UPDATE – 1-10-12

We did it! We raised over $13,100 to support our Safe Streets Campaign in 2012. Thank you to each of your who gave to the campaign, our most successful fundraising campaign ever. It was thanks to you, those who donated $25 to $250 dollars that made it a smashing success.

Still haven’t given, but it’s in your to-do pile?

We still need your support, because your membership and donations help us get New Orleans Streets In Gear.

As a bonus, one of our board members has donated a signed Stephen King novel that will be raffled off. For every $20 of your donation, you will be entered to win the novel.

Please give online to give us extra power at City Hall today!

  • Fund “5% for Bikes” –We’re advocating to make sure this budget dedication for bicycles remains a part of future roadwork projects.
