August 16, 2012 at 7:47 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL COMMUNITIES, the community engagement division of CLEAR CHANNEL, and MYGOODDEED, the 9/11 nonprofit which annually organizes the federally-recognized 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance, will team up to observe the anniversary of 9/11 in service to people and communities in need with millions of dollars in donated media. CLEAR CHANNEL's nationwide commitment includes radio air time, digital billboard placement and employee engagement.
CLEAR CHANNEL SPECTACOLOR helped kick off this year’s campaign entitled "I Will," which calls on listeners to perform good deeds and charitable acts to honor 9/11 victims, survivors and those who responded to the attacks nearly 11 years ago. This morning, CLEAR CHANNEL OUTDOOR digital screens in TIMES SQUARE displayed images of military veterans, first responders, 9/11 family members, supporters and members of the general public as they took turns standing on a 30-foot "I Will" sculpture and declaring what good deeds they will perform this year in observance of 9/11. ELVIS DURAN, host of ELVIS DURAN AND THE MORNING SHOW in NEW YORK on WHTZ (Z100), which is syndicated by PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS, was also on site in NEW YORK CITY to help launch the national initiative.
"The overall level of participation surrounding the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was astounding, and we hope to build on last year’s success," said CLEAR CHANNEL Dir./Community Engagement JESSICA KING. "CLEAR CHANNEL's efforts are intended to remind people across the U.S. that they can pay tribute to those impacted by 9/11 by engaging in simple positive acts."
