STOP PRESS: We are now FUNDED! We reached our first milestone and then some, and finally came in at £10,350. Big thanks to everyone for making this a great success and we are happy to announce we have now officially started work on Issue Two.
So this is it, the final day of our crowdfunding appeal for Transition Free Press. Tense nail-biting behind the scenes, as the outcome will determine whether the crew will be paid a small fee for the last six months’ hard work and we will be able to cross the financial bridge to our next May issue.
At the time of writing we have reached our first target of £10K of our final £15K on Valentine’s Day. We have 86 terrific backers and need about 40 more to make this big deadline. All contributions, from the new £5 Kind Supporter level through to the Highly Esteemed Change Maker (£750) are welcome. You can also become a TFP Friend and sign up for an annual subscription (£15).
Meanwhile there are reports of brisk sales of TFP Issue 1 in fairs, festivals, farmer’s markets and film showings around the UK. We’ve also had 2942 reads of our on-line version. These pix are from the stall we (that’s Mark Watson, distribution manager and ed, Charlotte Du Cann) shared with Greenpeace at their Waveney Valley Winter Fair on Saturday. Over 50 copies sold and with lots of good conversations too.
Let’s keep this new media and Transition comms tool going! We’ve already started on Issue 2 . . .
