How you make hope possible
You make hope possible is more than just a catchy tagline. Your support of 99.9 Live FM is deeply impacting lives and shaping our community in a profound way.
Supporting Townsville through the biggest flood disaster in our history
During the height of the floods, you helped us broadcast to our listeners around the clock. For some, Live FM was their only source of news as they lost power and bunkered down in their homes. Your support enabled Live FM to match up-to-date information with encouragement and support as thousands across our city faced significant loss and devastation.
“During the floods you guys pretty much kept us going through, with no power and all the messages, we had 99 on, all the time, it felt like you guys were in the house with us.” – Janine
Our hearts were so moved as we shared the stories of resilience, strength and generosity that shone through in the midst of the challenges. These are the stories we love to tell!
We were also part of Team Townsville, alongside the local churches, the Townsville City Council, and YWAM. You helped us go door to door to over 17,500 homes to check in on the well-being of residents in the most flood affected areas. It was a joy to be a listening ear, as well as assisting people to connect with the ongoing services and support they needed.
“Seeing the work that you were doing during the floods was really inspiring, for normal people to get out there and have a chat to their neighbours and ask them how they were doing and talking to people that you otherwise might not chat to particularly in a hard time like the floods were.” – Ben
Adding light to a person’s day
Your support enables us to be a source of joy, encouragement, positivity and hope as our listeners tune in – any time of day or night!
“We have a podiatry and mental health practice, Live FM has to be on in the practice all the time.” – Judy
Taking the message beyond the airwaves
Events have the ability to build a sense of community identity. Over the past 12 months, your support has enabled Live FM to have a presence at over 25 local events and schools, where we’ve shared the “It’s Good to be Alive” message while expanding Live FM’s listenership.
Your support has also enabled Live FM to advocate for positive, inspiring and uplifting movies to be screened in our local cinemas.
Building healthy families
Our deep desire is to see Townsville grow in a positive way and to see people thriving in all areas of life. Your support enables us to broadcast on-air content that adds value to our audience’s lives. This includes insights for marriage and parenting, kids programs, and biblical teaching.
“As a young Dad, I tune in to Live FM to hear the parenting tips. It really helped me know how to be there for my family.” – Mark
Building local businesses across our region
Every month your support enables Live FM to host business breakfasts for local businesses in Townsville. This provides an opportunity for local businesses to hear and support the vision of Live FM, while giving us greater insight and understanding into the growth of our region, and how we can better serve the community.
Over the past 7 months, your support has enabled us to connect with 63 businesses through these events.
The future’s so bright for Townsville as we see signs of rejuvenation and development. Anything is possible for our community as it grows. Invest into Live FM and help shape our community into all it can be! Together we can bring real Hope!
“It’s an amazing feeling when the weight of the world drops off your shoulders whilst listening.”
