Give to Streetsblog By Thursday and You Could Win Goodies From Planet Bike

Thanks to everyone who’s given to Streetsblog and Streetfilms so far in our spring pledge drive — we’re nearly a quarter of the way to our fundraising goal of $40,000. I can’t emphasize enough how crucial it is for readers to chip in and help us reach our targets. Your contributions keep us going so we can deliver news and commentary about the transition to safer city streets that work for people, not cars. So keep those donations coming!

Thank you for supporting Streetsblog and Streetfilms. If we could give all our donors a free bike, we totally would.
