Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm the creator and Editor in Chief of a bimonthly digital magazine called Holl & Lane.  I created this magazine out of a need to see real life in our perfectly posed world.  The heart of the magazine is about telling real life stories, the kind that don't often get told, that don't get a voice, and the kind that really need to be heard.  The focus is to help others feel less alone.  We want you to read the magazine and be able to say "me, too".

The magazine was launched in June 2015 and since then we have shared beautiful, heartbreaking and inspiring stories on personal triumph and overcoming tragedies.  We've told stories on missing mothers, PTSD, suicide, depression, miscarriage, postpartum depression, domestic violence, teenage pregnancy, cultural identity, and addiction.  And we have so much more to say.

And this is where you come in.  I need your help to continue to tell these stories that are so important.  To allow us to continue running the magazine and the blog, to let us continue to be an outlet for those who really need it.  In the coming months the magazine will undergo a transition that will bring the focus even more to our mission- to create beautiful conversations.

The money raised will be used to pay off all of the behind the scenes bills that it takes to run the magazine.  In addition, we want to begin offering print subscriptions to our loyal subscribers and money raised will help us do just that!  I also want to be able to compensate the team that has worked tirelessly in their free time (for free!) to make this magazine a success.

It cannot be overstated how much any donations will be appreciated.  Creating a magazine has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and to see it coming to life has been one of the most monumental moments of my life.  To receive your support and help us keep going would mean the world to the entire H&L Family.

Please feel free to read more about us on our website as well as view any of our current issues:  www.hollandlanemag.com

Thank you,
Sarah Hartley,
Editor in Chief

It's now 2017 and we've published 5 printed copies and each time we're printing more and more. I'm so thrilled with the organic growth that we've seen. Friends tell friends who tell friends who tell friends and pretty soon we have new subscribers.

But a magazine sales only account for so much. Every single penny I receive from sales goes right back into the magazine as that's the nature of a print publication. So in the meantime, we're searching for advertisers to help keep us going. Your generous donations are always welcome and so appreciated. Thank you for your support and love!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU - from the bottom of my heart for helping me make my dreams come true and for giving others a voice.

Today we hit $1000! I can't tell you what your support has meant to me. I have officially gotten the magazine out of debt and am now saving to get issues printed to sell in local boutiques.

For reference, printing 100 issues costs about $1800 so we're still trying to get there in the hopes we can bring our subscribers the printed issues they want and get the boutiques the issues to sell.

So any little bit helps, and sharing is so appreciated!

Just a few of the wonderful notes that we've gotten from readers of Holl & Lane:

- This new issue came at the perfect time. I lost a close friend and coworker to suicide 4 weeks ago yesterday. As I finished the article on addiction yesterday I thought "I wish they'd do an article on suicide". I flipped the page and there it was. Weird huh?? Anyway, Shaun sounds exactly like my friend. Always thinking of others, making you laugh, would give you the shirt off her back, you name it, she'd do it for you. The organization that Shaun's family put together sounds great and I'm definitely going to look it up. Everyone is alway so hush hush about suicide and it's so hard for those left behind. So I just wanted to say a huge thank you for shining a light on a subject that affects more people than we realize. - Kristin

- I wouldn't have [shared my story on my failed suicide attempt] without you so give yourself a big high five. You have no idea how many folks have come up to me to share their own experiences. We did a good thing! - Emily

- I love the story of your magazine! Honest, raw, real stories are what we need in our shiny, pinterest-perfect world! No one wants to talk about how they feel less than, or even comment publicly how they feel the same way. - Kate

We are doing GOOD things with Holl & Lane. We are helping to start a real conversation. And we want to be able to keep that going. So THANK YOU for helping us do just that. You are helping us get this magazine to the people who truly need it.
