I know it must seem silly to read and hear us saying over and over how amazed, how humbled and how grateful we all are for our outstanding supporters. But really, WE ARE! Once again, all of you who stepped up and supported this wonderful format just leave us in awe!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to each of you who made a pledge! Thank you Challengers for your generous help to match those pledges! Thank you volunteers for your hard work! Thank you Abhinn and Gavin for taking phone shifts! Thank you food donors Heavenly Ham and Embassy Suites, and Jennifer, for sustaining us! Thank you BCCC IT department for the generous loan of the volunteer laptops! Thank you to anyone my drive-addled brain is forgetting!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be getting everything straight in the database and be getting the Bill Me pledges out in the mail. If you were one of those who wanted us to save an envelope (there’s a bit of a shortage on those right now) please either mail your checks in right away to WBJC-FM, PO Box 22342, Baltimore MD 21203-4342 or go ahead and use the Blue Donate button and we’ll match up your pledge. Otherwise, we’ll send you the return envelope next week!

We are still experiencing a delay in the pocket journals due to the paper shortage.

The vendor decided to hold shipping for those who had selected multiple premiums so they could save on shipping. We've told them to go ahead and send the premiums they do have!

Thank you for your patience!
