The biggest expenditure
at Kahani is printing the actual magazine. Using four-color
process and good quality paper runs into the thousands
of dollars. Subscription money barely covers our operating
costs. But that is true for all magazines. So, in order
to cover their operating costs, most magazines publish
ads in their periodicals.
At Kahani, we believe children don’t need any more
advertising in their lives. Studies show that advertising
targeted at children is estimated at a staggering $15
billion annually – that’s 2.5 times what
it was in 1992. In a single year, the average American
child is exposed to 40,000 television commercials. That’s
over 100 a day!
But we are committed to keeping Kahani ad-free. And we
need your help to do that.
We’d like to thank the following families for sponsoring
Kahani. That is, they paid for the actual printing cost
of the magazine they underwrote:
Project IMPACT– Spring
2008– Rock the Vote
Deepika and Dr. Sanjay Prasad of Maryland – Spring
2006 – Magic!
Rita and Mukesh Patel of California – Summer 2006 – Summer
Won’t you consider underwriting an issue? Please
drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.We
acknowledge every sponsor with a ‘family ad’ in
the inside back cover of the magazine they underwrite.
Want to help, but can’t do it by yourself? Get
a group of families together!
