WSIU Hosts 17th Annual Love is On the Air Fundraiser


Now in its 17th year, this popular event has become a Valentine's Day tradition among public media fans across the region. WSIU supporters who make a donation during “Love is On the Air” can send boxes of regular or sugar-free gourmet chocolates made by The Chocolate Factory in Golconda, Illinois anywhere in the continental U.S., courtesy of Mail Boxes Etc. of Carbondale.

A new gift this year is the Comfort Heart Pillow™, the sweet little Heart that comforts, fromMother Earth Pillows™ of Arnold, Mo. The pillows, which are handcrafted using natural golden flax and fabrics, can be used - hot or cold - to ease pain, tension, and discomfort.

Chocolates are available in half-pound boxes for a donation of $45, one-pound boxes for a donation of $60, and two-pound boxes for a donation of $100. The Comfort Heart Pillow™ and a one-pound box of chocolates are available for a $120 donation. Each box includes a gift card with the sender's personalized Valentine message.

Secure pledges can be made online at or by calling 1-800-745-9748. Orders must be received by 1pm on Monday, February 11 for delivery on or before Valentine's Day.
