We did it! We saved Crinkling News!!!
It has been quite a rollercoaster fortnight, I’ve bitten off all my nails, cried some tears and lost a fair bit of sleep.
But I feel we have snatched hope and inspiration from the jaws of the machine.
More than 1500 people donated or subscribed to keep this children’s newspaper printing: we’ve even had kids sending in their pocket money, or running cake stalls and school fundraisers. AMAZING!!!
Crinkling News is about empowering children. It’s about giving kids the opportunity to be informed about what’s going on in the world. It’s about letting kids know that their efforts and ideas can make a difference, and help make the world a better place.
And this morning, I feel the world is a better place. THANK YOU AGAIN for your contributions, for helping to spread the word, for believing in the need to give kids a great newspaper to read, create and learn from.
You can still contribute or subscribe here: http://igg.me/at/savecrinkling
Subscriptions arrive in your letterbox (or your kids’ letterbox :-)) once a week, in full colour and bursting with optimism and real news.
