I love to shop just-because but there’s nothing better than shopping for a cause! And today, you can support PBS just by shopping at Amazon.
I recently joined the board of my local public broadcasting station. WNIT is my local PBS station and they do a lot with limited resources. And they could use your help.
Public broadcasting is an important system of independently owned and operated local public radio and television stations. They air a combination of commercial-free original programming and some programming licensed from other stations.
As a parent I love PBS’ programming on local issues, children’s education, the arts, and public affairs. When I lived in Boston, WGBH was an important part of my parenting: together Bobby and I watched educational programming and visited museums to augment what we learned through it’s educational programming.
I have found Public broadcasting to be a vital teaching tool (what parent doesn’t appreciate high quality educational programming for their children?) and a trusted voice to tell community stories that might otherwise go untold.
I’m also a big fan of their dramatic programming. Many friends loved Downton Abbey, a show which was critically acclaimed and won received countless nominations and awards.
I am currently loving Victoria, a new miniseries charting the young queen’s early days on the throne.
But, public television doesn’t accept commercials, and its programming needs your help. Your local community station offers many ways for you to get involved–and today, WNIT offers you an easy one: you can shop Amazon for to support WNIT.
