November TCN Fund-Raising Drive
Twice a year, I hold a month-long fund-raising effort to support the TCN. Near the bottom of the newsletter you'll find information on how you can contribute. In addition to monetary gifts, there are other ways you can support the TCN. These include buying ad space in the TCN, utilizing my transportation voiceover services or simply letting others in the field know about the TCN so they too can subscribe. Throughout November I'll provide more details on how you can support the TCN. Thank you!
