About Rise Again Bahamas
What is the Rise Again Bahamas Mediathon?
Rise Again Bahamas Mediathon is a collaborative initiative of the Government of Barbados and the locally based media with its primary objective to raise funds to support relief efforts for the ravaged islands of the Bahamas that were hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian just over a week ago. This national effort takes the format of a ‘telethon’ on the local free to air TV station CBC TV 8, shared across all other available media inclusive of radio, print media and internet broadcasts, in an endeavour to expand the reach and optimize the opportunity to engage audiences from every demographic.
Barbadians and everyone within reach of the mediathon are being asked to pledge their support and give to the fund which will be administered through CDEMA, ensuring it benefits those who need it. The Mediathon begins at 3pm and pledges and donations can be made by calling 228-6288 or 467-5507 and via whatsapp at 467-5444. Persons wishing to make immediate payments can do so online at www.riseagainbahamas.com or can come to CBC, the Pine to make cash and cheque donations.
The fund is open at all branches of First Caribbean International Bank and donations can be made to CDEMA BAHAMAS/BARBADOS RELIEF FUND account number 1001186684.
Call (246) 228-6288 to pledge or pay during the telethon.
