'Tis the season to be giving

The CBAA has signed on for #GivingTuesday, a global movement to encourage, recognise and celebrate the act of giving between people and by philanthropic and non-profit organisations.

Our community broadcasting sector, numbering about 20,000-plus volunteers, gives time and skills every day of the year, and on behalf of your 5.2 million weekly listeners, we thank you.

Community broadcasting gives all Australians free and open access to a more diverse range of news, views, information and entertainment than that of other media.

Our sector also gives communities locally produced and relevant content and allows people to participate in creating and chronicling culture, whether that culture is based on interest in and appreciation of music, language, social issues, ability, faith, or gender identity.

Jump over to givingtuesday.org.au and share what your community station gives people.
