Off The Block: Grenfell Issue

I am creating a magazine called Off The Block, in memory of the victims of the Grenfell Fire, which killed over 70 people last June. The magazine serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it reflects on the event, and explores the subsequent reactions to the fire (both governmental and community). It simultaneously celebrates London: its boldness, diversity, creativity, and unwillingness to be labelled and boxed in. The magazine is grounded in lifestyle; it includes over 200 pages of opinion, music, fashion, literature, poetry, photography, art, and more. We hope that our content will inspire discussion, meditation and change, and will allow our readers to look at both Grenfell, London, and wider issues affecting British youth in a new light. For a small preview, please visit http://www.offtheblockmagazine.com/ .

All profits from the magazine will go to a Grenfell-related charity.

As we are a non-profit magazine, we are relying on donations in order to help us achieve a substantial profit while also being able to cover production and distribution costs. We have been quoted £2000 to cover this, and are working on various fundraising methods to achieve this goal.

We would be extremely grateful for any contribution that you might put towards this endeavour. Both in its charitable nature and its content, our goal is for this magazine to have a genuine effect, and we would be unbelievably thankful for any help you could give us in achieving this.

Thank you so much,

Francesco
