Big thanks to everyone who donated to KXLL during the 2013 Spring Pledge Drive. We raised $9,500 with money still rolling in. That total included 100 individual donors and almost 50 sustaining members! We couldn’t do it without you, Juneau.
Pint glasses and coffee are in, so stop by the station to pick them up. If you got a t-shirt or sweatshirt they’re still being custom made at Aurora Projekt, so stay tuned. Hats are also on the way.
If you missed out on the action, there’s still time to donate here and claim some of our cool prizes.
Keep fighting the good fight!
