For almost a decade, Shareable has shown how people around the world have been creating resilient and equitable societies through sharing and collaboration. We've provided a platform to uplift the work of everyday people, community organizers, and city leaders who are helping solve some of the pressing problems facing the world today. While we've come a long way, we have much further to go. As a nonprofit, we need the support of our readers to ensure that we can report on inspiring and impactful sharing projects, both locally and globally.

So today we are launching our 2017 crowdfunding campaign. We are aiming to raise $100,000 in 60 days. It's an ambitious goal, but falling short is not an option. We need your help to keep us going. Your tax-deductible donation will not only help sustain Shareable's work, it will help us deepen our reporting and produce even more inspiring, solutions-oriented stories. Can we count on you?
