MaxFunDrive Digital Premiums: Unlocked!


It is the very last day of the 2016 MaxFunDrive! If you've been holding out until the last minute, your time has come -- the last minute is here! Join or upgrade your membership now; it's your last shot to score the exclusive pledge drive thank you gifts, help MaxFun make a difference in the LA community, and know that you counted toward our final grand total of new and upgrading members.

We're still racking up those meals for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank; we're already at over 14,000 meals for Angelenos in need. MaxFun is donating 5 meals for each person who joins or upgrades between now and the end of the live show.

Speaking of the live show, we're topping off the pledge drive with a livestreamed JJGo! Travis McElroy's new tattoo will be revealed, #BugHat will be unveiled, and loads of other amazing guests are lined up. The fun kicks off at 7 PM PDT tonight, and we'll have details on how to watch the show at

Did we mention we're at 7854 new and upgrading members? We left our first stretch goal in the dust, so MaxFun members can look forward to an exclusive pledge drive wallpaper by Megan Lynn Kott and a MaxFun ringtone. If you're not a member yet, here's a little sneak peek Megan sent us yesterday of just one small portion of the final wallpaper:

I bet you didn't know you needed Scout Leader Judge John Hodgman in your life until this moment, did you?

We have one final stretch goal up our sleeves. If we hit 10,000 new and upgrading members, we're unleashing Jordan, Jesse, Jetpack (+friends) on the world. We'll put Jordan, Jesse, Carrie Poppy, and Travis McElroy in jetpacks, and record it for your joy and amusement. Jesse is game but a little miffed that we came up with the idea (I think he doesn't love heights). Support independent media, feeding hungry families, and amateur exposure therapy in one fell swoop by joining or upgrading your membership right NOW. Thank you so much!
