As you are no doubt aware, Grist in the midst of its first-ever fundraising drive. Here’s the story: Grist consists of precisely four paid staff members. We send out information by email at no charge to 60,000 people a day, and we post top-notch environmental news, commentary, and features on our website. Plus we point you to more opportunities for environmental activism than any other site on the web. And (admit it) we make you laugh. Trouble is, our shoestring budget is fraying. Help us keep Grist alive and snide by making a tax-deductible donation; money received by June 7 will be matched by generous Grist-lovers, so hop to it. We’ll even suspend our normal silliness for a moment of heartfelt thanks.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
