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 :)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I read Grist's reporting on a daily basis, and follow and engage with the organization and many of its reporters on Twitter. They continually educate and inspire me to take action and make changes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would work for them :)

I receive news from Grist every day and consider it to be an indispensible resource for me professionally. It covers topics more than mainstream press and in fact has become a go to source, breaking stories later covered by the Post, Times, etc. And, it is wickedly amusing. I absolutely love the Grist.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I use the information they collect and distribute to help other organizations learn about issues and collaborate.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a series of positive environmental stories each day.

Grist provides concise journalistic interpretation of relevant environmental issues. Their independence lends credibility to their reporting. When my economy improves, Grist will benefit.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the reading of its materials to stay abreast of issues important to me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get the word out (make it a household name) about how great it is, and grant it unlimited resources.

I have been reading Grist for seveeral years, and donating as well to ensure they stay 'up and running'. I usually enjoy the articles, and always have the opportunity to learn a lot from the articles, as they are usually well annotated thru links to other articles/sources.
I recommend Grist highly.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By reading articles in Grist and following up on the links and doing my own research, I have become better able to discuss with, and occasionally persuade, others about environmental ideas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not really know what to change. I think they're doing a good job.

Grist is great! Back before they are where they are now just info e-mail place I was glad for the doom and gloom with a smile info I got every now and then when they had enough money to power up the computer for a few hours and share.
From those years to now Grist has not forgotten who ther are and who they share to.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sharing information and views with others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get Bill Gates or somone to donate enough money so they will stop asking me for help. Still on bred and water after my last donation.
