Promotion Spotlight – 20 Christmases with SOS Radio

SOS Radio hosted a special Christmas party for children with incarcerated parents in Las Vegas. It was a partnership with an organization called which helps men & women coming out of prison re-enter society. The stats show children with incarcerated parents have a higher probability of going to prison themselves unless there’s intervention in that family cycle.

The Hope for Prisoners Christmas party gave 20 different families a personal living room Christmas experience complete with gifts, stockings and a catered meal by Las Vegas chefs! The team decorated Nevada Department of Corrections Casa Grande Prison Center with 20 individual living room settings. Each family had a personal living room experience set up with couches next to a coffee table with Christmas treats, and a fresh cut decorated Christmas tree. (Walker Furniture made the living room settings possible) Many of the inmates had the opportunity to surprise their children in person at the party and share hugs and gifts!

Tons of gifts, bikes & stockings were passed out to the children, plus foster parents & guardians were blessed with stacks of giftcards! SOS Radio personalities played Christmas music and shared the Christmas story with the children. Las Vegas Metro Police officers passed out teddy bears to the children too!

There was some neat reconciliation stories like one dad who had never held his daughter until this party. The toddler was born after he started his prison sentence. Watch the kids hugging mom & dad, sharing special moments in this video!

SOS Radio listeners donated toys, bikes, giftcards and stockings filled with gifts for children with incarcerated parents.

Nevada Department of Corrections Director, Jim Dzurenda shared with SOS Radio’s morning show host Scott Herrold about how the State of Nevada has shifted its entire vision for rehabilitation over the last two years here. This is fascinating.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
