WYES fundraising drive

WYES is having its live telethon right now. I called in and gave; I wouldn't have felt compelled to but the dude reminded me of some programming we take advantage of every morning: the unparalleled children's educational shows offered through partnership with PBS. Sid the Science Kid in the hooouuuse!

If you like what they offer, why not call in and donate as well? Apparently the budget has been severely cut so they're trying to make up a $360,000 shortfall. As of the first ten minutes, only eight donors had ponied up. :(

486-7311 / 1-800-486-7311.

You can also donate online at wyes.org.

If you donate $175 you get two tickets to Trans-Siberian Orchestra, December 17th.
