A Phone-a-Thon for the Foundation of Stars - 1-855-STARS99 - You have the magic power to change things

MONTREAL, Nov. 21, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The foundation of stars is Québec's largest source of private funding for pediatric research and will hold on December 4th, its major year-end campaign with a Phone-a-Thon. Since we are not presenting our traditional early December Annual Telethon of Stars this year, your participation to our campaign is of great importance to us.

As of today, please listen to Rouge FM, Boom FM and CJAD 800 AM networks, to obtain complete details about our Phone-a-Thon, which will be held on Sunday, December 4th from 10:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M., all over Québec.

On that Sunday, we encourage you to reach out and help our sick children by dialing 1-855-stars99. Our partners and volunteers will proceed to answer incoming calls from donors as well as making outgoing calls to the Foundation of Stars' faithful community of contributors. Have your credit card number ready or simply call to make a pledge, which you can mail back to us later.

Or better yet, visit our website at: www.foundationofstars.ca.

Health for all children is our utmost priority. As we get closer to the holiday season, think of these children and their families. They all have one wish in common: To Be Healthy!

By being a part of this campaign, you are participating in the magic of research.
