They have set up a GoFundMe page to cover the costs for 6 people to travel to the convention and are asking for a very small amount. As of this morning, they have reached their goal, but anything extra will help cover unforeseen costs. From their campaign page:
We Are America Radio (WAARadio) has partnered with the Right Side Broadcasting Network to bring you the best audio and video grassroots coverage possible.
Our members (team of six) are traveling to the Republican National Convention for the first time to provide you wall-to-wall coverage of one of the most important election events ever.
We are not funded by a corporation or business. We are listener-supported. We want to give you the best grassroots coverage and promise you we won't cut corners.

Our plans are to give you four (4) hours of LIVE radio and video coverage from the Republican National Convention Radio Row every day (4 pm - 8 pm EST). We plan on arriving Sunday, July 17, 2016, broadcasting July 18, 2016 and leaving on July 22, 2016.

We have partnered with TalkMediaNews, who has allowed us access to their table for the week, but along with that comes costs for that space/time. We have also decided to secure a rental unit for the group, so we are not paying increased prices for the convention.
Here are our expenses:
Broadcasting Required Costs - $2,000
Lodging - $6,000 - $9,000 (total cost for 5 members)
Transportation x 6 - $3,000
Food for the week (for 6) - $1,500
We all plan to stay in the same location (AirBnB unit we plan to rent out for the week). This will allow us to control hotel costs which have skyrocketed the last couple of weeks (ex $75.00 room is now $330.00 a night).
You will have full access to our live and video streaming, chatroom, and other special events and contests. Time is of the essence as we have to at least have the broadcasting costs within the next two weeks.
Please share with your friends and family and thank you on behalf of our broadcast team!
