PBS Needs Your Support
June 12, 2007
The Public Broadcasting Station needs viewer support to maintain the kind of irreverent programming you've come to expect from our network. That's why we're asking for your donations today.
As a sign of our gratitude, we'd like to offer you a gift for your generous contributions: When you support our station at the 50-dollar level, you'll receive a collectible
tote bag. It's made from 100-percent organic cotton, and is emblazoned with our network's logo.
When you join at the 100-dollar level, we'll send you an additional collectible tote. That's two collectible totes for the price of one multiplied by two. Share your second tote with a fellow lover of public television and tote bags, or keep it in the event of any unforeseen tote-related tragedies that might befall your original tote bag.
When you join
at the 500-dollar level, you'll receive 30 collectible
totes. That's a tote for each day of the month. Yes, an entire month of fresh totes. Unless that month is January, March, May, July, August, October, or December. So during the majority of months you will be forced to use one tote twice. During February, however, you will have two more totes than you need. So actually, if you were to take those two unused totes and save them for two of the longer months, you would, in fact, be able to use a fresh tote for every day of the majority of months after all.
And when you join the
family at the 750-dollar level, you'll receive a copy of our 5-

This in-depth documentary explores the origin of the tote in American history, beginning with 19th-century explorer Josiah Tote, and traces the bag's significance in our culture—featuring interviews with legendary folk musicians James "Tote" Taylor, Patsy "The First Lady of Tote" Cline, and "Totin'" Tom Petty.
We now return you to the Masterpiece Theater presentation of

We like you. Do you like us too?
