Tomorrow morning, WFNX turns over its airwaves to a "Help for Haiti" radiothon, to raise awareness and collect donations for Haitian relief. The proceeds will go directly to Partners In Health, the Boston-based charity that's been providing health care and other assitance to Haiti for two decades. Here's the official press release:
1369 COFFEEHOUSE: is giving away free drinks until 1, and collecting donations for the Boston-based charity Partners In Health, which sends doctors to poor countries around the world.
FLOUR BAKERY: both locations are donating half of today's sales to Haiti.
COLLABORATIVE EARTHQUAKE RELIEF EFFORT FOR HAITI: today from 10am-6pm at Hiberian Hall in Roxbury, accepting donations of food, clothes, and money to Partners In Health, American Red Cross, and Boston Foundation.
In the past, United States Senator John Kerry's Francophonic prowess has hobbled him politically. During his unsuccessful presidential bid against George Bush, enemies charged that Kerry's alleged French appearance proved that he was an elitist pussy. The scare tactic worked, effectively losing him the vote of everyone who has never been to France but who thinks all French people are assholes.
Ah, Christian charity. Doubtless there are God-fearing folks doing good works in this hour of need. And then there's PAT ROBERTSON. With the aid number up on the screen, the 700 Club host launched into an epic diversion on the roots of how the Haitians came to be "cursed."
