Children’s Charity helps families breathe easier

The Children’s Charity helps families all over B.C. breathe a little easier.

Whether it’s saving lives, enhancing lives or enriching lives for children who have special needs, Variety – The Children’s Charity helps families all over B.C. breathe a little easier.

To help the charity continue to help more families in Campbell River and the Comox Valley, the DJs at The Eagle 97.3 FM are turning their microphones on May 29 and 30 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and hosting the fifth annual Variety Children’s Radiothon.

Last year, the Radiothon raised over $28,474 all of which stayed in the Courtenay/Campbell River area to help local families.

Similar to Variety’s hugely successful Show of Hearts Telethon, the Variety Children’s Radiothon raises money for children who have special needs.

All of the funds raised in the Courtenay/Campbell River area will stay in the area to help local families.

If you would like to give now, you can text the word KIDS to 45678 and $10 will be added to your cell phone bill or visit www.variety.bc.ca to make a donation of any amount. Help spread the word with the Twitter hashtag #VarietyRadiothon and let others know how they can contribute.

For more information, contact the event co-ordinator at carlene.field@variety.bc.ca or 1-604-320-0505.
