People from around the world are reaching out and donating millions of dollars to help the disaster-ridden country of Haiti after a 7.0 earthquake destroyed nearly everything in site. And Southern Colorado has proven once again that it's eager to help those in need.
KKTV viewers have reached out to help in such a huge way and we want to thank you for your generosity.
On Wednesday and Thursday this week, KKTV staffed our Call for Action Lines with American Red Cross volunteers for two hours each day, taking calls of donations from our viewers. We were astounded to learn that in just four hours, KKTV viewers donated more than $22,000 to help in relief efforts for the people of Haiti!
Thank you for helping us help those in so much need after such a devastating disaster.
