On January 12, a series of earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 6.5 to 7.3 devastated the island of Haiti
AM 1310 The Light and The American Red Cross of Central Indiana are asking for your help to support emergency relief and recovery efforts to help those people affected by the earthquake in Haiti.
This Thursday from 6am til 6pm, The AM 1310 The Light Haiti Relief Radiothon will take place, where we will have a special 1-800 number open with volunteers standing by to take your donations to the American Red Cross!
Whatever you can give will go a long way in the relief effort…
Thank you for your generosity from the American Red Cross and Indy’s Source For Inspiration and Praise, AM 1310 The Light!
