The Brighter DeKalb Foundation was selected as CBS46 Atlanta’s Charity of the Month for the month of April 2017.  The Charity of the Month is part of CBS46 Chief Meteorologist Jim Kosek’s 3 Degree Guarantee launched in March 2015.

Monday through Friday on CBS46 News at 11, Jim delivers a guaranteed forecast that includes the high temperature for the following day. The next day on CBS46 News at 6pm they will compare the forecast high temperature to the actual high temperature. Each time their forecast high temperature is within three degrees of the actual high, CBS46 will donate $50 to the Brighter DeKalb Foundation.  Donations will support the needs of individuals living with mental illness, addiction and developmental disabilities.
