Our 4th annual Month of Giving raised a record amount this year. Thank
you very much to all of you who helped make it a great 17 days.
This year we raised an amazing $92,765 in 17 days of auctions as well as some individuals who just donated cash.
I started the Month of Giving in December of 2011 with the hopes of raising $25,000 that month for various charities that help the less fortunate people in Edmonton. I was blown away when we raised $50,400 that year.
We raised $55,600 in 2012, $77,150 last year and now $92,765 this year.
In four years we have raised an amazing $275,915.00.
You have helped us make a difference in many people’s lives, for simple necessities like food. We should never take for granted how lucky some of us are, and I believe we need to look out for others and I’m so grateful that the listeners of TSN 1260 and the readers of Oilersnation feel the same way.
