First and foremost, a huge thank you to the more than 200 people who donated to Shareable's crowdfunding campaign. In the end, we raised $40,183, with donations coming from readers in 26 different countries. Your donations are being put to use immediately to:
- Fund a community-driven book tour of Shareable's new book, "Sharing Cities: Activating the Urban Commons"
- Deepen our reporting in marginalized, overlooked communities
- Create a new website to grow our readership and engage our core community more effectively
It is typical during this time of the year that we reflect back on what we are thankful for. This year, the Shareable community is high on my list. We have made a commitment that Shareable will always be a free resource to all. It's humbling to see our readers answer our call to support our work — we asked and you delivered.
But our work is not done.
With the seemingly endless flow of news reporting on the political, environmental, and socio-economic perils facing the world, the future can at times look bleak. But we know that isn't the case. We know a better way, and that way is through sharing. Our solutions-based stories serve as a vital roadmap for revamping our communities and returning the power to the people. Help us finish the year strong by making a tax-deductible donation to Shareable.
