We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

How about a wreath delivered in carbon-neutral style to the door it’ll hang on, or even a whole fresh-cut, locally sourced Christmas tree with low-energy, recyclable LED lights? City Tree Delivery partners with 1% for the Planet to donate money to green charities and with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for each one sold. And it offsets its entire carbon footprint using Terrapass . It also offers tree pickup and recycling.
