Hi! Thank you so much for taking time to read our story! It means the world to us <33
Who We Are:
The Cliche Teen Journal is an online magazine that accepts submissions from teens all around the world and puts their art & writing into issues for publication. Additionally, the Cliche Teen Journal interviews as many teens as they can, offers opportunities through other organizations, and strives to accomplish their mission.
CTJs mission is to embrace all teens with open arms, helping them rise to their full potential and prove teens can do anything adults can. We want to break the common cliche stereotype that says teens "are too young", "are lazy and too addicted to their phones", "just don't understand it". We have interviewed various teens all providing that teens are not at all that cliche stereotype. From activists, to musicians, to drag queens, to influencers, every teen interviewed by CTJ (and future teens) constantly prove that there is more to teens than being useless, hormonal, & naive adolescences.
Why We are Asking for Donations:
As dedicated as our team and community is, we do not make any profits out of this magazine.
We are asking for donations because... we are hoping to buy our own domain and connect it through our wix subscription so we can further expand our Cliche Teen community. We want to spread the word about CTJ by optimizing our website and google search engines (but first we really need our own domain, not registered under wix or weebly). Subscription for managing our site and connecting a domain is $250/year and domains are $15/yr. As a teen journal that gains no profit, it's difficult for us to pull out that money. Which is why your donation will matter to us so much!
We are asking for donations because... we need to create print issues since everything is currently online. We want our teen contributors to be able to hold their published work in their own hands and fill their hearts with satisfaction that they contributed their work to a community that appreciates their passion and dedication to their creative outlet. We need some funding to get it started!
We are asking for donations because... we want to offer mentorship programs for teens who want an internal look at adults in their dream professions and ability to ask for advice. And so many more programs!
We will be incredibly grateful for your donations and as a thanks, we are going to create several posts & add a portion to our site and magazine where we will thank all our donors (names of donors will be added).
Thank you so much for all of your help! We would love it if you could forward this GoFundMe page to all your friends and family to help spread the word about the Cliche Teen Journal <33
