Help support Small Press Distribution by buying chapbooks (it’s a win-win)

This week, when we saw the call for funds to support Small Press Distribution (SPD), it was easy to jump into action mode: we immediately pledged 100% of our sales–through this Saturday, 4/25–to this GoFundMe fundraiser:

Thanks to our dear readers and supporters, we (you!) have already raised just over $150 in support of SPD. 

You get the chapbooks you want (check out our Pair-ups for great limited-run deals) and together we help support small presses. Win-win. Thank you so much!

update, 4/26/2020: Together we raised $225 for this fundraiser, not counting the folks who let us know they’d made direct contributions to SPD. Readers rock! Thank you all so much.

Give Ten

You may know that, as of last November 8, I dedicated 10% of all Seven Kitchens Press sales to be donated back to a worthwhile cause. Our first recipients were the Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. Most recently, donations have been in the form of needed supplies for other small and micro presses. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we will be donating ten percent of all sales received in the months of September and October to the Houston Food Bank.

Please do what you can, in any way you can, to reach out to folks in need.

Update: As of September 18, the amount set aside for the Houston Food Bank is $29.58 and counting. Thank you all.
