It's important to me. I hope it is to you too.

When mainstream media reports what it wants to and law enforcement and gov’t find ways to block us from seeing what’s really going on, in this age we pull out our camera phones and take to the internet to get our social media networks charged with millions of characters, images, video and audio clips to connect with one another and reveal the truth we’re being denied. What about radio?

In January of 2013 we launched a radio station to give real people like you a voice globally. Diverse programming to educate, entertain and empower the listener. An example of what people can build if they have a dream and ignore all the naysayers, believe and just follow it. The impact thus far has been tremendous from Australia to the Ukraine we’re inspiring people online. And offline we’ve been hands on in the community serving meals, tending garden and speaking to the youth and interacting with real people.

I never thought that deciding to take over an open mic in 2008, the movement of Bondfire would grow as it has. Years of connections have brought a number of friends and close associates of mine under one roof to affect change in this reality we share.

We’re in our last week of fundraising for a new studio and community workspace to broadcast from. The space we currently broadcast from is on the market. We can not continue to grow and broadcast without a place to do it from.

Throughout this campaign I’ve been asking for contributions and it’s never been solely about the money (everyone doesn’t have it), of course we need it but what we definitely need just as much is true support by way of the co-sign, the testimony, the sharing of awareness about our movement to those that matter. Friends and family. The artists and entrepreneurs. I can honestly say Bondfire has been shaping and changing lives for over a half decade. It’s a big deal. It’s one answer to every complaint of how bad radio is. It’s an accessible entity. We’re in the community not shut off and hiding.

In close to fifteen years of community building and creating spaces for people with voices to express and grow, I’ve never wasted my energy with endeavors I felt were not worth it. I’ve fought with it. Sometimes you lose yourself in your work but I’ve never been upset with the results of how doing what I do has affected so many in a profound way.

I’m asking you to help build #thefutureofradio. Be a part of something real. Not later but now.This is for us.
