In France, we begin the launch of this paper called "Un petit sourire" (see the video above).It's a funny magazine, in which is presented the life and the hopes of a man (or a woman) that lives on the streets. So this person becomes ALIVE and can be helped through a few little jobs...
We will lauch the french edition in september. However, we also hope to establish it in other languages.
We aim to be ready this autumn.
If you wish to help people around you : do you have a computer, a printer ? Maybe a photocopier ?
Then you have then everything to start with "A little smile".
What are the funds for?
To pay the team that makes the mock-up and the editorial and cartoons research. Initially, with Ulule, we were seeking to create a network at "human scale", that is 30 partners who create their own association. We added some less demanding rewards, but you still can start your own nonprofit distributing the magazine - we'll send you all the material and status for your nonprofit at 99 euros.
About the project owner
We're a tiny publishing company located in Toulouse, which edits a scientific journal: "effervescience". The little smile, we want it to be edited by others, as much as possible by real people with real problems... So why not you?
You will receive a dedicated # of "Un petit sourire", but we wish to provide you with some scientific culture too...
We are also the editors of a scientific newspaper named "effervesciences"... And for 15 euros, you will receive it next year ( the real price, for 6 issues, is 17,50 euros ...).
Of course we put these 15 euros in the right pocket , for helping the "Petit sourire" project.
Want to know more about effervesciences?
For 25 euros, one dedicated # of "un petit sourire", the next 6 issues of Effervesciences, and yet more: 10 issues of this scientific paper (real value: 27 euros), that you can choose from this list:
Here, for 99 euros, we need your help; not only from your wallet, but by joining the "Petit sourire" network and launch this street paper by yourself in your own town.
We will prepare for you the templates for the next two issues of the paper.
Do you have a computer, and a printer to print the texts? Maybe a copier too?
Then you can begin this social job in a few days, and maybe earn extra money with the adds inside the paper.
Maybe you just want to "push" a paper, with someone else to do the job ?
Just send 99 euros and tell us : i want to push "un petit sourire" in this town, and we keep the money for such a volunteer...
Anyhow, this is a big challenge for us, for you, and for all these street people that we are going to help.
So, what do you decide?
