My dad was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer. I don’t live close enough to home to be much practical help but I thought that something I can do is create a new zine (or series of zines) and donate any profits from sales to a related charity (most likely MacMillan Cancer Support).
I’ve chosen a theme that I know my dad will appreciate – birds. He’s especially fond of swans, owls, birds of prey, and was born in the Year of the Rooster; but he’s not that picky, and all birds are welcome for this project!
I am calling out for one or more of the following:
- Used postage stamps featuring images of birds
- Faux postage/artistamps (hand-drawn, hand-painted, handmade or handcrafted in any way) featuring images of birds
By sending postage stamps or faux postage for this project, you agree to the item/s you send being printed in a zine (and/or possibly used in other related craft items) that will be sold by TangleCrafts in aid of a cancer charity.
I will wait to see what arrives before I decide exactly what form the zine(/s) will take. I can’t promise to include everything that I receive in the finished zine but will try to make use of all that I reasonably can! Everyone who includes a return address with their contribution will receive a free copy of the resulting mini-zine (but let me know if you prefer your copy to be donated for sale).
