Grist loves readers, readers love Grist. Mwahhh!

From our new office, we have a view of Seattle’s two sports stadiums. And we’ll tell you what: put together, they’re still not big enough to contain our immense gratitude to those who donated during our recent fundraiser — and to all of you for putting up with our “please give us money” emails. About 1,400 of you opened your wallets and hearts to Grist, helping us raise nearly $85,000. Thanks a million! (Or at least $85,000.) Besides the new digs, your donations are helping us move forward with plans for bigger, brighter content — so keep an eye on us. Keep an eye out later this month, too, as we draw the winners of our fabulous fundraiser prizes. And hey, if you meant to give but didn’t get around to it, it’s never too late. Operators are standing by — though they do occasionally sit for a spell.
