The Big Thank You
Since 2007, and for over 10 years, The Bert Show community has banded together in order to send a handwritten thank you letter to every soldier stationed away from home at Thanksgiving. In the first year, listeners were able to send over 375,000 thank you letters, ensuring that each soldier away from home received a letter.
Bert's Big Adventure
In 2003, Bert Weiss created Bert's Big Adventure, a non-profit charity that takes chronic and terminally ill children and their families to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. While on the trip, kids and their families are treated to a VIP experience, including a chartered flight, private hotel accommodations, park passes, transportation to and from the parks, meal coupons, and spending cash.
The Bert Shows works with companies including Moe's Southwest Grill, Jersey Mike's Subs, and Haagen-Daaz in order to raise money for the trip, as well as with donations from listeners.
When Kristin Klingshirn was getting married to long-time boyfriend, Bart Mattingly in 2017, the couple donated their wedding registry to Bert's Big Adventure in order to purchase supplies and toys for the kids on the trip. Listeners donated over 2,000 items from their registry.
The inaugural trip in 2003 featured 7 families in need. The trip in February 2020 was the 18th annual trip and included 13 families. During the 2020 trip, Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X surprised the kids with a private show and meet-and-greet session.
