Radiothon 2016 raises $126,000!
Radiothon is such a huge part of Kids Kottage, every year. Not only is it a huge part of our annual fundraising, it also serves as such an important reminder of why we do what we do, and how impossible that would be without the kind and generous support of our community.
This year, once again, our Radiothon was live on 105.9 SHINE FM and AM 930 The Light, who have always been such huge supporters of the Kottage. And this year, once again, your generosity has overwhelmed us, and ensured that we can continue welcoming vulnerable kids at Kids Kottage, and supporting their parents.
As December and our Radiothon campaign came to an end, thanks to your generosity, we had surpassed our goal of $123,000, raising a mind-blowing $126,000 to support the crisis nursery!
Thank you so much to everyone who phoned in with a donation, who donated online, or who came to see us in person. Thank you to our volunteers on the phones, our sponsors, our friends at 105.9 Shine FM and AM 930 The Light. Thank you to everyone who came by the office all December long with donations of new toys and gently used clothing and items from our wishlist, which didn’t count towards our Radiothon total but will go such a long way towards helping us put a smile on the faces of the vulnerable Edmonton children we see everyday!
Radiothon was an amazing day. We had cookie decorating, with cookies donated by Dutch Delicious, we had massage therapy students from MaKami College offering free massages for donations, we had live entertainment all day long from talented young singers from all over northern Alberta thanks to Pure Artists. Special thanks to ZGM for helping us out with marketing!
Thank you so much to everyone who called in, donated online, sent in Match Money, and volunteered for us at West Edmonton Mall. We could not continue to keep vulnerable Edmonton area kids safe without you!
Thank you to our sponsors:
