TCN November Fundraiser

I had a great reaction to last week's notice in which I offered a couple of valuable gifts in return for donations to the TCN.  In case you missed it, for a $50 gift I'll provide a professional recording of up to 60-seconds.  You can have the same voice that informs thousands daily on the NYC subways and the AirTrain on your phone greeting or anywhere else you'd like to use it.  For a contribution of $100, you get an ad in the TCN.  Of course, you can also just make a contribution of any amount.  Please look below for information on how to contribute.  Thank you!
