WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GROW AND PROGRESS
We need your support and donation
Message from PAUL-IN-RIO (aka Laurent Cappoen) founder of ILOVE.RIO and president of the organization OBA! CULTURA:
ILOVE.RIO is a unique and exciting media dedicated 100% to brazilian and “carioca” music and culture. The web radios and the digital TV channel ILOVE.RIO bring together hundreds of thousands of Brazil lovers every month. Our web radios are accessible all over the world and are known to be followed by brazilian music lovers all over the world.
There is nothing monstrous about business and advertising is not an evil in itself. But neither of them really have a place in our media and on our airwaves. It is unnatural and above all it is not adapted to today’s and tomorrow’s listeners. So we don’t want it on ILOVE.RIO and its media. ILOVE.RIO is a special space on the web. Like an ideal brazilian discotheque, it is a refuge for the brain and the ears. It is a wonderful place where every Brazil lover can close his eyes and dream. “O pais de todos”, the country of all, the country of the future invites us to escape.
By founding first our 3 web radios, then our digital TV channel, I could have created a commercial enterprise and sell advertising space and seek audience at any cost, but I decided to do something different. I have worked hard over the years to preserve the soul, the spirit, the pure juice 100% vitamins so that our media is efficient and economical. Today, we are still fulfilling our mission. If every person listening or reading this message would give us something, our fundraising would be completed in a few days!
Think of all we can accomplish together.
If you wish, you can help I LOVE RIO go further by joining us in contributing and donating to our organization OBA! CULTURA. Choose an amount that fits your means. There is no difference between a small or large financial contribution. It’s just you and us to share and promote – together – our passion for Brazilian music and culture.
Your support allows us to finance our free and independent media gathered on ILOVE.RIO. Your donations allow us to finance:
1. our technical means, our production tools and as far as possible our dedicated staff,
and if we can hope for more:
2. productions of brazilian artists and productions of documentary films and reports dedicated to brazilian music and culture.
3. the development of concerts and tours of brazilian artists and even, if we can dream: a festival of brazilian talents.
4. the development of our media and content on the web and OTT media.
We will evolve in the coming months to bring you the best of the art of “joie de vivre” and brazilian culture. This year, please consider making a donation of $6 or $12 or $24 or $48 or even $120 yearly or one time, in order to protect and preserve ILOVE.RIO, our web radios and our digital TV channel.
Thank you in advance!
