Day 12 brings you the best gift of all, the one you give to your loved ones, your community, and yourself – the gift of public radio! Every time you support NHPR, you ensure that the award-winning news coverage, programming, and events that you have come to rely on day in and day out will keep coming your way. Your support at this time of year is especially essential, as we look to close out 2012 strong!
Plus, when we raise $50,000 today, we will receive an additional $12,000 from a group of dedicated listeners!
