'NATIONAL DAY OF CARING FOR KIDS RADIOTHON' : THURSDAY, MAY 5TH

OVER 20 HOSPITALS & CARE FACILITIES TO BENEFIT

Over 60 Astral radio stations across Canada will be taking part in this national broadcast event on Thursday May 5th from 6am-6pm. Thousands of people are involved in this project to generate substantial funds to support local care facilities; last year's total exceeded $7 Million directed to Children's Miracle Network & other children's charities. (Photo Credit: SickKids 2010)

The goal is always to raise more. Donations can be made via the Astral Radio online properties until May 8th. Fundraising is already in high-gear with postings on
the official facebook page; news of local market fundraising & location of the live broadcasts. And many examples of the types of compelling real stories you will hear the day of the radiothon. To demonstrate, here is a 2011 Crystal Awards PSA 'Silver' winning entry - Astral Radio Calgary 'My Brother's Waiting for You in Heaven'... you will be moved to tears. Please give generously.
