FW: Help SageWoman rebound from our $12,000 loss.
Hello! I know I haven’t been to book group recently, but I wanted to share this with you guys. There’s a link to a great article about Pagan publishers and how they will be affected by the closing of Borders Books, plus a link to donate to SageWoman magazine, which has been around for a long time and is an excellent magazine for people like us.

25 YEARS IN PRINT –
AND WE NEED YOUR HELP
This September marks SageWoman's 25th year of connecting us to the Goddess and to one another.
As a current SageWoman subscriber, I appreciate your generous support — which for all these years has made publishing SageWoman possible.
This anniversary also comes at the time of serious crisis. Borders — a major retail bookstore chain which sold 40% of our wholesale copies in the U.S. — has gone bankrupt and is closing all of its stores. What this means to Pagan publishers is covered by Jason Pitzl-Waters but the bottom line is this: Borders owes us $12,064 for sales in 2010 and 2011 for which we will never be paid.
To address this temporary, one-time crisis, we are turning to our readers for support. You can help us bounce back and be stronger than ever!
Here's how to help:
Donate to our rebound fund. (Donate Here) or if you prefer, send donations via PayPal to abc1@... . This is the single most useful thing you can do to help. Your gift will help us put the immediate crisis of the Borders collapse behind us. We've got lots of donation levels to choose from, and helpful thank-you gifts, too!
Times are tough, but I know that together we can help keep SageWoman bounce back from this temporary crisis and move confidently ahead into the future of serving the Goddess community for another 25 years.
Thank you for your generous support.
Anne Newkirk Niven
Editor, SageWoman Magazine
