BLUE RIDGE BROADCASTING Contemporary Christian WMIT (106.9 THE LIGHT)/ASHEVILLE, NC will raise funds for CHRISTIAN BLIND MISSION (CBM) to fight trachoma, an eye disease affecting the vision of 40 million people around the world. This effort is the station's annual spring fundraising event to raise awareness and support for an international need.
WMIT will dedicate airtime from 6a to 6:30p on TUESDAY (3/15) to raise awareness of trachoma and provide funds for medical supplies that can prevent blindness due to the disease.
"This is an amazing opportunity. With a small investment, people can have a profound impact on the lives of those affected by this blinding disease, and that impact will be shared in the name of Christ," said Exec. Dir. JIM KIRKLAND.
