Some things are just natural matches for one another: peanut butter and chocolate, Simon and Garfunkel, Click and Clack.
And, as our membership drive draws near, I want to remind you of another match-up that has special importance: VPR and you.
We are asking you and fellow listeners to be matchmakers for VPR. We’re pooling your pre-drive contributions into a Member Match Fund. We'll use the fund to challenge other listeners to give during the upcoming membership drive. So far, listeners have pledged $55,000 to VPR’s Member Match Fund, and we're counting on you to help us reach our goal of $60,000 by midnight tonight!
The larger we can grow the VPR Member Match Fund, the shorter we can make our on-air fundraising! There are other benefits too: every dollar you give helps deliver the stories that matter most to you on VPR and NPR, you will be entered in all the drawings held during the drive, and…did I mention a shorter membership drive?
Please contribute online right now, before the drive begins. Thank you so much!
