I'm starting a monthly subscription box called Joyful Reads. Joyful Reads is a subscription box committed to marginalized voices and books that reflect the world around us. I would like to open in May 2017. Our target demographic is teenagers and young adults who love Young Adult literature. Anyway, I made a GoFundMe because I need your help!
 
I need $2,000 to get started. With that money, I can pay for:
 
$860 - Website Designer
$200 - Shipping supplies (boxes, cushioning, tape)
$300 - Social Media Manager
 
I need $860 for a website designer. I could do it myself, but it wouldn't look nice. I want the website to look good and attract customers. Also, I need $200 for shipping supplies. Such as boxes, cushioning (the white crinkly paper) and tape. I want to ensure that I have enough supplies for the first few boxes. Lastly, I need a social media manager. I asked for $300 so that I could pay their salary for the first two months. A portion of the remaining money will go to fees for GoFundMe. The rest of the money will go into our bank account. It will be used for incidentals or whatever other issues may arise. For example, if the boxes don't sell, I can use some of that money to keep things afloat.
