    Generosity feels good

    Acting only in our own self-interest actually isn't very rewarding is it? If you recognise this feeling, then you probably already know how being generous towards others is not only good for them, but actually feels good for yourself. So, while we'll send you a copy of the magazine in the post, the best thing about this reward is knowing that your generosity has allowed us to give free copies of the magazine to strangers in London.

    Society Rebel

    While elements of our society encourage us to only focus on what we stand to gain from a situation, you actively choose to go against this - recognising that society is a kinder, fairer, and better place to live when we care for others as much as we do ourselves. By rebelling in this way, by giving money to help us give free copies of the magazine to strangers in London that you will never meet, you are changing the rules of society. Yay for the rebels! As a thank-you, we'll send you a copy of the magazine and both the riso prints.
