Supporting creativity in harder-to-reach children
Our spring 2019 fundraising drive is to raise additional funds to support our programs and partnerships reaching out to kids living in challenging circumstances. All the money raised through this appeal will be devoted to finding new ways to seek out and support the harder-to-reach Stone Soup readers and contributors of today and tomorrow. It will also help to fund an important benefit we have extended to subscribing Public Libraries: free submissions for all children who use the library's Stone Soup subscription to submit their work to us. This public access helps us to help less advantaged young people send us their work, free of any submission fees, for consideration by our Editor.
As well as asking for cash support, we are also devoting all the money raised from sales of a vintage copy of Stone Soup Magazine, the Special Navajo Issue published in 1989, to this campaign. We have 60 copies of the magazine available in our online store, at $15 per copy, and if we sell them all we’ll raise $900 from that alone. You can find and place your order for the issue here: http://stonesoupstore.com/stone-soup-magazine-special-navajo-issue-may-june-1989/.
