Fund Raiser Coming Up for The Jewelry Connection

Dear Friends of The Jewelry Connection,
The Jewelry Connection program has enjoyed a bit more than a year of free broadcasting at Now Live, home site for the show. I'm grateful for that time and after reviewing a number of similar sites, this site offers the best support for the type of program I'm producing.
Last Thursday Now Live made some changes. Programs that want to continue broadcasting with LIVE video must now pay for the bandwidth to produce shows. The fee they are asking is two hundred dollars per month. That sounds like a lot doesn't it!
It isn't actually much at all if you all are willing to help support the show with a very small contribution. The last show where numbers of visitors was recorded was almost nine thousand live listeners. If each of those listeners donated only one dollar to support the show, we would be able to enjoy live streaming video for almost 4 years, so this is a goal that is easily attainable!
Sunday March 8th, 2009 I'll be hosting a fund raising program at The Jewelry Connection with my Co-host Dr. Gail Devoid.
I am able to continue broadcasting live audio, but no live video is available at the site at this time. It is still possible to call into the show, enjoy interviews, look at pictures, and watch videos in the broadcast room, but with no live video, the show is operating with a bit of a handicap if we want to host live tutorials and enjoy guest artist by web cam. Also, I am unable to show pictures of artist's work through the remote streaming video pod casters which is a huge handicap.
I know that this is a tough time in the economy to be trying to raise funds, but the support I'm asking for is very minimal.
Guest Artists, teachers, jewelry students, and I would all be very grateful for your contribution to support a program that I work very hard to make sure is worthy of your attention! Please join us during our program on Sunday afternoon and consider donating a small contribution in order to return the status of the show to include streaming video!
Date: March 8th, 2009
Show Time: 12pm PST, 2pm CST, 3pm EST
Show Time in Europe: 9pm and in the UK 8pm

Slide the Open Audio bar to the far left upon entering the broadcast room. Hit F5 on your keyboard to reset the broadcast room if videos won't load from the media files. F5 usually fixes anything that isn't functioning properly for you! Click on the media tab at top left in the broadcast room to open a double panel of videos and pictures that are already viewable there!
Looking forward to meeting with you on Sunday, March 8th!
