Donate Today to Support Streetsblog and Win Bike Gear

You all make my day. Listen to what people are saying as they donate to Streetsblog’s spring pledge drive event:

“You are helping build a healthier USA.”

“Nobody else provides the sort of comprehensive coverage of these issues as you do.”

“Streets are not just for cars, and needn’t be so ugly. Yours is a great voice in service of that direction.”

“Have loved you guys from the start. Keep up the great work.”

“You guys make everything possible.”

Seriously, I’m blushing.

It’s wonderful to know that our reporting on livable streets issues around the country matters to you. Whether we’re reporting on the transportation reauthorization in Washington, DC, or rogue crosswalk painters in Washington state, it’s good to know you’re reading — and that you’re taking action.

So please take action right now in support of the media you care about: Donate to Streetsblog before Friday at midnight and you could win a black Loop Pannier from Chicago-based biz Po Campo.

Thanks for all your support. With your help, we’ll reach 400 donors by June 1. And we’ll keep bringing you the coverage that “makes everything possible.”
