Critical relief efforts are still going on in Florida, Texas, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and elsewhere to recover from September’s series of hurricanes and earthquakes — and this week there’s a way for you to support those efforts just by listening to music !

From October 3rd through 9th, AccuRadio is donating 100% of its profits to a variety of hurricane and earthquake relief charities.

Listening by you and your colleagues will raise additional money for relief efforts because the more listeners AccuRadio has, the more ad revenues it will generate, and thus the more it will be able to donate.

So enjoy the music while you help a very worthy cause!
