AKRON -- Our own Hollie Strano and John Anderson dropped by Akron Children's Hospital on Wednesday in full costume to read books to kids.

It was part of a bet the duo made when creating their March Madness brackets. When trying to determine what the loser would have to do, many viewers suggested we make the bet all about charity.

There were no losers.

Empowering Punch and their members got involved and helped donate more than 1,000 books to the hospital's library. The books will be shared by 23 pediatric facilities.

Hollie dressed as Dorothy and John portrayed the Cowardly Lion from the "Wizard of Oz."
