Win a free HEATED hat!
Just tell us what you liked this year, and we'll enter you in our raffle for Very Cool and Very Official merch.
As we approach the end of the year, we have a lot to be thankful for. But primarily we’re thankful for you, the readers who make our climate journalism possible.
So, as a token of our appreciation to our subscribers, we’re running a raffle to win one of our limited edition HEATED hats—the first pieces of merchandise HEATED has created in over four years of existence.
As a climate publication, we’ve always been a bit wary about selling merchandise, given that unhinged consumerism is a major driver of the climate crisis.
But this year was a banner year for our publication, and we wanted to celebrate our success. So we ordered 12 hats for our family and friends—and now we have three left over for you.
The hats come from Custom Ink, and are emblazoned with an embroidered version of the HEATED flame mascot, Oswald. They’re mostly made of cotton, but do have some plastic in the mesh and adjustable clasp.
To win one, all you have to do is comment on this post and answer ONE of the following questions:
What was your favorite HEATED article this year, and why?
If a HEATED article inspired you to take some form of action this year, what was the action, and which article inspired you?
Comments will be open until Wednesday, January 3, 2024 at 11:59 p.m EST. After that, we’ll choose three lucky winners via a randomized generator, who will be notified via email.
If you’re chosen, you’ll have 72 hours to respond with your shipping information before we go back into the comment pool and pick another winner.
The responses to these questions will do more than help three readers win a hat. They’ll also help us put together our end-of-year post, where we wrap up and reflect on everything HEATED has accomplished in Year 4.
If you’d like to help out with our end-of-year post but don’t particularly need or want a trucker hat, just say in your comment: “I don’t want a hat.”
As always, comments are limited to paid subscribers—which means this raffle, too, is paid subscribers only. But if you’re a free subscriber, you too can enter by upgrading to paid today.
By subscribing, you’re not only helping yourself potentially win a hat. You’re also helping us make our primary product: independent climate journalism. Just like our hats, that’s a pretty rare thing.
Catch of the Day: Keji, the extremely cool space dog, may be blind and deaf in one ear. But reader Jennifer says even he can see that it would be really stupid to destroy the planet.
When not saving the world, Keji likes to dance, herd the cat, and enjoys trips to the beach. He’d also like us to know that every single one us is valuable and worthy.
Thank you Keji 💚
