About Cool Kids Campaign:

Cool Kids Campaign is devoted to improving the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families by focusing on the academic, social and emotional needs brought on by a cancer diagnosis. In 2006 as we were deciding on a name for our foundation, we kept in mind that kids are cool – sick or healthy! We have made it our goal to directly impact children who are fighting cancer. Even when they don’t feel well, kids are still kids. Because we strive to design programs that directly impact the kids, we take great pride in our Cool Kids Learning Center, established in the fall of 2011. We believe this is just the beginning of a vital need to serve more kids with cancer. With the continued support of sponsors and donors – people like you – we envision extending our reach. There is unlimited potential! More Information is Available at: http://www.coolkidscampaign.org/

About Justin Berk:

I have a little obsession with snow (Faith-in-the-Flakes), but my love of weather extends to all seasons. My goal for this web site is a portal to all of my current work. I am very active in community through Wind for Change/Cool Kids Campaign, and the meteorological field outside of TV. I am very active with a lot of support in large networks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc. While blogging and updating the weather, I enjoy sharing great pictures interesting stories, and relevant news. Some of them will be scattered around this site.

Kid Weather App: One of proudest developments! I made this mobile app with my oldest son. It was his idea when he was years 6 old, and the first project I worked on when I left my last TV station. It has been downloaded in over 55 counties and won a Parents Choice Award among others.    http://justinweather.com/about/
