One Good Turn Deserves… A Tern Folding Bike


Big thanks to all of you who have donated to Streetsblog Chicago in recent weeks to help us reach our goal of $3,000 by January 1 — we’re more than two-thirds of the way there. If we can hit $3K by the time the giant Chicago star rises on the Hyatt Regency Hotel, it will be a great head start on our efforts to fund our next year of hard-hitting livable streets coverage.

But time is running out. We have less than 36 hours left to raise $840. If you appreciate having a voice for safe, efficient, and vibrant streets in Chicago, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today. Your gift will help ensure we can continue to bring you the latest in walking, biking, transit, development, and public space news.

To sweeten the deal, the Streetsblog network will be raffling off a handy Link D8 folding bike, generously donated by our friends at Tern Bicycles, to one lucky reader who donates to any of the Streetsblog sites by the end of the year. That includes contributions earmarked for Streetsblog Chicago.

Thanks again for continuing support of Streetsblog Chicago’s sustainable transportation reporting and advocacy. Here’s wishing you a safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
