Briarpatch Magazine is celebrating 40 years of radical publishing with a 40-day campaign to step things up. From May 15 to June 23 we’re giving away daily prizes culminating in a grand prize draw. We’re looking for 40 new Sustainers who will donate $10 or more a month to keep Briarpatch thriving. Every new Sustainer gets the goods:

  • a self-renewing subscription to Briarpatch
  • a printed thank you in every issue of the magazine
  • entry in the day’s prize draw for new CDs, books, artwork, and more.

And it gets even better. Every new Sustainer is entered in the grand prize draw for an Electra Ticino 7-speed bicycle (retail value $800). The winner will be drawn on June 24th.

Already a Sustainer? Increase your donation by $5 a month and we’ll include you in the draw!

Join our growing community of Sustaining Subscribers by calling 1.866.431.5777 or texting “40” to 306.209.9110. We’ll follow-up fast.

Briarpatch has never been like other magazines. We don’t rely on government grants, wealthy benefactors, or corporate advertisers. We’re sustained by our readers, who know we don’t just report on social movements: we help build them.

Briarpatch punches well beyond the weight of its limited resources: just this month we beat out CBC’s The National and the Ottawa Citizen to win a 2012 Canadian Association of Journalists Award.

When you give to Briarpatch you build a platform for independent journalists, activists, and above all, social movements. Briarpatch is a forum where the vexed and the visionary come together as we build our shared capacities to understand and transform the world.

Sign up to be one of 40 new sustainers today, and watch where we go next together!
