Thank you, thank you!!!

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.

I want to thank all the sponsors who donated auction items:

This year we helped out a few different charities. Your donations and bids helped many who really needed it. We helped out The Christmas Bureau, The Holiday Hamper, M.E Lazerte high school breakfast program, The MS Society, Operation Friendship Senior Society, Rotary Breakfast program and Santas Anonymous.

Thank you Edmonton and surrounding areas. We live in a wonderfully generous community and I’m proud to call Edmonton home.

Thank you once again, and please know you made Christmas and the next few weeks much more enjoyable for many people in need.

God bless you.

    Jason, this has always been one of the things that makes you stand out from other good personalities in our town… You are using the opportunity and success you’ve worked so hard to achieve to make others’ circumstances better. Well done, good and faithful servant.

    The one name that stood out to me on the sponsers list… Nail Yakupov.

    Quit riding the kid, quit saying he is going to bolt for the KHL. He has a heart of gold, appreciate that next time you want to spew venom.

    Awesome job Jason! The wife and I weren’t involved in any of these but we did what we could this holiday season. Nice to see the contributions and the generosity.

  • MacT's Neglected Helmet

    Thank you Jason for having a kind and thoughtful heart. Your enthusiasm is contagious for your many loyal listeners, and they are also kind hearted and thoughtful. Once again Jason, a tremendous success and a job well done. For the residents of Edmonton that will benefit from your fundraising, I can’t imagine the pride they feel in having you as a friend. God bless you Jason Gregor.

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Thank you for choosing to be that “I” again Jason Gregor.

  • Simmerdown

    Well done. When it’s all said and done, what we’re usually on here bitching about is a luxury. Good on Jason, the bidders and sponsors for helping out real life issues.

    Gregor, Im not going to lie to you. I am not your biggest fan in the world. I disagree with you more than I agree with you. I think you can be a little too pompous as well, however I will say that I feel for you because I think sometimes you get treated like crap by people/fans in this city. Probably the main reason I cant listen to any sports shows anymore. However, I do give you major props because you do so much for the city and so much for charities that I am always amazed by your generosity, and your thoughtfulness to the many organizations that you do. Cheers

      Steve, disagreeing with someone shouldn’t be a reason you don’t like them. If we all agreed then life would be boring, so don’t worry about it.

      As for people treating me like crap, I don’t feel that at all. I never worry about the vocal minority, and 99% of people are very fair. I appreciate you looking out for me, but I have a great job and I’ve never had anyone come up to me in person and be a jerk…haha… All of my interactions with listeners and sports fans has been more than good.
