How Do You Love NPR? Help Us Count The Ways...

With February 14 only two weeks away, "This is NPR" is looking for love. NPR love, that is.

Throughout the year, guests of NPR programs (and some who weren't guests at all) have held up their support for public radio, all posted right here in the I Heart NPR series.

Listeners and fans have also shared their public radio love in every way you can imagine: during music festivals...

on sidewalks...

at weddings...

You may even remember seeing LEGO and cartoon versions of your favorite hosts or the occasional Ryan Gosling-themed 'Hey Girl' Tumblr photo. NPR love is everywhere, and we can't get enough of it.

Now it's your turn to tell us how you "I Heart NPR." Are you a professor who consistently slips Nina Totenberg into PowerPoint presentations? ... Do you dress like Bob Boilen? ... Or, do you wear your love on your sleeve, tote or car? We want to know about it!

Show us how you heart NPR or support your local Member station by submitting photos, videos, songs, etc., by email to thisisnpr@npr.org or share a comment below. Encourage your friends to participate by tweeting with the hashtag #NPRLife.

Submissions will be featured in a blog post on Valentine's Day, Tuesday, Feb. 14. As another incentive, the NPR Communications team will pick our five favorite entries and send the contributors some "I Heart NPR" swag in return. Subscribe to 'This is NPR' blog (or by clicking on the square RSS icon under Podcast + RSS Feeds on the right-hand side of this page) or check back here in two weeks for a slideshow of the submissions.

Thanks for sharing the love!
