Gasps and cheers as the final number is revealed.
$1.9 million raised to support special needs children in BC.
That beats last year’s total of $1.8 million dollars.
Executive Director Jen Schaeffers.
“I just see this total and I think of how many more children we are going to be able to help next year and I am just so grateful. So grateful to our listeners and to our viewers who turned into Global BC. Thank you so much for opening your hearts, opening your wallets, we appreciate it. We will make sure the money goes towards the most vulnerable children in the province. Thank you so much.”
The money will go towards everything from speech therapy and medical equipment to summer camps.
