Last October, we launched the GGWash Neighborhood, our membership program that provides financial support for our work while giving readers new ways to connect with each other and our content. After eight months, we have over 550 Neighbors and have raised over $54,000 to support the blog. Thank you to everyone who joined!
To commemorate the first year of the GGWash Neighborhood, and reward both new and renewing members, we are creating a special GGWash Calendar. This 2020 calendar will feature photos, maps, and charts that highlight great content from the blog. It will also have urbanist-themed birthdays and anniversaries throughout the year. Whether you hang the calendar in your home or at your office, you’ll always have a fun tidbit about transportation, land use, and public policy at your fingertips.
Active members will have a chance to reserve a calendar this summer and receive it in the fall. You’ll also be able to order extras as gifts, for a small fee.
Not a member? We don’t want you to miss out on this celebration of GGWash content and community. Join today and you’ll be able to reserve a calendar later this summer. Membership starts at just $5/month and gets you free tickets to our events and access to our online discussion group.
The 2020 GGWash Calendar will be a hard-copy commemoration of the best GGWash content from the past year. And I need your help to make it happen. Please submit content for consideration. I’m looking for two types of content:
- Dates of significant birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays related to Washington-area urbanism on our submission form
- Photos, maps, charts, etc to be a month’s picture - you can email these to me (email@example.com), along with any creator/copyright information you have. These should be taken from your favorite blog posts from the past year.
The deadline to submit material is June 30.
I’m really excited about this project! I hope it will make the second year of the GGWash Neighborhood even stronger than the first. We will have a calendar release party in the fall and you’ll all be invited. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or want to share any feedback.
