Project Print The News

I have a wonderful new project I am helping out with right now and we need a little help. I have assembled a group of 5 young women that also want to give back to the community through opening a small business group. One is an accountant, two are in sales, one would just like to be trained as a graphic designer, and me. I have a degree in Graphic Technologies and have run a newspaper before. We plan to operate an independant newspaper for our parish. This paper will contain local news and sports as well as informative articles, job listings in the area and more.

This project will be sustained by it's advertising revenue and the small fee of 25 cents per issue newsstand price. We already have several businesses in the area that have committed to our venture. What we need is a large format printer to help keep costs down, and offer inhouse printing and copy service. The cost of a smaller commercial unit is $1500 and we need your help to get it. Nothing fancy, we are opting for practical. We can do the layout and design, we can get people to purchase advertising, we can fold and deliver to the 12,000 residents in our parish, but not until we can PRINT it.

This venture will create jobs, and will provide valuable training for area residents that feel they have no hope and no place to turn to. It will also help to create a healthier economy by offering on the job training.

Please help us raise the $1500 we need for a large format printer to get started. Every dollar counts and we appreciate every dime dropped in donation jars and here online as we work to see our dreams come true.
