Dumps Like A Truck Joins The Mark White Show

Auburn, Ala. – When you have Jeff Foxworthy on the show, what’s more fitting than having a business named Dumps Like A Truck?? This week, that’s exactly what I’ll have when I’m joined by owner Whitley Dykes of Auburn, Alabama. A popular restaurant for Auburn students and locals alike, Dumps Like A Truck is much bigger than the authentic Chinese dumplings they serve! You see, when business owners Whitley & Kunya Li started Dumps Like A Truck, they wanted to use their business to educate, empower, and put shoes on the feet of children living and scavenging for survival in third-world trash dumps and that’s just what they’re doing. In addition to the business, they now have a new baby girl born just last week, so congratulations to them!

I hope you’ll tune in as I talk to Whitley about he and his wife’s successful business. Please share with your friends & neighbors! If you are reading this and you are a Dumps Like A Truck fan, please share!

Jeff Foxworthy Joins The Mark White Show

Athens, Ala. – This week on The Mark White Show, joining me will be Atlanta, Georgia, native Jeff Foxworthy! A stranger to no one, Jeff is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best selling author of 26 books. While Jeff is widely known for “You Might Be A Redneck” jokes, “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?”, and “The American Bible Challenge”, what many don’t know about Jeff is that he spends time with the homeless, teaching Bible study classes and bringing Chick-fil-A biscuits every Tuesday morning to homeless people in Atlanta. Of his work with the homeless, Jeff says, “I think if God loves anything, it’s seeing his broken people restored.” Jeff & I will be talking more about that effort as well as his upcoming show at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, on February 10th. I hope you’ll make plans to tune in and share this upcoming show with your friends and neighbors!

Singer Brandon Elder Encourages Fans to Support Special Effort for Six Year Old Girl Who Lost Mom In Tragic Car Accident

Athens, Ala – On Monday, December 10th, April Landinger was in a vehicle accident that took her life. April left behind a six year old daughter named Mia. Responsibility for Mia now falls on her grandmother, Debbie Dollar. Because of the circumstances, a fundraiser was set up to assist Mia and her grandmother. After Brandon Elder of Arab, Alabama, who is well known from the American Idol program, heard of Mia’s situation, on his fan page he posted, “Hey guys! So I hardly ever do this but this story of this little girl touched my heart! It’s so close to Christmas time if any of you guys can help out with this cause please do! Please SHARE!!! Thank you so much in advance!” Mia’s story has touched the hearts of many. If you would like to support the effort, go to Christmas for Mia and donate. 

Listen to Brandon’s message to Mia and fans below.

Late Uncle’s Influence Played Role In Nephew’s Heroic Action

Hoover, Ala. – The story is everywhere. Alabama National Guardsman Rashad Wilson Billingsley came to 12 year old Molly Davis’s aid when she was shot in the back at Riverchase Galleria in Hoover on November 22nd. Rashad has been hailed a hero and rightly so. What led to that moment took positive influences in Rashad’s life to make it happen. Let’s look at one very important figure in Rashad’s life.

Rashad’s uncle, SSG Willie Dunn, served in the Alabama National Guard for 22 years. During that time, SSG Dunn served in the Persian Gulf War in Iraq. His entire life, Rashad witnessed firsthand his uncle’s service to his state and country and it instilled a desire to serve himself.

After high school, like his uncle, Rashad joined the Alabama National Guard. During basic training, his Uncle Willie was fighting lung cancer. Before he could see his nephew graduate from basic training, Willie passed away. Although, his Uncle Willie had passed on, his memory and legacy continued on through Rashad.

On November 22nd, part of SSG Willie Dunn was on the floor with 12 year old Molly Davis working to save her life. The powerful positive influence of SSG Willie Dunn in the life of his nephew, was clear on that night. Willie Dunn was also a preacher and referring to that night at the Galleria and his life to this day, Rashad said, “Without God, I wouldn’t be here today. I want to give him all the credit.” It appears that his uncle’s impact was extended far beyond Rashad’s desire to join the military.

We all have an Uncle Willie, someone who has influenced us in a way that leads us to make a difference in the lives of others. We simply have to follow that path and allow their legacy to help move us forward.

While we continue to thank Rashad for his actions that night, we thank SSG Willie Dunn as well. Uncle Willie’s legacy lives on.
