Here we are with just a couple of days left in the Streetsblog spring pledge drive, and we’re two-thirds of the way to our goal of 400 donors. Every contribution makes a difference — please give what you can and support our coverage.
There’s a tremendous window of opportunity in New York right now to win safer streets and better transit, with momentum in both City Hall and Albany. By keeping New Yorkers informed and active on these issues — and by keeping public officials on their toes — Streetsblog makes the most of these chances. We rely on the support of our readers to produce our reporting and commentary, and the contributions we get during our pledge drives help keep us going the rest of the year.
Don’t forget, we also have two fabulous and useful items to give away to a couple of lucky donors. Your tax-deductible contribution before Sunday at midnight will put you in the running for a Cleverhood rain cape or a CINCH belt from Vespertine, available in one of three colors:
One final note: If you are feeling the guilt pangs of a regular Streetsblog reader who has yet to contribute, I suggest giving as soon as possible so you can fully enjoy the beautiful weekend.
