We have good news about March winner NPR, right after this quick update...
Update on the monthly pot size
The March pot was up from February's. One dollar. $1072 to $1073. It's moving in the right direction, and a perfect reminder that every dollar counts. "It's all about the Washingtons, baby."
I sound like a TV commercial for Save The Children or Save The Animals or something. "For less than the price of a cup of coffee..." But that's really what we're talking about: a small but regular contribution that pales in comparison to most coffee budgets, yet delivers way more. And there's also the network effect. The more donors, the bigger the pot, the more fun it is for all of us, and the bigger impact we have. (Scary thought: if you all donated coffee instead. Zzingg!)
See this blog post for ways you can help. Bottom line: convince a friend to join us!
March 2018 winner: NPR
Last night night we voted in our 7th cause of Charitocracy's 2nd year. Congratulations to NPR and to donor
Maurice for nominating it! You have 1 week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to NPR next week. You can find their web site here.
The NPR Mission
The mission of NPR is to work in partnership with Member Stations to create a more informed public — one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.
To accomplish our mission, we produce, acquire, and distribute programming that meets the highest standards of public service in journalism and cultural expression; we represent our members in matters of their mutual interest; and we provide satellite interconnection for the entire public radio system.
Check out this NPR Tiny Desk Concert, and feel good about your part in our collective $1073+ grant to help with their work!
Have a great April and log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
