We would love it if you could tell us any of your ideas over on our Facebook page. If not, you can always come and look at our exclusive videos, images and stories there. You can even show us your nature photography that we may feature on our “Life Is” website. After all, this month is all about sharing.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
