Donate Today and Win Some Bike-Centric Summer Reading!

Usually when nonprofits start a fundraising campaign, they set a goal for how much money they want to bring in. But we’re doing it a little differently this time. We set a goal for how many people we wanted to connect with during this pledge drive.

Our goal this time is for 400 people to donate to our pledge drive. Won’t you be one of them? Your gift will help keep us in business, writing and reporting on all the news that matters to livable streets activists and policymakers. Even better, when you donate, it lets us know that our work matters to you.

For our part, we’ll keep bringing you the news as Washington tries to close in on a transportation bill (or at least a funding fix) and all the exciting innovations and outrageous errors from transportation movements around the country.

And, if you donate before next Tuesday at midnight, you’ll be entered to win a package of zines and books donated by feminist bike activist and writer Elly Blue, including The Culinary Cyclist, PDX by Bike, and her take on the ever-popular sci-fi/women’s studies/bicycling genre, Bikes in Space.

Elly-Blue-booksP.S. Your one-time gift is a huge help and it lets us know how much you appreciate our coverage. But if you want to be a major-league superhero, you can become a monthly donor. That lets us know we can count on you into the future.
