AJ’s Kids Crane
Brad Perry spent his morning helping Star 94.1's AJ Machado of the “AJ in the Morning” show kick off his “AJ's kids crane” helping to raise donated toys for the children at Rady Children's Hospital.
For the ninth year in a row, AJ has taken up residence (eating, sleeping, etc.)
on an 8' x 10' platform that is elevated up to 60-feet above ground until his annual toy collecting goal is achieved. “AJ's Kids Crane” will take place in the parking lot of IKEA in Mission Valley. It took 7 days to reach last year's goal of 101,000 toys, so AJ's crossing his fingers for sunny skies in the month ahead.
“Despite our difficult economy, San Diegans have always shown their generosity and we're confident that this year will be no exception,” said AJ Machado, host of Star 94.1's new “AJ in the Morning” show. “Something as simple as a toy can make the fear and pain of a child's illness or injury easier to bare. The toys we collect now will brighten the lives of thousands of children receiving treatment at Rady Children's Hospital over the next 12 months.”
Toy contributions and funds will be accepted during the “AJ's Kids Crane” event at the IKEA in Mission Valley, at all San Diego County Medifast locations and at all Pacific Marine Credit Union locations. Financial donations can be made online at ajmornings.com.
