At Hot 91.9FM, community is at the heart of everything we do and it’s through Hot Cares that we’re able to meaningfully touch the lives of hundreds individuals in need. It’s our birthday tradition, to host a Teddython, a 12-hour telethon ‘FUN’draiser, to secure funds for Hot Cares projects in the year to follow. At our inaugural Teddython in 2017, just over R1 million was pledged. 2018 saw the bar raised as we exceeded our R1.5 million target, to raise just over R2.1 million in pledges. But our expectations were obliterated in 2019 when we managed to raise a whopping R3.6 million in pledges and donations.
The challenges we’ve faced in 2020 have been unprecedented and it’s no surprise that Hot Cares has been overwhelmed by the desperation within our community. As a result, we are more excited than ever to continue this tradition because we know, and we’ve experienced first-hand, that giving back is the greatest gift of all.
We’ll be celebrating our 6th birthday with our Teddy-thon on Friday 20th November at Papachinos Broadacres with non-stop fundraising planned. From 6AM to 6h30PM, manned by the Hot 91.9 FM presenters and team, the phone lines will be a conduit for our loyal listeners, friends and partners to help us to continue making a difference in the lives of those around us. And, being Joburg’s Best Old Skool and R&B station, we’ve made sure that the entertainment is as awesome as the Teddy-thon initiative, with top local talent performing during the day and prizes throughout the day.
