Here in South Florida we know better than most how difficult it is to pick up the pieces and rebuild after a hurricane. Now imagine a foot of snow making things even worse…

In response, Spanish Broadcasting System is launching a fundraising drive for AmeriCares Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. The three-day “Hispanos Unidos” campaign kicks off today with a radio/telethon on the company’s radio and television station MegaTV. Listeners of the company’s 22 Spanish-language stations will also be invited to donate by phone, text message or via the AmeriCares website

To donate, call 1-800-806-2760, text “live” to 25383 or go to americares.org/hispanosunidos
