La Figa Holiday Gift Guide: Celebrate Krampus with Community-Focused and Socially Conscious-Themed Gifts

By: Friday December 14, 2012 2:50 pm

Gifts should reflect the giver’s awareness of recipient, and carry a bit of the giver’s personality. Practical, thoughtful, and thought-provoking are also important attributes. And because this is Firedoglake, a healthy dose of social consciousness never hurts.

Top of my list: FDL’s Free Bradley Manning t-shirt (there’s also an awesome sweatshirt). I ordered one for a friend as a Thanksgiving gift, and he loved it, and I have one myself. The cotton is soft, the design is super cool, and you’re helping to support Manning’s trial coverage and activism.

Want to give a group gift, say for the whole family or your office? Occupy Sandy desperately needs Tyvek suits to protect those who are cleaning up mold damage in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Or consider supplying Occupy with the FDL Occupy Supply items.

Occupy Firedoglake Membership!

When the Membership program first began, I made phone calls to welcome folks to their new Firedoglake Membership. Many were individuals whose nom de blogs I had seen in the comments, and many more were folks who had never commented at all but had lurked and enjoyed the original reporting and snark and activism of Firedoglake. Their support — and yours — is what keeps FDL and its team going.

Firedoglake Members Help Us Innovate for Change

By: Tuesday February 28, 2012 12:40 pm

The Firedoglake Memberhsip program is vitally important to sustain Firedoglake’s progressive reporting, analysis and community activism. And it’s helping us explore the intersection of online and traditional activism more and more. Occupy Supply is a prime example. Without the support of our over 1,400 members, Occupy Supply would have been nothing but a fantasy, and from what we’ve seen, the over 70 Occupy groups we have supported would have been on their own for the winter.

Sunday Late Night: “You Gotta Give ‘Em Hope”

By: Sunday May 22, 2011 8:01 pm

Harvey Milk had plenty of comfort to spare for the afflicted, but he damn sure afflicted the comfortable as best he could. Wouldn’t Harvey be horrified at the oligarchy, the plutocracy that sets — and benefits from — almost all American policy today?
