PRESS RELEASE SHOW YOUR LOVE, MAKE A PLEDGE FOR DOMINICA

 

When disaster strikes, the best and worse comes out of human kind! 

Grenada prepares to show its best on Tuesday October  24th, 2017 in the form of a  National Telethon to raise funds for the Dominica Hurricane Relief Fund. The event will live on GBN Radio and TV from 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

 

Spearheaded by the Rotary Clubs in Grenada, the event has the potential to raise tens of thousands of dollars.  All electronic media outfits are on board as Grenada embarks on one of its most intensive fundraising event.

 

The nation population will be able to commit funds to this noble undertaking by calling  440-2111 or 444-COOP (444-2667).  Online listeners will not be left out, as pledges can be made over the via the following email – [email protected].

 

The host for the event will be Popular Theatre Director, Playwright and Storyteller, Richardo Keens-Douglas.  Rotarians, Rotaractors, Bankers, Auditors and other volunteers will be giving their time and expertise. To finalise the pledges made, volunteers would be calling to arrange acceptance of the funds from October 26, 2017.

 

Corporate Grenada has commenced its pledging and some business leaders have agreed to make live presentations during the National Telethon.

 

By taking part in the Telethon, we do several things, but most of all, we extend our sympathy, build hope and show love to our Dominican brothers and sisters.

 

Rotary is the world’s largest volunteer community organisation and enjoys the respect of the international community for its high level of integrity and transparency.

 

Commenting on the potential of the Telethon, both President Steve and Sholini stated that “… what makes this event more significant is the fact that we are doing this fully aware of the long and difficult road to recovery we undertook after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Let’s all dig deeper for Dominica”. 

 

“I’ll pledge ….. I will make a pledge.”
