Last week, when everyone was getting all sappy over Thanksgiving, did you give thanks for Streetsblog? Even a little bit?
Maybe, as you gave thanks for health and family, you thought about the hours you spend reading Streetsblog’s thorough coverage of the issues that you’re most passionate about — the things that either make your streets livable and safe or relegate them to being sewers for car traffic.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be trying to raise $90,000 to ensure that we can keep pounding out the four-star livable streets coverage you’re used to. Will you help us get there?
Your tax-deductible gift to Streetsblog and Streetfilms will help us keep bringing you the news you count on. Our readers — who include members of Congress, bus drivers, bike advocates, finance wonks (you get the picture) — tell us that Streetsblog articles are constantly circulating around their networks. Advocates tell us they wouldn’t be where they are today if they didn’t learn through Streetsblog about other communities that have surmounted similar hurdles. And when we share disappointing stories of near-misses, we come together as a community to redouble our efforts for the next time.
Thank you to everyone who’s supported our work — and please keep it coming, because your contributions are essential to producing influential Streets Media.
For extra motivation, thanks to our friends at PUBLIC Bikes we are giving away one classy C7 and one beautiful V7 bicycle to two lucky readers who give $50 or more. We’ll hold the drawing after December 31, and the first name out of the hat gets first pick. Feast your eyes:
Thank you for giving and making Streetsblog and Streetfilms a valuable, high-impact, community-supported resource.
