In 2013, the company launched “What’s Happening Birmingham” App on iPhone, iPad and Android. In 2018, the company started the What's Happening Birmingham Video Podcast. This daily video series, hosted by Jarvis Escott, interviews local news makers in business, entertainment, non profits and government. Our business has been tremendously affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our company relies 100% off our advertisers. Our advertisers' events have been cancelled and client businesses temporarily closed due to local, state and public health department orders.  Our company's mission and goal through our podcast the next few months is to tell the story of how local businesses, non profits and individuals are coping with this pandemic in our city. We are seeking your financial support to continue not only this podcast but our business itself.   Any donation small or large, is accepted and appreciated! However we are asking for $10 or more from 1,000 of our most loyal followers and supporters to meet this goal! We also understand that these times are hard and some are unable to give at this time. For those who cannot give at this time, please share this page to those who can. Thank you all for your continued support! 

P.S.  I have applied for several loans but have not heard back from any of them on if I have been approved.  If you are individual or business who are interested in sponsoring or advertising on the next What's Happening Birmingham Video Podcast, please call 205-538-4508 or email jescott@whatshappeningbham.com
