NEW YORK—Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving, is coming up on November 30 and the Broadcasters Foundation of America is asking for donations to help radio and television colleagues who are in acute need due to illness, accident, or disaster.
“There’s never been a better opportunity to make an impact by giving back and helping those in our business who have been hit by tragic and unthinkable circumstances,” said Tim McCarthy, co-president of the Broadcasters Foundation.
“As you’re thinking of the organizations you love and support, please consider including the Broadcasters Foundation in your donations,” added Scott Herman, chairman of the Broadcasters Foundation.
