Tess Vigeland: And finally to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award. Our little blue plastic friend is heading to BERLIN! Specifically, the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who not only saved money this week, she arguably saved an entire currency. For now.

Merkel pushed through an expansion of a bailout fund for eurozone countries teetering on the edge of insolvency. We don’t know that it will solve all the problems over there — or here for that matter — but at least it’s something. All I ask is that you not turn our friend into bratwurst.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re counting on you today!

Marketplace helps you stay financially responsible all year, now we need YOUR help to keep our budget on track.
Donate NOW to help us hit our target of 2,500 Marketplace Investors by June 30!
