CFRC Funding Drive!
It is time to open your wallet and give to support Campus and Community Radio. Today is the start of CFRC 101.9 FM‘s (CFRC’s site is down at the moment after the AMS’ servers, which host it, imploded. A temporary site has been set up here) 4th Annual Funding Drive.
Giving is easy easy easy. You can pledge by phone by calling 613-533-2372 and talking to the kind operators who are standing by or you can donate online. Any little bit helps and if you pledge by phone (or in person at Lower Carruthers Hall on Queen’s campus) you can get yourself a sweet gift from one of the many awesome sponsors, such as my personal favourite Novel Idea, or if you donate online or by phone you can get a tax receipt. So please donate what you can. Every little bit helps.
To make parting with your money even more enjoyable, there are a bunch of spectacular Funding Drive events which the CFRC Facebook page tells me include:
Kingston Symphony Orchestra presents “Virtuoso Variations”
Sat. Jan 31, 7:30pm and Sun. Feb. 1, 2:30pm at The Grand Theatre

You get to see a kick ass show and help keep CFRC alive and kicking – it is win-win!
I posted this for the 2007 Funding Drive but I think it is worth reposting. Jill loves CFRC and you should too.
