Rady Children’s Holiday of Miracles:

Serve our Youth in America’s Finest and Kindest City

In the last week, we were blessed to support the Rady Children’s Holiday of Miracle Campaign for the 5th year in a row.

I will never forget the day we had to take an ambulance from our pediatrician to Children’s Hospital when our child couldn’t breathe.

In a single breath everything changes…

Every year Rady Children’s provides care to 200,000 kids as the go-to-facility for 88% of the kids in San Diego (and many from Orange and Riverside) county, where more than 50% of the families do not have the wherewithal to pay for their care, yet no one is turned away….

Mission Fed does a matching pledge every year, our staff runs the phone banks, and we get on the air to help create awareness of and support for this important cause which we helped re-imagine and rename 5 years ago.

The day we were in doing the live radio-thon, there were 294 kids in the hospital, 28 for cancer or blood disorders, 66 in the medical/surgical unit, 23 in neonatal intensive care, 33 in critical care to mention just a few, and 270 children had visited the ER in the last 24 hours!

We got to hear Athena’s story about her daughter Eve (pictured below), and as a result of the Mission Fed matching offer a KyXy listener named Geneva made a $1,000 call in pledge, along with so many other generous callers.

Through the collective support of our 5th Annual Holiday of Miracles Radiothon we raised $284,000, which brings the grand total to more than $1,384,000 in five years!

These funds go to support the highest and greatest needs of the hospital which include patient care, technology, equipment and research.

Thanks to all of you that do great work to help our kids stay safe and well, and to the CBS Radio team that puts energy and passion into amplifying this cause every year.

Examples of partnership like this validate that we are indeed America’s Finest and Kindest City!

Banks Supporting their Communities- This is Cool

by Paul Greeley

How do you feel about banks?

I know, not a subject that stirs deep emotion. If you feel anything, it might be irritation every time you have to withdraw your cash and you have to pay that $3 fee when you can’t find your bank’s ATM.

And what about bank advertising? Seen any good bank TV ads lately? Yeah, I know.

But here’s something different from TD Bank. It selected 24 mostly random customers and offered them an average amount of $30,000 each to go out and do something good for their community. Start now and you have 24 hours.

What would you do with the money?


Wash me for Cancer:

(a) WASH ME?  or

(b) Do a  pretty drawing?

IN  MEMORY . . .

These  are the colors that represent the different cancers. All you are asked  to do is keep this circulating. Even if it’s to one more person. In  memory of anyone you know that has been struck by  cancer.
