This may or may not include other podcasts and podcasters featured on The Now Playing Network at some point in the future.  For now, this currently pertains to my interview show, Voices & Visions in addition to my musical project, Garden On A Trampoline.  The only way I'll truly feel okay with asking for some financial support is by pledging the majority of donations to any (or all) of the five organizations which I currently feel strongly about.  Once I receive enough to cover my $30 monthly fee for both the podcast and the website, I will be contributing the rest of the donations to any or all of the non-for-profits below.  I will provide a receipt of the donation for tax purposes if requested.

I will donate a portion of my proceedings to one of the following: The Alzheimer's Association based out of Chicago, IL.  My grandmother suffered with the illness and I want to make a difference in providing some monthly support to their research team. In addition, due to our President's ignorance and utter stupidity regarding his recent decision to back out of the Paris Climate Agreement, I would like to also offer any donations received to one of the four non-for-profits as of June 2017: 

The Pew Charitable Trusts

The Environmental Defense Fund

The Trust For Public Land

The Nature Conservancy

Yes I need a little monthly income as a result of the time and effort I put into my podcast and NPN, but I'm truly doing this for a good cause and hope that you'll want to help contribute what you can each and every month.  As a music teacher, I'm currently not setting the world on fire financially plus I have student loans to pay off, so I realized that in order for me to keep going with interviews, web design and upkeep, and social media, I have to ask for some assistance -- and rest assured, that anything after $30 per month is going straight to help organizations that could use the help even more than me during these tumultuous times (including recent and expensive car repairs).  Spread the word, tell your friends and family, and let's make a difference while also supporting the network as well as my music & podcasting endeavors <3
