Could You be a Four-Leaf Clover?

We’re biting our nails, crossing our fingers, and searching for a few four-leaf clovers.

Did you know that, as part of the community radio station CIUT 89.5 FM, Animal Voices must fulfill a minimum quota of new members during the bi-annual fund-raising drives? Each $25 donation qualifies as a membership, and membership renewal also counts toward meeting our quota.

Twice a year Animal Voices needs to prove that our audience wants to keep hearing innovative speakers, passionate activists, and inspiring international content. Simply put, without people like you, we won’t stay on the air. As a volunteer-run show, Animal Voices continues to be a labour of love.

To become a member, or to renew your membership, check out your donation options by clicking here, or go to www.ciut.fm to learn more about the CIUT prizes. Please indicate that your pledge is on behalf of Animal Voices. We thank you kindly! Also, please drop us a line (animalvoices@gmail.com) once you’ve donated so we can publicly thank you.

Your donations allow us to have continued access to CIUT’s resources, including a weekly hour segment, a strong broadcast signal, multiple phone lines, a budget for international calling, and some limited advertising funds to promote the program. We wouldn’t be able to provide the diversity of perspectives, nor our weekly programming, without access to CIUT’s infrastructure and support.

There are so few public forums for people to talk and exchange ideas about animals, especially controversial perspectives; community radio is one of the only places that animal issues become part of the public landscape. The mainstream media routinely distorts and diminishes the work of animal advocates; community radio is a platform where we can represent ourselves: not only to honour our histories and activism, but to also speak back to these distortions.

Tune in for highlights of the past six months. Thanks for your ongoing support!
