This week on the Mid-day Memo, we’ll be hearing about a ton of cool stuff, from sexy and exciting parking projects to the life-changing gays over at Netflix’s Queer Eye! We’ll also hear from our live-on-location reporter Kayla Buehler about the Winnipeg Humane Society’s 1001 Donations Telethon. The telethon runs this Saturday from 11 a.m. till 5 p.m., and it’s your chance to donate some cash in support of our neglected furry friends.
Manitoba is home to many an animal lover, with approximately one dog for every 13 people in Winnipeg. That’s a lot of dogs! But unfortunately, Manitoba’s also home to some big major jerks, or at least some irresponsible semi-jerks. Stories like that of Gracie, Anastasia, and Chino (all available to watch on the Humane Society website) remind us that not everyone is looking out for the little (and sometimes big and slobbery) guy.
This Saturday’s telethon is a chance to show some love for those animals who never got enough! The telethon will be broadcast live from the Humane Society by some of our very own Cre-Comm students, who’ll be introducing viewers to their future best friends and asking for donations. The goal this year is $60,000 – and those adorable little monsters are asking for your help!
Tune in this Friday at noon to learn more about the telethon and whatever else might be in store on the 8th episode of the Mid-day Memo!
