9.00am: Hope-A-Thon 2013 IS ON!

The phones are now open in the live tally room for Hope-A-Thon 2013. An opportunity for you to get behind your favourite listener supported radio station and share hope with Sydney.

Every dollar of your gift will go straight into the daily operation of Hope 103.2, keeping the station on the air for over half a million people every month.

Great news also… You may remember last year we partnered with Compassion during Hope-A-Thon to send over 500 water filters to communities in the poorest parts of the world. When Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines this month, we immediately looked at how we can make a difference to the families affected by this disaster. We’ve worked hard with our friends at Compassion and a generous fan of Hope 103.2 to give our listeners a special opportunity to support Hope 103.2 AND neighbours in the Philippines.

When you become a Hope 103.2 ‘Partner for Hope’ with $30 a month or more, Compassion Australia will send an Emergency Relief Kit to a family in the Philippines.

Your support has a local and global impact. To make your donation to Hope 1032, or to become a monthly Partner for Hope and be a part of transforming our world, give the tally room team a call on 1300 36 1032 or donate online.
