I run the Public Service Announcements at an all-volunteer low-power FM radio station.

We run national/syndicated and locally-produced news & talk during the workday, and the
rest of the time our DJs program ALL their own music.  WRIR   :headbang:

Fans of the actor Tom Hiddleston (whose 32nd birthday it is today) have raised a fucking buttload of money for UNICEF. Good for them.

Aiming to raise $25,650 to help babies on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota (worst infant mortality rates in the US (300% higher than anywhere else in the country), highest levels of poverty with 97% of the population living below the poverty line.)

Only 10 days left on this one and pretty far short of its funding goal. Could really use a signal boost. Tweets, Facebook-likes, mentions, etc cost nothing. Please?

Very little time left to help the Lakota babies and mothers of Pine Ridge...

>>>>> http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/268593/x/994497 <<<<<

They accept Paypal and £-to-$ exchange rates currently means $5 = just £3.30ish. Just FYI. Every little helps.  :wave:
