My Country 99.3 joins forces with Country icon Jo Dee Messina, local teen for Christmas charity effort

GRIFFIN, Ga. -- My Country is thrilled to join forces with '90s and 2000's Country icon, Jo Dee Messina and Sasha Horton, a Georgia teenager, to bring Christmas joy to hundreds of underprivileged children locally and around the world.

Sasha Horton is a 15-year-old from Griffin, born in a Ukranian orphange before being adopted by her parents and relocating to Georgia. Sasha is a recipient of Samaritan's Purse and their popular "Operation Christmas Child" campaign, which packs shoeboxes and sends to children around the world who otherwise would not be able to experience Christmas.

Now, she wants to pay it back -- trying to collect hundreds of shoeboxes full of Christmas gifts and raising thousands to cover the shipping cost. Her story caught Jo Dee Messina's eye and ours, too, which is why we're proud to join forces with the "Heads Carolina, Tails California" singer to help get the word out about this incredibly worthy cause.

The deadline for collections is November 24th and you can hear more about how you can get involved this Friday morning at 7:45am when Jo Dee and Sasha join Joel Williams on My Country 99.3.
