An additional perk for donors!
Donor and former Denver zinester, Nia, suggested that the Denver Zine Library display the favorite zines of donors at the Denver Zine Library. What a great idea! Feel free to send us up to three titles and if we have them, we’ll put them out to show off our amazing collection!
The Denver Zine Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit!
Does your work have an employee gift match program? If so, you can double your donation! We’ll send a receipt for your donation to submit through your employer. Please contact us with any questions.
Please spread the word! Repost your favorite video!
The success of this campaign is in your hands! Please continue to spread the word by passing around this link: http://www.indiegogo.com/Keeping-zines-in-our-hands. We’ll still be uploading a new video every day through the rest of the month, so keep checking back to see them all!
