Family week continues today with a selection from my London-loving sister. This is a view on a hazy day from the top of the Eye, London’s famously huge ferris wheel. It’s highly recommended if you visit. Some of you might be put off by the fact that it’s such a touristy thing to do—and it is—but you’re a tourist. Embrace it. And it really is fun and it really does provide a great view. On the downside, it’s a bit pricey and, in summer, can get crowded at peak times. Plan accordingly.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
