What's Trending 09/20/2013

Posted: Updated:

     Trending this week is a powerful video of a man whose home was flooded in Colorado. Mark Changaris lost pretty much everything but one thing was saved, his piano. In this viral video, he comes back to his home to pack up whatever he can and finds himself on the piano bench. His roommate caught it all on camera as Mark plays "Mad World" by Tears for Fears. When you watch it, it's almost as if the sound of the piano brings him peace through all the destruction. It has over 100,000 views on YouTube. If you'd like to help towards the relief effort in Colorado, you can text the Red Cross at 90999.

     Trending locally, The God's Child project is hosting a glow-in-the-dark golf tournament. Whether you're an avid golfer or not, it's a sure way to test your skills and night vision. The God's Child Project is a program designed to giving poverty-stricken children around the world the gift of education. As you can imagine, that can get to be expensive. So, the team here in Bismarck is holding this fundraiser. The tournament will be Friday, September 27th at Mandan Municipal Golf Course. Teams will be giving glowing golf balls and tees and the greens will be lit up with lights. All proceeds will benefit children in Guatemala, El Salvador, Malawi and India. Organizers say, it's a fun night out that is sure to make you feel good.

"You know, the money is going to a good cause." says Special Activities Coordinator, Kristin Clouston. "Sometimes you think of kids in Central America as 'Oh, they're way over there. Not my problem.' But they're no different than your children. They just happen to live somewhere else and maybe not have had the best breaks in life."

You could also help support the God's Child Project by stopping by their store on Memorial Drive. They have various homemade goods shipped here straight from Guatemala. They also just started selling coffee beans! For more information on that and the tournament, just visit their website.
