Dear Colleague,

Barbados-based CBU member station, Starcom Network, in partnership with the Nation Corporation and the Rotary Clubs of Barbados, is launching ‘We Care – One People. One Caribbean Hurricane Relief Effort’.

The media and NGO partners are seeking to mobilise monetary pledges and donations for the cause of rebuilding life in the countries and territories impacted by Hurricane Irma.

The fund-raising effort involves radio and newspaper promotion in collaboration with the Rotary Clubs of Barbados and culminates with a radio-thon across all Starcom radio stations on Saturday September 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Eastern Caribbean Time).

CBU member stations in the hardest-hit countries are invited to participate during Saturday’s dedicated programming, including with situation reports and details of the priority needs in affected areas.  Stations interested in relaying the Starcom radio-thon are invited to contact Station Manager, Mr David Ellis for further details.
