If you visited our studio this week, you’d see our staff in full “Fundraiser Mode”. Even though our Fall Share event doesn’t start till the 26th, there are so many details to care for as we get ready. Phones and computers have to be set up in our conference room for our phone volunteers, decisions are being made about which songs to play, and we’re getting the studios ready with extra equipment and signage.
Another element of preparation involves choosing the listener stories we’re planning to share during the event. We receive countless comments and stories from our listeners about the impact your gifts are making in their lives, through Life 101.9. We want to choose the most compelling stories to share with you during our Fall Share. We have two goals in minds as we do this. First, if you are a current donor, we want to give you a report on what your past gifts have accomplished. Second, if you’re not currently giving, we want you to see how a generous gift from you can help to change lives.
Here’s a preview of one of the stories you’ll hear on the air. A young woman wrote: “Life 101.9 has been my go-to for so many years. My relationship with Jesus actually really began at the age of 12 when I first went into foster care. The only way I made it through all those years was because I was introduced to this station. Thank you for being so uplifting and giving hope to those without!”
Your gifts allowed Life 101.9 to remind a young girl about God’s unconditional love for her, in the middle of stuff she had no control over. Hope is a powerful thing, and thanks to you, she was able to get through these tumultuous years with hope and faith.
So all of our busy-ness here at the station this month has a purpose…to encourage you to stand with us financially. Be the person who helps the next young person navigate the foster care system with your compassionate gift today. Click here to give right now. And join us for the Life 101.9 Fall Share starting September 26th!
