ASTRAL MEDIA'S NATIONAL DAY OF CARING FOR KIDS RADIOTHON

APRIL 29, 2010 - LET'S MAKE IT A RECORD YEAR!

Thursday April 29th from 5:30am to 6:00pm, more than 50 ASTRAL RADIO stations will take part in raising MILLIONS of Dollars for Children’s Hospitals and pediatric health centres across the country. Last year the 2009 Radiothon collected over $7Million in donations; the largest sum ever raised in a single-day radiothon in Canada. To kickstart fundraising many ASTRAL stations are encouraging listeners to sign up to be official Change Crusaders / Bandits to “loot spare change” from family, friends, classmates & co-workers as a fun way to raise funds and make a big difference. Join the cause now and become a fan on facebook.
