Po Campo’s stylish Logan Bike Trunk Bag.

Here at Streetsblog Chicago, we’re currently in a race against time. At this moment, we have $45,750 in our Resurrection Fund, but we need to hit $50K by April 8 in order to win the $25K challenge from the Chicago Community Trust that will allow us to resume publication. There are only eight days left to come up with the $4,250 we need.

You can help us reel in those last dollars and up your style quotient at the same time. Today and Wednesday, when you buy one of four select bike bags from our friends at Po Campo, Chicago’s homegrown bike bag company, they’ll donate 50 percent of sales to our revival effort. Use the coupon code “StreetsblogCHI” and you’ll get 10 percent off your purchase.

Click here to see Po Campo’s “StreetsblogCHI Collection.” The four bags, mostly named after Chicago neighborhoods, include the Loop Pannier, the Pilsen Crossbody Bag, the Logan Bike Trunk Bag, and the Bike Share Bag — a must for frequent Divvy users.

If you’re not in the market for bike gear, please consider making a cash donation to the Resurrection Fund. Remember: If Streetsblog Chicago doesn’t relaunch, John Kass wins.
