May 14, 2013 at 7:12 AM (PT)
COX Top 40 WPOI (HOT 101.5)/TAMPA morning host JAYDE DONOVAN of "Hot Mornings with JAYDE" has launched the "Apple A Day" program in the TAMPA BAY area. Her mission-- is to honor the memory of her dear friend BRITTANY, who passed away in JUNE, 2010.
With the help of the GIVE HOPE FOUNDATION and THE PEDIATRIC CANCER FOUNDATION, her dream has grown into a program spreading joy in hearts of children across CENTRAL FLORIDA. JAYDE launched the Apple A Day Program on what would have been BRITTANY’s birthday, APRIL 22, 2011.
Every weekday in the month of MAY at 7:35a, JAYDE will surprise another pediatric cancer patient with their very own iPAD!
"I've seen how this one small gesture can change a child's outlook in such a positive way. This technology offers them a bridge into the world they are not currently able to be a part of. My program is not going to change the world, but it can change that child's world," said JAYDE.
To date, nine iPADS have been awarded and 22 in all will be distributed. It will culminate with an iPAD party at the HOT 101.5 Studios on JUNE 1st, where the recipients will receive their iPAD and have an ice cream party and tour the studios.
