What you can do, currently.

T minus one week left on our Project Mushroom Kickstarter. We’re building Project Mushroom as a community platform for justice and action on an overheating planet — and it’s go time! Your support has made it possible for us to build this community, but we aren't finished yet.

We’re about 65% of the way to our 200K goal. If every Currently subscriber pledged just $12 tonight, we’d meet our goal by tomorrow. Or maybe you want to do even more? We need just 320 people to pledge $250 to reach our goal.

There's no billionaire in charge here, so we're raising money as we go to support fair wages for our moderators, development team, and trust and safety experts to keep up our tremendous momentum in line with our shared values.

We’re hosting an information session, on Mon, Dec 12, 2022, at 7 PM EST, to tell you more about Project Mushroom and answer your questions. Reserve your spot now!
