We are pleased to announce that Alaska Humanity News will be completing its first year and entering 2006 prepared to explore new dimensions of transformative news. In order to simplify our operations and maintain sustainability we will be publishing every other month, for the time being, beginning with this issue.
Contribute your own news
Starting February we will be providing space for citizen journalists to contribute their own news. If you resonate with our vision of meaningful news, send us stories on any Alaskan topic that interests you.
Please review our essays on the meaning of news at our website, http://www.humanitynews.net(go to the links at Our Vision). Submissions should be 500 words or less.
Our Advertising Representative Bob Lord died October 17 at the age of 62. Bob was involved in this paper from the beginning and was instrumental in giving Alaska Humanity News a running start. He made this commitment partly in order to be of service to a project he believed in.
Core supporters of Alaska Humanity News
We are continuing to sell display and classified ads (a rate card can be found on our website), but we are developing a new model to support this paper: one in which co-participants make a mutual commitment to support each other and our work in making a better world.
We are seeking individuals and businesses who want to be an integral part of this enterprise. Businesses contribute $30 per issue ($180 for the year) and can submit a business card size ad in each edition; individuals will contribute $50 per year and be entitled to other benefits. See our website for details, or contact us via phone or email.
Seeking Co-Creators of Alaska Humanity News
Alaska Humanity News is seeking persons to help guide and create this paper–to maintain, develop, improve, innovate, and produce it. Do you resonate with our vision and want to volunteer their time and energy to bring new life and momentum to it?
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to take an active, creative role in this unique endeavor. If you are interested please explore our website humanitynews.net, and contact us.
Opportunity: “Compassionate Businesses”
A stipend of $500 – $1,000 is available for someone to help develop a program to bring together thoughtful, caring, meaningful Alaskan businesses and customers. The program could involve alternative currencies, punch cards, publications and other means of supporting economics with a human face. For details see our website http://huzanity.org/Projects/Elemental%20Society/Economics.htm, or contact us via phone or email.
