SAN YSIDRO – On June 1, Pedestrians stand in line while waiting to cross into the United States from Mexico at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Ysidro, Calif. The Western Hemisphere Initiative, which went into effect June 1, requires visitors and residents to present an approved travel document at all points of entry. Travel documents include a U.S. passport or passport card, a Trusted Traveler Card (SENTRI, NEXUS or FAST) or an Enhanced Driver’s License. (Photo by Sandy Huffaker/​Getty Images)

Become a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Many of you expressed interest in magazine subscriptions, gift subscriptions, tote bags, events and books —and we’ve added all of those. Some of you said that cost was an issue, so we’ve kept our starting tier at just $5 a month—less than 17 cents a day.

Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with unique rewards at each level, for you to choose from. Check out the new Sustainer program.
