Grist wraps up summer fundraiser with one final plea

A new study shows that donating to charity activates some of the same pleasure spots in the brain that eating and sex activate. For real! And writing a check (or using PayPal) is much tidier than those other activities. So please, consider giving to Grist — today is the very last day of our 2007 keep-this-nonprofit-afloat summer fundraiser. We’ve come a long way with your help, and we’re eager to keep up the good work and bad puns. Bonus: if you give $100 or more by 11:59 p.m. PDT tonight, you could still get a shot at winning a Gristravaganza Green Living Starter Kit! So please give what you can. And thank you.
