Just a quick word to let you all know that WGDR, Goddard College Community Radio, met its fall pledge drive goal of $12,500 last night at 10pm. We’d like to thank all of our listeners and supporters for their gifts– whether monetary, product, or that of their valuable energy and time– in support of finishing another successful pledge drive.
Pledge drive is a unique event. It involves tremendous amounts of community collaborations to produce, and is carried out over eight long days. Though the levels of fatigue arrived at are occasionally dizzying, I’ve come to look forward to them like a holiday, where extended family come together, after maybe not seeing each other for a while– celebrate in, and out of the house– and remember what it means to cherish the sharing of a name; in this case, WGDR.
From all of us at WGDR/WGDH, thanks for helping us keep the candles lit, and the signals clear.
– Kris Gruen, Director, WGDR/WGDH, Goddard College Community Radio
