Calculate the Precise Amount of Your Support For Streetsblog

Public radio interrupts programming with its pledge drives. The Girl Scouts’ fundraising cookie sales clog your arteries and make you fat. Here at Streetsblog, we don’t do either. We just put up a post once in a while to remind you that we need your support. (This is that post.)

And lucky for you, we’ve made the process easier. Rather than determining your contribution based on how generous (or hungry) you’re feeling at the moment, we’ve figured out a rational and precise way to pick a dollar figure.

That’s it! Add it up, click here to donate that amount. And a few lucky contributors will win a one year subscription to YES! magazine.

And, thank you, as always, for reading and supporting Streetsblog.

 

Yours for safe and sustainable streets,

Tanya Snyder
