We hope you had a wonderful Holiday.
It’s hard to believe that we are about to enter the final month of 2012. As we are quickly moving toward a New Year we wanted to share some special updates for PREPARE Magazine – and also give you a status report on our anticipated hard-copy release. There is a special announcement that will specifically benefit you – so be sure to read all the way through this email.
In this email, we share important information on:
… Next Issue Release
… Updates to your Subscription
… Campaign for our Official Launch (Hard-Copy Release)
It has been a very busy (and exciting) time for us and we want to share some of the things that have been happening. We have been slightly overwhelmed with a steady flow of changes and preparations for our hard-copy publication. We continue to work-out the bugs. Please accept our apology as we have been remiss in keeping you fully updated on everything – as we have been inundated with new challenges that we were not anticipating.
But… we forge ahead because we STRONGLY believe in the mission and purpose of PREPARE Magazine. We are encouraged by the support we have received from our subscribers and advertisers and are determined to make this magazine a world-class publication. We hope you find value in our magazine and will help support us as we continue to build a stronger foundation to build on.
OUR NEXT ISSUE (Released Soon!)
In January, 2013, we are planning to Officially launch PREPARE Magazine, and release the hard-copy version of the magazine. We’ve had quite a few requests for a print version, and we are looking forward to releasing it with our launch. It has been quite an undertaking but we believe it will be well worth the effort.
We will give more details as we move closer to the launch, but here is a general description:
The hard-copy version will be a bi-monthly full-color publication that will be available by subscription (delivered by USPS). The print publication will be a little larger than the monthly digital version (likely around 44 pages) and will contain unique articles and features.
CAMPAIGN for our OFFICIAL LAUNCH!
But… because of the costs associated with the thousands who have subscribed, and the expenses we will have with launching the print version, we have launched a fund-raising campaign to help raise needed funds toward the launch of PREPARE Magazine.
We intend for PREPARE Magazine to be a long-term relevant voice in the Preparedness Community. To make that happen and to create a world-class publication, we need to raise funds. To encourage people to join with us, we are giving away some really cool and valuable rewards. Of course, we would love to have your help. Please visit our campaign site and consider helping us if you are able. We will be extremely grateful for any help you can offer.

Again, we want to thank you for joining with us and for being a special member of our Community. We are very grateful for your participation and encourage you to share suggestions and ideas that you feel will help us improve especially as we move into the New Year – and the “official” Launch of PREPARE Magazine.
We look forward to sharing together soon!
Until then, we remain…
Yours in Service,
Encouraging, Empowering and Enriching Your Journey!
