Angel Aloma of Food for the Poor joins Gus for Project Christmas Phase I. Food for the Poor annually kicks Project Christmas off with Seize the Day on Giving Tuesday and it's unique from all the other charities we assist. People can pledge straight cash donations but can also pledge to feed a family for a year, clothe an orphan, build a well, donate piglets, cows and beehives for poor families in 17 countries in the Caribbean and Latin America. Today, we raised $14,117.33 in pledges for them. If you weren't able to call in and pledge, but would like to donate anyway, you can do so by clicking here.
And, since today is Giving Tuesday, Gus asks listeners to call and share what their favorite charities are and why they support them. He also talks with listeners who've been helped by a particular charity.
