Well here we go! It’s the first week in December and the tradition continues with the 27th annual Radiothon to End Child Abuse.
We will begin the broadcast at Noon on Thursday and for the next 24 hours emphasize the need for prevention of child abuse. This is the 27th annual and so there’s rich history in the lakes area and with you, our listeners, offering support to those that need it. We know that with the pandemic there is added pressure in the household, but we also know that the agencies in our listening area including Cass, Crow Wing, Aitkin and Morrison counties, are working hard to make sure that households stay safe and we all grasp the reality of our responsibilities and actions.
We’ll be chatting with experts and asking you to give. It’s really simple to be part of the campaign. Just log on at Brainerd.com and click on the Radiothon Headphones to get details on pledging and shopping the Radiothon Auction. On line pledging can actually happen right now! So let’s start the process today.
You can pick up the phone starting Thursday at noon and pledge your support and of course challenge your friends, neighbors and colleagues to do the same! We’ll read your pledges on the air and give the call to your friends. And we hope you’ll help us by spreading the word on social media and by word of mouth. We know the office isn’t the same right now for a lot of you, so maybe a little extra effort is going to be required with a company email to get that kitty going.
We will not be out at the Westgate Mall for this turn at the wheel, but we’ll be set up back at the studios and we have worked with our partners to make sure the Phone Bank and Auction Centers will be staffed and ready to roll at various locations.
We know what kind of strength our communities have, and it’s time to show it again this Thursday and Friday with the 27th annual Radiothon to End Child Abuse.
