This year marks People TV Atlanta’s 2nd Annual Live On-Air Fund-a-Thon on Georgia Gives Day. Georgia Gives Day is a full 24-hour day of online donations to support non-profit organizations throughout the state of Georgia.
People TV (Cable Channel 24 on Comcast) will air 10 straight hours from 12PM EST until 10PM EST on Thursday, November 12, 2015. The programming will feature live and prerecorded performances from local artist and celebrities, interviews with leaders of local non-profit organizations, and screenings of classic and modern television programs. There will also be prize giveaways throughout “People TV Fund-a-Thon.” People TV hopes that this program will increase public funding for the community-funded program.
