Today we spent 7 hours nonstop work on the calendar. It's almost finished and will go to print next week.
We also breainstormed how to distribute it. Here are our ideas so far:
- We emailed German vegan online stores and asked them if they want to buy (small profit for us to donate) and re-sell it (small profit for them).
- We will email animal rights groups and vegan organizations. We will sell the calendar cheaper to them (at production cost) and they will be allowed to keep the profit of the re-selling.
- We will go to shops, health stores etc. in the area and ask if they want to sell the calendar.
- We will encourage vegans to buy several copies not only for presents, but also for re-selling.
You all could buy some copies to distribute to your local AR groups. It's winning on all sides: we can sell more copies and cover our expenses, the AR groups can keep the profit they make and the vegan message is being spread.
I sure hope you all will buy dozens to distribute among your friends and family
The smallest number i have to let print is 500 copies, that would cost me around 4'200$! The more i let print, the cheaper each copy gets, but of course the total gets more. So, i count on you to help me not ruining myself!
Thank you all for your enthusiasm and commitment, it's truly a great vegan joint project
Love and peace,
No one said it would be easy.
