JP Marat - WCRS Go Fund Me - Avatar II

Today we present the Sound Track from "Avatar II - The Way of Water" which was just released at the end of December along with the film. We ask for your assistance with our GoFundMe.com campaign to help raise $10,000 to move our 98.3 Tower/Transmitter and stay on the air. Donations of all amounts are gladly accepted. Overwhelmingly most work at WCRS LP FM is voluntary. However at times we need to raise funds for Engineering, Infrastructure and Installation costs. Please help us keep WCRS on the AIR. Go to GoFundMe.com and search for WCRS. Your generosity is very much appreciated.
