Giving Tuesday

Today is giving Tuesday, an opportunity following all the shopping of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to turn our attentions from buying to giving.

If you like what we’re doing at Harvard Community Radio, please help us keep doing it. We appreciate all levels of financial support, but we are also thankful for your time. If you would like to get involved, let us know!

Thank you!
