S-VOX offers free TV airtime for Haiti relief appeals

TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - S-VOX, Canada's leading provider of programming content on spirituality, faith, personal growth and wellness, is offering free airtime on all of its broadcast properties to humanitarian aid organizations delivering relief to Haiti.

In the aftermath of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on Jan. 12, as many as three million citizens of this impoverished country are in need of emergency aid.

S-VOX operates the national basic cable network VisionTV, local stations Joytv 10 in the B.C. Lower Mainland and Joytv 11 in Winnipeg, and the digital television service One: the Body, Mind & Spirit channel. For airtime inquiries, please contact Tore Stautland at tores@tmginc.com.

Said S-VOX President and CEO Bill Roberts: "Our thoughts are with the people of Haiti, who must summon immense courage in this hour of hardship. As citizens of a wealthy country, we have a moral obligation to reach out to those in such great need. S-VOX encourages all of its viewers and partners to lend all possible support to humanitarian relief efforts."

S-VOX has produced special programming on the crisis in Haiti (visit www.p3tv.ca to view a special episode of the Joytv series P3: People, Places, Perspectives), and has organized an employee fundraising challenge.
