off” features a half-dozen comedians looking back on a crazy year, and making the best of it for laughs! They are spreading laughter all over the Bay Area this month, and after 40 years of finding humor in our favorite politicians, Will says 2017 is the greatest Christmas gift of all. Find out what’s it like to make fun of politics for a living! Listen to Will and you may be tempted to vote for HIM.

Second Harvest Food Bank CEO, Leslie Bacho works year-round with volunteers and others to ease the pressure on getting by in Silicon Valley.
