Humbly asking for some help

Hello to all faithful Moonsters.

For those who may not have heard, my job has been eliminated due to the slowdown in business caused by the covid-19 related shutdown. I am quite concerned about my ability to find a new job, due to my age, and the challenge in onboarding a new hire in these times.

There is not an emergency currently, but I am preparing, and trying to cut expenses. As important as Aural Moon is to me, I cannot subsidize it forever without a job. Coincidentally, before the extent of the virus was known, I reached out to former patrons who hadn't donated in over a year, and there was a surge in donations. So for January through April, I have spent only a small amount on keeping the station alive. I do expect donations to taper off, so I am asking anyone who is so inclined to make a donation - I hate to remind long time supporters, or people I consider friends, but if you're due, and can manage it (I do NOT think I am the only one affected), please consider contributing. If you hang out here a lot, and don't donate for whatever reason (I will never ask), please consider a small donation if you can.

I am not about to go hungry, nor even fall behind on my mortgage. But I did just have a couple of significant and unexpected expenses, and I am feeling more angst about my finances than I have since it became apparent my wine importing business wasn't going to pay the bills almost 10 years ago.

Thank you for your consideration. I would take further steps (publicly) before I just ceased paying the streaming bill, so there is not meant to be any pressure here - just an appeal.

And thank you so much for being here - when I first replied to Avian's post looking for a Program Director, on the (very different) web page in 2000, I had no idea how many special people I would cross paths with as a result. Aural Moon means and has meant more to me than most people, even some of my closest friends, can possibly imagine.
