Change Rangers: Be a Hero for Kids

Unique Blend of Mischief and Compassion will Support Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

Halloween’s still months away, but you have a chance to dress up and collect loot right now — for a good cause, too. A somewhat mischievous compassion (think: a cross of Robin Hood and Jesse James) is what being a Mix 100.5 Change Ranger is all about: “raiding” that unmissed extra and taking it to where it’s appreciated most — Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.

Register online for free and the hospital will provide you with an official Change Ranger get-up complete with money bag, Radiothon collection box and bandana. Your job, then, is easy: ask co-workers, friends and relatives to “put-em-up” and surrender every spare nickel, dime and quarter in their pockets or purse.  If they’re penny-pinchers, remind them that it’s for a good cause.

All Change Rangers are invited to a free celebratory lunch in February, and the top Change Rangers will win great Mix prizes, so you’d better get moving. Feel free to recruit the help of your own gang of Merry Men, too. 

The Change Rangers program is part of the 7th Annual Mix 100.5 Cares for Kids Radiothon, which will broadcast live from the Strong Memorial Hospital Lobby on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 16 and 17, and from Eastview Mall  (near Lord & Taylor) on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 18 and 19.  Phone-in pledges are welcome during the broadcast by dialing 241-KIDS.
