Day ONE Working the Fall Share-A-Thon

Christian/Faith radio stations have a "handicap" when it comes to advertising dollars coming into their stations that you may not have considered.

Like the station I represent, KHRT AM/FM, in Minot ND, we do not accept advertising dollars from bars, casinos, or liquor and tobacco companies.

To make up for the lose of those dollars we have a Fall and a Spring "Share-A-Thon". Our share-a-thon started today and runs for a week.

I've volunteered to help out all week so I will be answering the phones, on the air, and doing anything else I can do to help out (including making this post).

I'd like to urge you to support your local Christian/Faith radio station. If you don't have one and you would like to support ours give me a call at 701-852-3789 (ask for me).

Thanks,

Morning Bob.

The power of faith will always be the answer.  I'm sure the answer will be provided ,along with the funds to make it a successful event.

Yesterday was a GREAT start Kasey & John Boles . The 1st day is usually slow but not yesterday .

Roy Kelley , it's easy when it's something you believe in very strongly.

Thank you Debbie Reynolds . The Share-A-Thon fills a the gap where we do not accept advertising from casinos, liquor, or tobacco.

Endre Barath, Jr. it's something I've really enjoyed doing for the last 16 years. As you can imagine I've made a lot of friends at and through the station.

James Dray I'm amazed every time I do this. Amazed with the generosity of the callers, their stories of why they are moved to give, and I'm amazed at how we always meet our goal even when it looks like we are a mile off on the last day of the event.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm - I know you and KHRT will make this Share-A-Thon will be very successful. I agree with James Dray that faith and people of faith are very powerful and a force to be reckoned with.....  Much success!

Another wonderful local post Bob "RealMan" Timm and I pray the Fall Share-A-Thon has more than its share of attention and donations!

We just started day 3 and the response has been wonderful Lisa Von Domek . I've helped out many years with past Shar-A-Thons and despite our our local economy being sluggish this is the BEST year I can remember.

I hadn't thought about what issues a Christian broadcasting operation would have with advertising dollars, Bob.  It's something thing think about!  I suspect that Hobby Lobby or Chick Fil A would be good candidates however.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) 8 days ago

We do not have Chick Fil A here Myrl Jeffcoat but we do have Hobby Lobby so thank you for that great idea.
