There are many organizations across Region 8 that provide wonderful services for their respective communities. With KAIT reaching over 300,000 homes in NE Arkansas and SE Missouri, I'm sure you can imagine the frequent requests we receive from these groups to provide some type of assistance... mostly on-air recognition for their cause or event. Although they are all worthwhile and very deserving of this exposure, with that many requests we are only able to provide limited visibility for each effort.
We have decided to try something new in 2007 and we need your help to make it happen. We would like to adopt one charity this year and provide that group with the resources that will ensure all of Region 8 is aware of their mission. Here's how you can get involved.
The decision on which charity to adopt will be based in part on the stories we hear from you. These stories will, in essence, be an informal customer satisfaction survey of those who got direct benefit from a charity.
We'll announce our decision before the end of the month. The selected charity will get a monetary contribution along with a plan to help them maximize their exposure in Region 8 by using the power of our distribution network - KAIT-TV, kait8.com, KAIT 24/7 Weather, The Tube and K8 to Go:Wireless.
