WYES and PBS fans across the Greater New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast are teaming together to show their support in an online campaign event — #ILoveWYES


WHAT: A peer-to-peer social media challenge coming this fall

WHY: WYES is the largest free educational & cultural resource in Greater New Orleans, SE Louisiana and on the MS Gulf Coast. The local & PBS programming we provide is solely dependent on your financial support.

Step 1: Build & Register Your Team!

  • Register below or call WYES (504) 486-5511
  • Have as many team members as you want
  • Choose a WYES/PBS program(s) to advocate for or just “love it all”!

Step 2: Spread the Word!
  • Getting the word out is easy – you can do it via text, email, social media, and in-person
  • We will provide tool kits and sample messages to get your team started
  • Create a team hashtag to use in social media (i.e. #teamjones or #teamantiqueroadshow)
  • WYES will provide a hyperlink to an online ‘homepage’ for your team. Share it online to tell friends why your team loves WYES and why you chose to raise money to support WYES and its exceptional programs.

Step 3: Fundraise!
  • Ask friends to donate to WYES and in honor of your selected program(s) from your ‘homepage.’ It will be easy and convenient for them to do!
  • Have fun getting the word out! Team members could post a personal video on Facebook or Instagram asking for donations and/or send fun texts or emails to associates

Step 4: Celebrate!
  • Team name or team members’ names will be listed on a ‘thank you’ spot that will air on WYES, as well as being mentioned in an ad in New Orleans magazine!
  • All participating teams will be invited to a special culmination celebration event!
  • The team that raises the most money and the team that has the most unique donors will win a private party in the WYES Charlie & Janette Kornman Studio with theatre seating to watch a Saints game!
  • Be proud knowing you helped further the WYES mission of providing entertaining and educational programming to viewers throughout southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast!
