Happy Amplifiers Love Week! Your sustained monthly giving helps KEXP fulfill its mission and play more music, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Amplifiers also boost KEXP’s financial security, which allows us to spend less time fundraising on-air – that’s how we condense the Summer Drive and Hood-to-Hood Challenge into a single day. We’d much rather spend that week showering you with praise and affection over the air, online, and all around Seattle.
Below are all the ways we’re saying “thank you!” during Amplifiers Love Week, and we hope you’ll take advantage of these fun activities. If you have questions, or just want to reach out, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-520-5843.
