Grist reader, donor, and prize-winner (See? We really do give that stuff away!) Irvin Smith of Rochester Hills, Mich., sent in this adorable photo of his son and nieces eating ice cream out of the ice-cream maker he won. A big, public Grist thanks to Irvin.

As I was looking at the photo, I thought to myself: Self, what a fabulous opportunity to give props to all our wonderful donors. So thank you, Grist donors! We are but a humble nonprofit, and without your generosity, we’d all be sitting here in the dark.

Reader support makes our work possible. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations TRIPLED!

If you’re reading this and it moves you to donate a few bucks, know that we’ll spend it wisely on organic beer for the staff more of the same feisty, witty journalism you know and love.
