Thanks to all of you who contributed to the 25th Annual Salvation Army Bed and Bread Club Radiothon that took place last Friday and was heard on 760 WJR. Last year WJR raised $1.5 million to feed the hungry and homeless. This year I was fortunate enough to co-host the radiothon, and you responsed with an increased total amount of $1,733,977. Many thanks for your heartfelt contributions. That money will feed 5,000 people a day for the next 365 days. Once again, an amazing response from my readers and listeners on DickPurtan.com.
Over the last 2 years, I have moved from radio, to a website and now a podcast, and you have been there with me every step of the way. When I have done the Salvation Army Bed and Bread Club Radiothon every year with exception of last year, I am proud and amazed at what we, together, have been able to accomplish and this year is no exception. I thank you for that.
P.S. We have a picture gallery of photos from our day at Oakland Mall.
