I've just spent some quality time updating the International Village website to make it easier to view on phones and other mobile devices, which reminded me ...
International Village is less than a month away!
We are once again producing a video webcast of International Village, and this time, for the first year, your donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. (P.S.: Webcasts from previous years are still online.)
Thanks to the generosity of one of our board members, we have new video cameras (formerly used by one of Pittsburgh's tee-vee stations), which should give us a better picture than in previous years. We also have a new 4G LTE wireless connection, which should enable a more solid connection to the Internet.
But it all costs money. We would like to raise at least $750 to defray our expenses ... including our hosting, along with Skymagik Internet Services, of the International Village website --- which we do at no cost to city taxpayers.
If you're at all able to make a tax-deductible donation, we would very much appreciate it. PayPal will instantly email you a receipt, and we will send you an acknowledgement by U.S. Mail at the end of this year.
If your business or organization would like to advertise during our International Village webcast, we need your information right away! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 614-9659.
For $100, we will make a minimum of one 30-second announcement for your group, business or organization every hour, plus we will run a banner ad on Tube City Online for at least 30 days.
For $250, we will make a minimum of one 60-second announcement for your group, business or organization every hour, plus we will run a banner ad on Tube City Online for at least 60 days. (Advertising does not qualify as a charitable contribution.)
