Since the first Pledge Day in 1974, QR Calgary has devoted the first Friday in December to Calgary kids and local charities, creating positive change in the community.

The 2023 charities include Accessibility Renovations for Kids, Autism/Asperger’s Friendship Society and Jammies From Grammies, to name a few.

Once the radiothon commences, you can tune in to hear about the outstanding work the Calgary Children’s Foundation does and donate what you can for those who may otherwise fall through the cracks.

The Calgary Children’s Foundation focuses on small, grassroots charities who are not able to hold substantial fundraisers. Pledges of monetary support will be graciously accepted from listeners, retailers and corporations for the Calgary Children’s Foundation.
