Whether or not you plan to attend the Music Midtown festival taking place in Piedmont Park this weekend, you can support Georgia Tech’s student radio station simply by lending a few words to Twitter.

WREK 91.1 FM is partnering with Toyota Free Yr Radio, a project that supports independent radio stations across the country. WREK will broadcast live from Music Midtown on Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from Noon to 8 p.m.; festival attendees can visit the Free Yr Radio Broadcast Stage on the southwest edge of the festival grounds.

The fundraising element comes from virtual support: Simply tweet a few words about independent radio and include the hashtag #ToyotaGiving. Every tweet through Saturday, Sept. 22, will yield a $2 donation to WREK, up to $2,000. Donations will also be made for Instagram photos that include the same hashtag. 

WREK broadcasts at 91.1 FM or wrek.org
