NPR Parties Hard on 40th Birthday

By Alec Jacobs Comment

If all you’ve ever wanted was an NPR button, today is your lucky day. They’re celebrating their 40th birthday by giving out buttons at Chinatown Coffee Co. Hurry up before they run out which, if this bucket of buttons is any indication, will be never.

They’re celebrating in a few other ways, too. Like with popsicles! The Pleasant Pops food truck will be parked outside NPR’s D.C. offices at 2 p.m. giving out free popsicles. They specifically stressed that FishbowlDC readers are welcome to the popsicles.

NPR lovers with Twitter accounts are encouraged to change their avatars to one of the NPR-themed pictures found here and the organization will be posting “vintage” photos from their 40 years throughout the day.

Finally, at the end of the day, NPR wants tweeters to tweet out what NPR person they’d most like to have cake with, and tag their tweets with “#happybdayNPR.”

Feel free to partake in all, some or none of these birthday festivities.
