Once upon a time there was a treasure trove of incredible audio stories locked away inside a lovely but creaky website.

2014 / listeners and makers like you / TCIAF, USA

Once upon a time there was a treasure trove of incredible audio stories locked away inside a lovely but creaky website.

Then the Manaaki Foundation came to Third Coast with an amazing challenge: "If you raise money to reimagine this website, we'll match every dollar of every gift, up to $20,000."

This was/is a big deal - and where you come into the story.

Your donation by June 30 helps us unlock thirdcoastfestival.org so that it's faster, spiffier, uber-mobile and has an audio player that works!

While we don't know the story's ending, we hope it goes a lot like this: fans across the globe pitched in what they could, Third Coast met the Manaaki Challenge and was in better shape than ever to support the community of listeners and makers worldwide.

Coda: the sooner you donate, the better chance you have to win ear candy - fancy Shure earbuds, a Tivoli radio, gratis registration to this year's Conference, VIP tickets to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, the finest Pidgey-themed swag, and more....

Epilogue: Don't forget to press play above - we made you a little sonic sonic treat.

Acknowledgements: We can't thank you enough. Doubled!
