Donate to Reason If You Love Free Minds, Free Markets, and Free Content
Reason‘s motto is “free minds and free markets.” But we also believe in free content. You read our website for free. You listen to our podcasts for free. You watch our videos for free. You get our newsletters for free.
We believe it’s so important to get the word out about ways that individual liberty makes the world a better place that we do labor- and resource-intensive journalism every single day, and then we toss it into the ether for you to enjoy while you’re goofing off at work or driving to soccer practice or sitting on the toilet.
We bring you stories about how to take shrooms, supply-chain policy shenanigans, the fate of barely legal strippers in Texas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s litany of failures, and the miscarriages of criminal justice every single day. Because when you love something, you give it away for free. (Even the stuff in the print magazine eventually goes online for free, though you should still subscribe to get the full dead-tree experience.)
All that great stuff costs money to make. And that’s where you come in.
Between now and December 7, we’re going to be asking you to donate to Reason to support the creation of the content you enjoy. We’ll be reminding you about why it’s important to donate with some posts like this one, and we’ll be hitting you with some pop-up ads. (What’s that? You hate pop-up ads? You can make them go away by—you guessed it—donating!) There will be a special video episode of The Reason Roundtable podcast where you can ask Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch, Peter Suderman, and me anything you want. (Submit your questions before 5:00 today to [email protected].) There will be swag!
To give you an idea of what your donation buys, I’ve helpfully matched the giving levels with the kind of vital work, gear, and services your money would help pay for:
If you hit us with $50, you’ll get a temporary Reason tattoo. You’ll also buy coffee for the D.C. office for a week. This is important. There’s nothing worse than Christian Britschgi in caffeine withdrawal; he just starts stabbing people with plastic straws like he’s a vampire and we’re a bunch of human Capri Suns.
Donate $100 and we’ll add a Reason magazine digital subscription (which includes access to
