WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.

Between the three of us, it takes about 60 hours of hard work to produce a month of content for Maternally Yours. We are volunteers--paid by spiritual fulfillment and not by U.S. currency. However we do ask that you support our station, because without their building, electricity, station manager, tower, signal, soundboard, microphones, computers, equipment, and LPFM license--we would not be here. Those things all take money to maintain, and unlike NPR stations, we don't get a penny from the government, it is 100% from YOU.

Tonight, we'll volunteer our research, production, content, conversation, guests and voices for the 160th time. We are asking you to give us a sign that you appreciate the conversation and the change it is bringing, and hope to hear it for months and years to come. Please call us tonight between 6 and 7 at (941) 894-6469, or go online (it's not too early) at www.wslr.org and be sure to write that you support Maternally Yours in the notes.

Community Radio allows us to connect YOU with the people and resources you need to make informed decisions throughout your childbearing years.

WHAT A GIFT.

Now it's your turn!

You can make your pledge now any time at www.wslr.org.

After you've supported us, SHARE your good deed on facebook and twitter so people know that you support independent media, informed consumerism and evidence-based maternity care.

You all keep us going, it's as simple as that. THANK YOU.

Gratefully and Maternally Yours,
Ryan, Laura and Dana
