I had an idea, why not use our air time? You're all used to hearing me talk all the time, so why not give some fantastic non-profit charitable organizations the same opportunities to get their message out on the air waves?
The Edmonton Boys and Girls Club Big Brothers & Sisters Mentorship Program, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (aka JDRF,) Kids with Cancer, The Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life, The Edmonton Food Bank, and Hope Mission, joined me and Sherwood Dodge at New Media's Corus Radio station to record a series of messages to encourage our community to volunteer or donate to help out these fantastic organizations.

Radio still truly is an effective and valuable way to not only keep Sherwood Dodge in the forefront of our clients' and potential customers' minds, but with this round of ads, we have decided to donate 2/3 of our air time to charity and thus the community at large, giving them the same marketing opportunities that we normally have.
Now radio listeners will get an introduction to numerous organizations helping out their friends, family, and neighborhoods daily, whether through mentoring children, feeding the hungry, or fighting diseases.
As I mentioned before, usually you hear a lot of my voice, but now with our entirely new approach to cross-culture marketing, you will hear details on these organizations' upcoming events, missions, needs - and most importantly, how you can get involved!
I hope you find it as refreshing as we all did to hear a 'sales pitch' to fight cancer, diabetes, mentor children, feed your community, and become involved with Edmonton volunteering through these charities and the community members.
Sherwood Dodge is proud to be a part of the Neurosurgery Kids' Fundraiser. This Fundraiser will take place on February 11, 2016 at John Paul 1 Elementary in Edmonton, AB. The funds raised will go to help pay for children to attend Camp Everest. Camp Everest is a four-day getaway for children who suffer from brain and spinal traumas. It gives them a fun and much-needed break from the serious illnesses these children suffer from.
Another exciting fundraiser for the Neuosurgery Kids' Fund is the DirtyBirds Charity Hockey Tournament which takes place annually. This tournament will be held May 27 and May 28, 2016. We look forward to seeing everyone come out and support this cause and these children.

The Oil Kings are a great team to watch and sometimes you can get lucky at their games and win a new Dodge Grand Caravan! Sherwood Dodge was happy to participate in this fun giveaway by donating the van. Congratulations!
