Of all the charities I support, I believe that my contributions are most effective at Grist. I could benefit from grist.org whether or not I was a contributor, but I feel that Grist benefits from grass-roots supporters like me, who are the site's primary audience. I am part of the Grist community as a reader, and sense that I am like immediate family as a result of my contribution

As a longtime reader of Grist, I feel that my donations to them are really just money that I owe them for all of their amazing journalism and advocacy, and for the energy that they inject into the green movement. I have made donations in response to their appeals, but also in response to reading an awesome article. Sometimes I make a gift to get whatever cool giveaway they have, but most of the time it is simply because I am thankful for all that they do and I want to ensure that they stay around.

Grist is my go-to website for breaking and in-depth reporting on all matters environmental. They are especially useful in providing a deeper and more contextual look that is not partisan or knee-jerk, but thoughtful and smart (with a very healthy dose of hilarious). Grist is my one-stop shop for all news environmental--and even environmental takes on seemingly "unrelated" news. And Ask Umbra is my mentor, whether she knows it or not :)

Grist has been a vital source for educating the public about issues of great impact to our world and its wildlife and human populations. It routinely brings issues to our attention that often are not addressed in the typical media outlet such as radio, internet and TV and if so is given only a cursory mention with no details or discussion - which is what is needed. Grist is an excellent investigative resource and I will continue to recommend and utilize this organization for up to date and critical review and explaination of serious issues that our country must address. I thank them for their relentless search for the truth as well as their campaigns to urge readers to get involved in resolution of issues facing our great country.

Grist has a wealth of information regarding health and environmental issues which is cutting edge and timely. I have been reading their website daily for as long as I can remember. Also, I have referred many friends and family who also discuss the issues addressed on this site. It saves time and is accurate. I look forward to their e-mails and read them thoroughly.

Located new material providers; connected with new ideas for solutions - on a personal level I have become active in the organic movement - I now raise much of my own produce which I share with the local food banks, friends and neighbors while encouraging others to start growing their own gardens. I encourage others to stop dousing their yards with detrimental chemicals as well.

Wish they had a more secure source of money. Meanwhile they do an excellent job with what sources they have.

February 26, 2012

Over the past year, my appreciation of Grist's reporting has diminished to the point where I stopped subscribing to the newsletter. I still check the website occasionally for articles that may be of interest. However, it bothers me that many of the articles I read are somewhat spiteful of other viewpoints. Though that many be a good way to appease hardcore fans, it doesn't help bring burgeoning environmentalists into the fold. It also reflects the "anti" characterization that society is giving to environmentalists today. While we do need to remain strong and keep fighting for the environment, we also need to be careful to not create divisions between environmentalists and people who can help us (e.g. people interested in social justice, politicians, etc.).

Grist is a great publication that provides daily information on a HUGE variety of environmental topics. On top of all the work they do researching and writing informative articles, they maintain a positive outlook that gives readers hope and inspires them to continue working toward a clean, healthy environment that benefits the planet and all the people on it.

Grist continues clever, funny, pithy, focussed, and entertaining. We need humor to help us fathom the unfathomable gulf between serious science pronouncements and self-centered head-inthe-sand consumer/government behavior in response thereto. Grist Magazine has used every clever headline in the lexicon already, but there must be more, as they come up with them every day. I'm involved in a number of not-for-profit projects and organizations, many in the environmental arena. Grist remains my favorite source for news and politics - EVEN BETTER than Jon Stewart and The Daily Show (which I've never seen since I don't have a television).

GRIST manages to find several stories about the environmental movement EVERY DAY to send to us. Each is headlined with a witty punny intro. GRIST is irreverent, resourceful, clever, factual, suspicious, skeptical, and pithy.

Their in-depth articles and videos on how to live a "green" life
with every-day suggestions from deodorant to doorstops are entertaining and practical.

Our family is proud to support this wise, fun, far-reaching, creative web-operation and thank their staff for their excellent work.
