Well, the 13 Days Of Christmas Campaign Against Child Abuse has started.
It's Week 2, and over $200,000 has been collected. John's show is on between 5:30AM and 9:00AM EST.
John raises funds and gifts to give the children and families who have been the victims of abuse a better Christmas.
Derringer is a philanthropic Radio Station Talk Show Host here in Toronto and is on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Center for Abuse Awareness.
This is an issue that I hope atheists and theists can unite on and support the cause together.
Here are some more videos from YouTube on the topic.
They are painful to watch, but the children they depict have been through a lot more than you will go through by watching them.
This one is for the theists because it has religious overtones.
Child Abuse of all kinds is a terrible crime.
It's up to us as a society to help. Look deep into the eyes of these children, be aware that there are other children out there suffering, and make these children, as well as adult survivors of Child Abuse the priority.
Preventing Child Abuse is everyone's responsibility.
His Campaign will continue for the next 12 days (usually 13 but Dec 13 is on a Saturday this year) and on the last day he will be holding a Marathon all day.
Don't forget to visit the online auction which includes rock memorabilia at http://www.q107.com and runs until Dec. 13.
