Radio airtime - get higher with PEAKS!

PEAKS on the air with Ithaca Community Radio!

IthacaCommunityRadioI was thrilled to get a ring from Jim Murphy (pictured on left), who discovered PEAKS through one of our Changemakers, Sustainable Neighborhoods Nicaragua (SNN). Jim is a Changemaker in his own right, working enthusiastically to resurrect Ithaca Community Radio (88.1 FM), starting with his weekday morning show from 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. 

I arrived at the station this morning 
with a mug of tea and a nervous grin - the day was still pitch black. This was only my second time on the airand Ithaca Community Radio had given us the exciting opportunity to showcase just one of our local Changemakers. Today, Kai Keene (Team Leader at SNN) joined us to share SNN's recent success fundraising on PEAKS. In just eight days, forty-five students have Championed SNN, raising almost $4,500 to support their work with Nicaraguan communities to build sturdier, safer homes made with locally available materials. 

Stay tuned to Ithaca Community Radio at 88.1 FM! PEAKS just might start a regular Changemaker series!
