Once every two weeks, we gather mind-blowing, life-affirming, good news stories from around the world that didn't make it into the evening news, and send them out in our newsletter. It's a fortnightly dose of science, technology and optimism called The Crunch.

We love putting it together, we love the community of people who read it, and we want to say thank you to everyone who's been a part of the journey. 

Here's our pitch... 

Do you think that good quality content and curation is worth paying for? Do you think that it's something that should be rewarded? If the answer is yes, then please join us. 

We're taking all the money we raise here, and giving it away to individuals and organisations that are using science, technology and human ingenuity to make good stuff happen. In other words...

YOU FUND US.

WE GIVE IT ALL TO CHARITY. 


We're going to gather up all of your pledges, and give them to small organisations, social initiatives or charities that are using science and technology to do great things in the world. Telescopes for kids who've never seen the planets, coding schools for girls in the slums, drones to stop elephant poaching, 3D printed prosthetics for people who've never been able to afford them... you get the picture. 

We don't just want to break everyone out of the bad news bubble - we want to transform our community of readers into one that actively helps bring a better world into existence. 

You trust us to curate good content. Now we're asking you to trust us to find people all over the world that are making good things happen, and lend them a helping hand.

Thank you. We know paying for information on the internet is rare, and we don't take it for granted.

"There have definitely been a few times in my life when I've paid this for a bad glass of red wine. This newsletter is worth at least that. Take me to space!" 


That's awesome, we're over the moon that you think the newsletter is worth this (see what we did there?). 

  • We'll put your name on the website.
  • We're also sending you five beautifully illustrated prints of our favourite quotes, from five of our favourite people.

"Sometimes, when I'm feeling particularly generous, I buy someone a beer. Sure, it's probably an overpriced craft beer. But I like craft beer. And you know what Future Crunch? I think you're super, so I'm buying you a beer too."


Hey, seriously thank you, that's incredibly generous. The support will really help us. 

  • You get all lower tier rewards, plus...
  • Your very own "Y'ALL MOTHAFUCKAS NEED SCIENCE" Future Crunch mug! You can proudly display this at the office. Or just take it home and give it to your kids. Don't blame us.

"That's a lot of money, but I'd spend it on a restaurant meal without blinking. I trust you guys to do the right thing with it, and I'll be able to see exactly which causes you're giving to. Sign me up, rainbows for everyone!"


Whoa! We're not even sure what to say here. This is way above and beyond the call of duty.  Perhaps unicorns are real after all? Thank you thank you, wow. 

  • You get all lower tier rewards, plus...
  • A Future Crunch hoodie, serious swag, serious street cred. We'll make sure it's one you actually want to wear, and a wardrobe item that you can be proud of.

We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

We're speechless. You are, truly, one of the Elder Gods. 

  • You get all lower tier rewards, plus...
  • If you're in Melbourne, or if you ever pass through, we are going to take you out for a meal.

Imagine you're out there in the world, a small charity or organisation showing up day in and day out to improve the lives of people and the planet. It's a thankless task. And then one day, some random group of newsletter subscribers says, "hey, you know what? Good job, here's $2,000."

Wouldn't that be a lovely thing?
