One thing we can all agree on: HOPE is in short order these days. And if there is one thing about which Life 96.5 and Danny Gokey are passionate, it is helping people find HOPE in this hurting world.

That’s the heart behind The Hope Encounter Tour (in Sioux Falls September 21!) and Danny’s non-profit organization, “Better Than I Found It.”

There are people all around us making a difference in our communities. Life 96.5 wants to help YOU share their stories! You can nominate and then vote on stories of people who are shining light and spreading love in our communities to leave the world around them better than they found it.

It’s easy!

  • Record a video or write out the details telling the personal story about how you or someone you know has left the world better than they found it, helping to make a difference in our communities.
  • Submit the video/message  HERE
  • Weekly winners will be drawn from the submissions! Weekly winners will be announced Mondays August 13, 20, and 27, and will each receive a pair of tickets to the concert!
  • Story submissions will also be voted on by Life 96.5 listeners like you. The top story with the most votes will be the Grand Prize winner! (More on the voting process coming soon)
  • The Grand Prize is ROW OF TICKETS (10 in all!) plus a pre-show BACKSTAGE EXPERIENCE with all three tour artists!
  • The winner will be acknowledged with a public moment of recognition during the September 21st show at Washington Pavilion.

So, do you have in mind someone you could nominate?

Our first weekly winner is Cindi Pochop, who nominated Kayla! Kayla is an extremely busy medical student who always finds time to mentor, show kindness, and help others. Thank you for making a difference!
