KCRW Pledge Drive Feeding Families in Need
For those not living in LA area you might be unaware that KCRW is an LA institution.
KCRW is Southern California's leading National Public Radio affiliate, featuring an eclectic mix of music, news, information and cultural programming. The station boasts one of the nation's largest arrays of locally produced, nationally distributed talk program content. Now like most NPR stations twice a year KCRW does a pledge drive, a pledge drive where if you donate you can get station premiums like mugs, t-shirts, and Grizzly Bear CDs (KCRW has been called the most influential music station in America).
But another option that makes KCRW the coolest is that another station premium is that you can help families in need by providing 40 meals with LA Regional Food Bank for a donation of $10 a month or more. Last pledge they were able to give 80,000 meals to those in need and during their summer pledge drive this time around they're hoping to hit a target number of 150,000.
Pretty freaking cool, and they play awesome music too (like Grizzly Bear)!
PS So donate, duh!
