Several months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy Gruver, founder of New Moon, a magazine aimed at girls ages 8 to 12. New Moon is great – they're ad free, have girl editors and writers. They have a girl blog. Oh, and they're also based in Minnesota.
Today in my inbox was a message from Nancy sharing the news that on September 1, they'll be launching New Moon Girls web community – like the magazine, it'll be ad free, girl-driven content. In the meantime, they're trying to raise money.
Help them out, won't you? It's a rare thing to find media aimed at building up girls' self-esteem rather than tearing it down.
Here are a few easy things you can do:
- Purchase an annual subscription – 6 issues of New Moon Girls magazine – for a girl (or girls) you love.
- Purchase an annual subscription of New Moon Girls magazine for your local library or school in your name
- Purchase an annual subscription of New Moon Girls magazine as a gift for a girls' organization in your community such as your local Girl Scout troop, YWCA, or Women's Shelter
You can do that by going here.
And please, spread the word!
