The Stranger needs your help
Seattle has created a lot of great things, but one of our favorite things to come out of Seattle is The Stranger. And if that doesn’t immediately ring a bell, you’ve been missing out. But, we’ll bet you’ve seen their bright newspaper covers at stores around town.
The Stranger has been Seattle’s most unique news, entertainment and events guide since 1991. Did we mention it’s also always been free? Oh and, they won a Pulitzer Prize in 2012 and have launched the careers of world favorites like Dan Savage. Not to mention, they’re the only print newspaper in Seattle, well the only one really worth reading, at least.

But like a lot of Seattle, they’ve been hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, 90% of their revenue came from advertising, ticketing fees, and their own events. Obviously, those things are all directly tied to people getting together in groups. And as we all know that won’t be happening for quite a while.
So in an age of the best local and original news outlets being gobbled up by conglomerates, we are urging you to support The Stranger. We can’t imagine Seattle without The Stranger, where else would we get all our weird events and stories from? There just truly isn’t anything in our city that compares to this publication.
So if you’d like to and are able to support The Stranger, click here. And if you’d like to check out what they’re writing online, click here. If you’re not able to contribute financially, consider posting their donation link to your social media. But that being said $5 can go a long way. With that, let’s continue to support the locals that make our city what it is.
Have a great week Seattle!
