The Streetsblog San Francisco crew is taking Christmas and New Year’s off, and we’ll be back in 2010 ready and charged to provide some hard-hitting livable streets coverage. We’ll also be celebrating our one-year anniversary. That’s right, Streetsblog is about to turn a year old. Can you believe it? 

To celebrate, we’ll be hosting a Streetsblog Anniversary Party and Fundraiser at the LGBT Community Center from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 21st. We’ll provide food and drinks, we hope you’ll provide your wit and cheer.

As we leave you for the holidays, we’d like to remind you that Streetsblog is part of a non-profit that relies on donations from individuals, foundations and readers like you. Please consider giving a year-end tax-deductible contribution to Streetsblog San Francisco to help us expand our coverage in 2010.

For a limited time, we’re offering all $100 donors a special best of Streetfilms DVD and t-shirt. Your donation will help us provide more Bay Area Streetfilms in 2010, and you get to enjoy some of our favorite Streetfilms up to now!

We’d also like to thank all the generous donors who answered our initial call for donations last week. Thank you for supporting Streetsblog, and we look forward to hitting the streets again in 2010!

    For 2010, I’d like to see Streetsblog do more on street advocacy. When you do hyper-local stories it would be great if paper copies were posted on streetlamps so people walking by could read the story and then come to the website.

    Increase your readership by ten fold. The only way to accelerate change is to get more people demanding it.

    I’d also like to see some Streetsblog stickers made up for people’s bikes. Perhaps hand them out at Sunday Streets.
