In the last post we hinted at a friendly incentive for spreading the word about:
1: the national issue of child sex trafficking
2: Door to Grace who has a goal to Restore Life to Rescued Children
3: our zine project fundraiser which thanks you for donating ($10 or more) to Door To Grace.
—–We are going to more than hint at it in this post.—-
Please help us spread the word about TalyaWren: A Zine Project (and this drawing) and in return,
we will enter you in our zine theme-oriented drawing for:
a Moleskine Passions: Music Journal,
a $10 iTunes card,
a composition book (likely old school Mead)
Enter the drawing by Friday June 1, 2012 by 12 midnight mountain time zone
we will contact the winner & announce them here on Monday June 4, 2012.
How to enter the drawing:
TalyaWren does not have other accounts, but L at her book/film blog “omphaloskepsis” does.
[+1] twitter or retweet w/ the hashtag: #talyawrenzineproject (L is: omphaloskepsisL)
[+1] share on facebook (L’s blog fb page)
[+1] share it on a blog (comment here w/ link)
[+1] tumblr (L’s when not lazy tumblr page)
[+1] any other way that can be verified w/ links.
each [+1] equals an entry.
If you worry I’ll miss you, comment with all the ways in which you shared.
above is a page tab: “letter, buttons, misc.” where images and text can be found.
Those who know L, know being short-winded is an effort (except in stairwells and the like),
but she made this effort for a usable blurb? :
An estimated 100,000 U.S. children are commercially exploited sexually each year. The average age for children (female and male) entering into prostitution and pornography is 12-14, plenty are younger. Sex trafficking is no respecter of home-life, geographic location, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.
Door To Grace is a Portland, Oregon-based movement whose mission is to “restore life to rescued children.” Please visit their site—DoorToGrace.org—for further literature on what compels them and how they are responding to the needs of child survivors, like providing a holistic approach to their care.
TalyaWren: A Zine Project has created a humble but wonderful zine-sized thank-you card for those who have helped contributed to the zine artistically and/or monetarily. TalyaWren would love to share a zine with those who are moved to help them help Door To Grace (w/ $10+) donations. See the “raising funds” page on their site—talyawren.wordpress.com—for how you can give and receive. You may also visit the site for further information on the zine project and Door To Grace.
Thank you so much for participating in this art project/fundraiser with us.
Stay tuned for a book/journal “Give-Away” next week!
