HELP IS NEEDED
Please! Help us at RFPI!!!
We are always looking for new members to help spread our message and to
support our work and you can help us. Recruit a friend to become a new
member and introduce them into the RFPI family!
We are also sending out a plea for financial assistance. At the moment we
are still trying to get back on to high speed Internet so we can transmit
once again via the Internet and reach more listeners worldwide!!! We are
also in need of extra funding for transmitter repairs, as we have been
experiencing problems in the past few weeks. Without our transmitters,
we can't reach the people who mean the most to us - our listeners - so
if you can help us in any way, we would really appreciate it!
