TCN Fund Drive
May and November are the two months each year when I hold a fund-raiser for the TCN.  Now that November has arrived it's time for the second one this year.

If you'd like to donate to help support the TCN please see how you can contribute below.  As I've said in the past, there are several ways you can support the TCN.  In addition to monetary gifts, you can advertise in the TCN, hire me for voice services you need, or simply share the TCN with others and encourage them to subscribe.  Thank you for your support!
