SYNDICATED SOLUTIONS and THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW, successfully conducted a two-day Radiothon with the humanitarian charity organization WORLD VISION. This was the third straight year they've partnered with WORLD VISION. The Radiothon, held on THURSDAY and FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13th and 14th, resulted in over 825 children (and counting) being sponsored worldwide.
SSI Pres. BOB CAREY said, "The power of THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW continues to amaze. The program enjoys such a loyal following and whenever called upon the listeners respond time and time again. We are very blessed with our successes and it's so important for us to give back in a meaningful way with our resources and platform. The philanthropic marriage with WORLD VISION helps us accomplish this and I am very proud of our successes to help so many kids in need around the globe. Over the past three years we’ve improved the lives of over 2600 children worldwide and I couldn't be more proud of RICK BURGESS, BILL 'BUBBA' BUSSEY, our team and without question one of the best audiences in all of radio. These successes are beyond gratifying. I also need to formally thank our outstanding affiliates and sponsors, because without them, this tremendous accomplishment would not be possible."
RICK BURGESS and BILL "BUBBA" BUSSEY commented, "Until three years ago, we hadn’t done a Radiothon and weren't sure what to expect. When SSI introduced WORLD VISION and we learned about how impressive an organization they are, we wanted in. The global impact we’ve been able to make on over 825 children’s lives this year, and over 2600 children since 2009, is beyond words. The overwhelming response from our listeners and the ability to be part of something so meaningful just blows us away. Doing what we do for a living and being able to make such an impact through WORLD VISION really does make it all worth while."
