The Southwest Local School District took a desire to earn a "Snow-Dey" for the day after the Bengals compete in the Super Bowl, by meeting a $9,400 goal to raise money to benefit the Sam Hubbard Foundation. The district scored big, raising over $26,000, and is now challenging other school districts to show their Bengal Pride in a friendly competition to raise money for a good cause. The district is challenging other school districts to try to beat them and show their love before Valentines' Day for the Bengals by helping others, also.

The Sam Hubbard Foundation, founded by the Bengals' defensive end, provides a range of services to youth. Of particular interest is food insecurity. Hubbard founded the organization to give back to the community, "I'm using (my) platform to give back to the very same communities that lifted me to where I am today."

The fundraising for nonprofits has inspired other school districts to follow suit. The Milford School District is showing its Bengal Pride by donating funds to Feed our Flock, a local nonprofit that feeds over 400 students weekly. Social media is buzzing to encourage other school districts to join in a Super Bowl of Giving by donating to the Sam Hubbard Foundation or their own selected nonprofit that serves disadvantaged students.

Most of the area school districts have declared a calamity day for Monday already: Cincinnati Public, Kings, Sycamore, Finneytown, Lockland, Franklin City, Indian Hill, Loveland, Ross, and the Northwest Local School District have all declared Monday an official "Snow Dey". Now it's time to see which school district can beat the Southwest Local School District's $26,000 lead in the big game of giving where everyone wins.

Charity is nothing new to the Bengals players. Joe Burrow, the quarterback for the team, has promoted giving to the less fortunate throughout his career.

Bengal fans are encouraged to make their pride show by donating to area nonprofits in the name of their school districts. Let's see which school district supports the Bengals. Donations can be made here. Put your school district name in the message section.

Writing the stories not being told in other arenas. Focusing on Action Journalism, meaning news that creates am end response in how you perceive an issue, prompts you to act on the issue, and how to act effectively. "Am I my brother's keeper? The answer is "yes" stupid." I have no idea who was driving the car in front of me with that sticker on their bumper, but those 10 words changed the way I view the world and the part I am bound to play in it. Those 10 words made me ask, "what can I do?" I've been an advocate for over 2 decades and my psyche is centered on how I serve others. Now, I am publishing "Actionable Journalism," hoping to inspire others to step into the wind. The objective is to provoke reader action. Whether that action is changing a mind set or, if I provide enough informational confidence, that readers engage their communities. I seek to provoke the reader to act on the information provided. To trigger them to go beyond passive readership and evolving into an impacted reader. I hope to find 10 words that will inspire others to engage with action-ism.
