For my birthday on Nov. 15, there's a five-year-old who needs your help.
Since it was born in 2009, NOWCastSA.com has opened the room for thousands of people to engage with San Antonio's cultural, civic, health and educational events, from high school graduations to Luminaria, chess matches and World AIDS Day.
NOWCastSA has been streaming an average of four hours a week of local content from scores of places across San Antonio and South Texas. That's eight times as much local news as is aired by the local PBS station.
But all of this history could be lost.
Our friends at Rack Gives Back recently told us they are discontinuing the in-kind grant program that has allowed NOWCastSA.com to live rent-free on the Rackspace Cloud. That means our website will be homeless, effective November 30.
We're still researching our options, but know we will need at least $3,000 to move NOWCastSA.com and all of its stories, videos and archives to a new server and to pay unexpected hosting costs through the end of 2014.
That's where you can come to the rescue! Your gift of any amount will help keep our website, NOWCastSA.com alive ~
You can donate with a credit card right here on this page. You can also make a gift via cash or check at our office on the 6th floor of Central Library, or mailed to NOWCastSA, 600 Soledad, 6th Floor, San Antonio, TX 78205.
