KMUN: Looking Forward, Giving Back on Giving Tuesday
November 5, 2020
Giving Tuesday(GT) is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform communities and the world. Created in 2012 as a simple idea: GT is a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. KMUN has participated in GT since 2014. In this pivotal year, they are doing good by giving back to local non-profits.
Janet Fryberger, KMUN Membership Director explains KMUN's “do good” plan for this year. “In addition to entertaining our community of listeners, we strive to educate as well. We're opting to highlight local non-profits through brief air spots at the top of each hour, throughout the week leading up to GT and on GT itself.” Fryberger states, “We're calling it - KMUN: Looking Forward, Giving Back. We hope listeners will take this opportunity to learn about and support many local non-profits.” This is a broadening of KMUN's Promos for Non-profits program launched in January 2020 which airs an informative segment about a local nonprofit at 5:48 p.m., weekdays, during All Things Considered.
KMUN will continue it's focus on the many nonprofits that do their good work in their listening area. “KMUN hopes you appreciate our actions and choose to support our efforts as well, through Facebook and we always encourage donations through our website coastradio.org,” said Fryberger.
KMUN is a member-supported, volunteer-operated radio station, serving a diverse listening audience along the North Oregon and SW Washington coasts, from Raymond, Washington to Pacific City, Oregon. They strive to provide locally relevant programming, news and emergency information on three stations KMUN, KTCB and KCPB.
