At the top of the show, Megan mentioned donating to the American Heart Association for free advertising.  Here is the link – Anyone can donate of course, and it’s to a great cause, in honor of Megan’s dad William “Brew” Brewer, who passed away on July 4, 2006 after complications from a massive heart attack. But if you’re a business, and you’d like to advertise, there’s a bonus for you. If you donate $100 or more to the American Heart Association through the tribute page, you can get a free ad read at the top of one of the next three shows (July 11th, 18th, or 25th).  If you contribute $50 or more, you can get a free ad read in the middle of the show or at the end. For more details about this, or to coordinate scheduling the ad read, email us at  Thank you!
