Today is Web Wednesday, where we'll try to raise as much money as we can before the on-air part of our membership drive begins tomorrow.
So without any further ado, if your membership is up, or if you've never given to VPR before, I hope you'll make Web Wednesday a success by pledging online today.
We've been experimenting with these web days before pledge drives for a couple of years now. Why? To start, giving online is easy, fast, and secure - and it saves VPR resources. But it's also a way to get a head start on the membership drive. All those Web Wednesday spots you've been hearing on the air don't interrupt regular programming like an on-air drive does. So, the more we raise today, the shorter the on-air drive will be, and the more programming you'll hear. And that's something we all enjoy!
Now if that's not reason enough to pledge today, perhaps we can entice you to participate in Web Wednesday with a special drawing. When you pledge today you'll be entered to win a $1,000 gift certificate to Northshire Bookstore to use in their Manchester store or online. You'll also be entered into ALL of the prize drawings for the rest of this membership drive - you can check them out online here.
As always, it's not the amount of your pledge - it's the fact you pledge. Thank you so very much for your support.
