15 Days Left in Our Spring Pledge Drive — This Week: Win a Vaya Bag

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blogging for a quick pep talk. Thanks to our generous and supportive readers, Streetsblog and Streetfilms are almost halfway to our goal of raising $30,000 by June 1. We’ve got two weeks left to raise $17,000 — help us reach that target so we can keep making the case for designing cities around people, not cars.

Your donations directly fund the original reporting, commentary, and videos we produce — powerful content that influences the decision makers who shape our streets and neighborhoods.

For a bit of added incentive this week, we’re giving away a new handmade messenger bag from Vaya, makers of bags and other bike accessories using recycled materials, to one lucky reader who donates by May 24 at midnight. Here’s a look:

Readers who direct their donation specifically to Streetsblog NYC or Streetfilms by May 24 will also be eligible to win a tour for two of the Mast Brothers chocolate factory in Williamsburg, which comes with some intense chocolate bars too:

And don’t forget the big drawing at the end of the pledge drive for a new Schwinn city bike courtesy of Ride Brooklyn — everyone who donates $50 or more to Streetsblog NYC or Streetfilms will be entered to win.

If you value the work we do at Streetsblog and Streetfilms to advance livable streets and green transportation, please give. Thanks as always for reading.

    That sure is a good looking bag.
