Halloween Fundraiser!

Cover of the Halloween Zine (English)

The six-year-old and I are running a fundraiser to help immigrants to the United States. If you email me (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com) a donation receipt - of any amount - to RAICES, I will send you the PDFs for his original Halloween zine in the language(s) of your choosing: English, Arabic, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Persian or Spanish. I'll also send you instructions on how to fold the paper into a zine.

We are missing our friends currently stalled in India (read more about them here in the Washington Post). We are feeling how our nation has been changing these last few years. This multi-language book project and fundraiser does its own tiny part in bridging the gap between cultures and languages. We believe in the mission of RAICES and hope to support their work through this project. 

The six-year-old is very interested in writing books. If you an adult with a kindergartener in the Washington, D.C., area and would like to make your own book together, you might be interested in taking the class that the six-year-old and I are co-teaching at the Writer's Center on Saturday, November 23. You can register through the Writer's Center directly here.


How to join this fundraiser: 


2. Email me your receipt (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com and list the language(s) of the zines that you' like emailed to you. Each zine is a single piece of paper that you can print out and then cut and fold according to the directions that I will also email to you.

3. Want to help some more? Can you translate the book into a language not listed above? Let me know and I will send you a blank version to fill in or you can email me the words. There are three sentences total, so it shouldn't be too hard. Thank you to the friends who have already helped with translations!
