Organizers say this year’s CMN radiothon a great success.Folks from Blueberry Broadcasting have been at the bangor mall since early Thursday morning, trying to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.They’ve been collecting change and donations, and taking pledges, all while sharing stories of children who have benefited from the services CMN helps to provide.Terri Sleeper, Director of donor services with Eastern Maine Healthcare Charities, says despite a slumping economy, folks have been happy to give.”They’ve really been better than last year. In the state of Maine, people are supporting their neighbors. We support everybody, even in times of need. And our children need care. And no child is ever turned away from any of our hospitals, and Children’s Miracle Network is here to help the children.”>Sleeper say she thinks they have tripled what they did in collections last year.And she says, anyone can be a Miracle Maker, pledging 10 dollars a month, or 30-cents a day, to help kids in need.Sleeper says last year, CMN helped over 147-thousand kids, from Waterville to Fort Kent.
