Northwestern Media listeners partnered with OneChild to sponsor over 1,000 children. On January 27-28, 9 Northwestern Media music radio stations and the Faith Radio Network held events to find sponsors for children living in extreme poverty in 14 countries around the world.
“This was the largest radio event in the 60-year history of OneChild.”, says Faron Dice, OneChild’s National Director of Radio and Artist Engagement. “We are so excited because child sponsorship works! The lives of these kids will be changed forever and the long-term impact of this event cannot be measured. Communities will be changed. Nations will be changed! I am so thankful for the talent and passion of the Northwestern Media team!”
Jason Sharp, Senior Vice President for Media at Northwestern added “Many in our network said that our OneChild event was the highlight of their career! OneChild’s emphasis on relationships made the difference, never forgetting it was about the kids and nothing else. We look forward to working with Faron Dice and the OneChild team again soon.”
Members of the Northwestern team had a chance to see the work of OneChild firsthand when they visited Honduras in November.
OneChild is a 60+ year old ministry that brings hope, truth, live, love, and mercy to over 40,000 children living in extreme poverty in 14 nations around the world.
