DEAR FRIENDS, IT’S A THRILL TO TAKE OUR NEXT BIG LEAP WITH YOU. LAIKA Magazine has been a community-centered endeavor from the very beginning. Every story idea, every photo shoot, each issue of our magazine has been about bringing people together in an effort to merge creativity with compassion. As an independent magazine, crowd-funding was always a part of our vision. After releasing four issues, and watching our magazine become embraced by people from many different backgrounds, we felt ready for a daring step forward! So on December 11th, we launched our very first Kickstarter campaign to help us go mainstream: kck.st/1zV5xbn
With this campaign, we want to take LAIKA to the next level. We want to keep bringing you the dynamic, thought-provoking content we’ve become known for — and even more of it! We want our magazine to be available in more places, to more people. One of our goals is to diversify our media. We are dreaming up a beautiful smartphone-compatible version of LAIKA, as well as a cutting-edge app that will be a mobile lifestyle companion for the modern vegan and the veg-curious. In short, we want LAIKA to become the first truly mainstream vegan publication! And with your help, we know it’s all possible. The campaign runs for 30 days and concludes on January 10th, 2015.
Our campaign has been selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick, has been covered by outlets like Ecorazzi and The Discerning Brute, and your incredible support has made its momentum possible. We have some amazing rewards as part of our Kickstarter, including an exclusive t-shirt collaboration with Herbivore Clothing, photo prints of animal images from our magazine, unique experiences like attending workshops and photo shoots, and so much more! We are so excited about everything that’s coming up for LAIKA, and can’t wait to showcase to the world how exciting, rewarding, and beautiful a vegan lifestyle really is. Your support will help us reach our goals.
Thank you so much for joining us in our compassionate mission. It is a privilege to have you along on this journey.
