Please support the show
If you enjoy listening to Nash Holos, and accessing it online if you can’t listen to the live broadcasts, then I hope you will support it with a donation through our Patreon site.
Asking for money is icky and gross. It’s definitely not something I like to do, so I haven’t done it a lot. But, unfortunately, it’s a necessity to run this show.
Serving the Ukrainian community since 1990 …
Nash Holos has been a community service volunteer operation for almost 30 years. We are not now nor have ever been funded by government and have no big business backing. That makes it tough to cover the out-of-pocket expenses required to bring you Nash Holos week in and week out, and provide it as a podcast online.
So if you enjoy the show and/or appreciate our efforts to promote Ukrainian culture, please consider some of the following options to support the show in return. As little as a dollar a month will help cover some of those costs, and would be very much appreciated.
No-cost support option
You can actually support the Nash Holos at zero cost to you whenever you shop on Amazon or iTunes. Just click on any affiliate link you see posted here on the website, and make your purchase. There will be no extra charge to you, but Amazon and Apple will kick in a few cents to Nash Holos. So it’s a cost-free way for you to support the show, just by shopping for yourself!
Nash Holos Gift Boutique
Get Nash Holos merchandise at our new Cafe Press store. There are mugs, caps, t-shirts, hoodies. mouse pads, tote bags, etc. that would make a great gift for the hard-to-buy-for Nash Holos listener in your life. Or for yourself!
Advertise or sponsor a feature on the show
If your business, professional service, or non-profit would like to reach Nash Holos listeners with your message, contact us to find out about advertising and sponsorship opportunities. As well you can help promote your favourite Ukrainian charity (like a church) or a non-profit cultural group that can’t afford to advertise. To find out how, reach out to us on the contact page and we’ll get right back to you.
Nash Holos now has a Patreon page where you can make a monthly pledge starting at $1. There will be additional content there very soon as well as “rewards” for Patrons (i.e., paying donors). These include weekly playlists (with proverb) for each edition of the show, e-books (e.g. recipes, proverb collections, etc.), swag & merch, etc. There is currently a Book of Ukrainian Proverbs as a thank-you for patrons who contribute $5 a month or more. I’m in the process of creating 2019 calendars and a few other goodies for donors of $5 or more per month. (That’s just a wee bit over $1 a week.)
The Patreon site results will actually determine the future of Nash Holos—how much longer we will remain on the air and online. It will also affect the quality of the programming going forward. Your money will be put to good use to cover expenses such as website and podcast hosting, software and hardware upgrades, hired help, travel costs, office expenses, and all that tedious stuff that keeping a show like this on the air and online requires. (Plus, then I can remove the awful Google ads on the website and the blog.)
So please check out the various options and do consider supporting our efforts, even for just $1 a month. Or at the very least, follow us on Patreon, as well as on Facebook and Twitter (if you don’t already).
I really do love to hear from listeners. Your comments are really and truly welcome. So please send me an email, comment on the blog, or reach out on the Nash Holos Facebook or Twitter page. We’re in this together!
