Give to Streetsblog and You Could Win a Planet Bike Commuter Pack

Thanks to everyone who’s stepped up and chipped in for our spring pledge drive. Your donations are helping us keep the lights on at Streetsblog and Streetfilms so we can deliver high-quality reporting, commentary, and videos covering the movement for safe streets, effective transit, and livable cities.

So now May is upon us, it’s Bike Month, and we’ve got 31 days to hit our target of $30,000. Five readers won subscriptions to “Yes!” magazine in our first round of prize-giving, and thanks to the generous folks at Planet Bike, we have some fantastic accoutrements to give away to three lucky donors. Each package includes:

Here’s most of the package in one place (note: not to scale)…

Reader contributions are an indispensable source of support for Streetsblog and enable us to produce in-depth coverage of the livable streets beat, from local neighborhoods to City Hall to Congress. Please give and help us put together the articles and videos you see on our site every day.

And remember, readers who earmark their contribution specifically for Streetsblog NYC or Streetfilms will be entered to win a new Schwinn city bike courtesy of our friends at Ride Brooklyn.

Happy Bike Month everyone. Thanks for reading and supporting Streetsblog.
