NPR pledge gifts getting worse

Was listening
to the local SF NPR station this morning as my alarm clock was waking me up.    In these
recessionary times, does it seem like the pledge gifts are getting worse?

 

In the old days
they would throw in a toaster or a pedometer or even a cheap GPS.  

 

Now you’re
lucky to get a podcast as a gift?

 

What’s
next?   You give them stuff???   I suggest the Tom Sawyer approach:

 

“for your
$30 contribution, we’ll let you babysit our kids”

 

“for your $12/month
support, you can fix our 1982 Chevy that keeps breaking down”

 

“for sustaining
us for $100, we’ll let you shine Greg Sherwood’s shoes”
