Even though the holidays are over, the big blue tree on Mulberry and College is still shining.

This means that we still need your help for Townsquare Cares: Blue Christmas, our campaign to help Realities for Children with their NightLights fundraiser.

The fundraiser allows the public to sponsor a light on the NightLights Tree, with 100% of the proceeds going towards the care of the local abused, neglected, or at-risk children that Realities for Children helps.

While a typical sponsorship is $100, the non-profit graciously accepts any amount. No matter how big or small, every donation helps to bring these children out of the darkness of child abuse.

We want to say a huge 'thank you!' to everyone who has donated as of yet. Because ofo your generosity, the NightLights campaign has raised $146,013 so far.

However, these children are in need of help far beyond the holidays. In order to provide them with year-round care, Realities for Children is hoping to raise up to $250,000.

The fundraiser ends on December 31, which means we have five days left to reach our goal.
