Three Cheers for Three Sponsors!

Amy MartinComment

The 90+ people who donated to Learning Their Place last fall were the first crucial sponsors who got this project up and running. Because of them, we were able to complete two recording missions (Seattle, Bay area), make prototype episodes, start applying for grants, develop a sponsorship plan and create the First Official Episodes. Now, a few weeks before those episodes are released, we're delighted to introduce you to the first three businesses/organizational sponsors of Learning Their Place. In the order in which they signed on, they are:

(drum roll please...)

Produced in Whitefish, Montana, Hurraw! is a lip balm made from "honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers."

It's really good stuff! And I'm not just saying that because they're sponsoring the podcast -- I fell in love with the balm and then asked them to sponsor, not the other way around.

I really do love their lip balm. And now I really do love them as a company, too. Go get yourself some all natural, vegan Hurraw! lip balm, folks! (Reading this from Jordan? Finland? Australia? No problem -- they ship all over the world.)

Hurrah for Hurraw!
