NYC Radio Jayde Donovan To Host Annual iPad Giveaway

Cumulus Media’s 95.5 PLJ in New York is supporting morning show co-host Jayde Donovan’s Apple-A-Day Foundation to spread joy to pediatric cancer patients by honoring the memory of her friend Brittany, who passed away from bone cancer.

Jayde, co-host of the station's "Todd & Jayde In the Morning," launched the program on what would have been Brittany’s birthday, April 22, 2011. Since that time, she and her team of volunteers have surprised 600+ pediatric cancer patients with new iPads.

Every weekday in the month of May, Jayde has surprised a pediatric cancer patient with their very own iPad! 95.5 PLJ listeners got to hear the stories of patients battling pediatric cancer and how much they will benefit from receiving their own iPad. The station’s efforts to support this cause will culminate in the giving of iPads to 20 brave kids from the tri-state area at the “iPad Party” hosted by Jayde and the crew at 95.5 PLJ this Sunday, June 3rd. The iPad recipients will get to bring their families along for a day of fun at the radio station at Hackensack Meridian Health Stage 17. 

The Apple-A-Day Foundation motto is: “Helping Kids Stay Connected While Fighting Cancer," providing pediatric cancer patients (ages 2-17) with devices (tablets, smart phones) so that they may experience simple joys such as listening to music, FaceTime, taking pictures, and watching movies, enabling them to stay in contact with family, friends, and the outside world.

Chad Lopez, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Media-New York, said: “Congratulations to Jayde and Apple-A-Day! I look forward to this event year and seeing the joy this brings to these families and children makes it all worthwhile.”

Donovan said: "Kids should be outside playing and having fun. When they get sick, it can get very lonely in the hospital. The gift of an iPad allows them to connect with friends and family when they would otherwise be limited. Technology becomes a bridge to a world they temporarily can’t be a part of. That’s what Apple a Day is all about.”
