After settling up the bill from the printer this week, Prism Comics is in some serious financial straits. We're still several thousand dollars in the red after printing our (lovely!) 2004 guide to LGBT comics, and if we don't turn our fiscal ship around in the next few months, the chances of doing another guide project this summer are not high.
How can you help?
PRISM COMICS 2004
We need people all over the country to promote our guide to their local LGBT bookshops, comics shops and alternative bookstores. If we can get a wave of new orders, that will help out a lot. We can set you up with sample copies of the book and help you find local stores to contact. Email me at email@example.com
to pitch in.
PRISM COMICS ONLINE STORE
If you need a place to do your holiday shopping, might I suggest the Prism Comics Online Store
? We've just added a little "100%" graphic that tells you which items have been donated outright, and whose sale helps Prism Comics the most.
If you know someone (or are
someone) who likes to do year-end charitable giving and wants to support LGBT folks working in the arts, may we suggest Prism Comics? Talk to your family, friends and coworkers... I asked my Mom! Donations to Prism Comics are tax-deductible since we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, which many donors look for.
LINK TO US
If you operate a website, make sure you've got a link to PrismComics.org on it! (There are some lovely banners here
.) If you're active on message boards, suggest us as a resource for LGBT comics news and to shop for queer comics. (Or if you know Rich Johnston and can get him to plug us in Lying in the Gutters
