CENTENNIAL BROADCASTING Hot AC WBQB (B-101.5)/FREDERICKSBURG, VA is helping listeners raise funds for the earthquake victims in HAITI.
B-101.5 is asking listeners to text to "RELIEFB1015" to 368266 to raise funds for the relief effort. for every text message received, up to 2,500 B101.5 would donate $10.00 to the AMERICAN RED CROSS HAITI RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT FUND. As of THURSDAY (1/21) WBQB surpassed their goal of 2,500 text messages and CENTENNIAL BROADCASTING parent company G-FORCE will make a $25,000 contribution.
OM CHRIS CARMICHAEL commented, "We gave listeners, who might not have been able to make a donation, a chance to still show their support to getting relief aid to HAITI by simply sending a text message. No other media company in the FREDERICKSBURG region has stepped up to make such a big donation to the RED CROSS in the name of their listeners."
