TCN Fundraiser – Other Ways to Support           

For the most part I've asked for monetary contributions to support the TCN, but there are other ways you can help keep the newsletter going. For example, I do voiceover work. I'm heard daily by hundreds of thousands on the NYC subway, the AirTrain at JFK and Newark airports and on PATCO trains running between Philadelphia and South Jersey. You can hear some of my video narrations by visiting this Pinterest page. When you call PATH at 1-800-234-PATH, my voice will greet you and tell you all you need to know.

If you need a voice for a video, transit system or phone recording, please let me know. For information on how to make a contribution by check or credit card, please look below. Thank you!
