You heard right: Tu Publishing is looking to the public to raise money for its launch. If it doesn't raise $10,000 in pledges by December 14, it sadly won't get started. So together, we can make it happen!
Visit Tu Publishing for more information on the goals and vision for the company, and lots of insightful commentary by multicultural authors. For example, Cynthia Leitich Smith has an essay about living in a multicultural world, and Cindy Pon talks about her book Silver Pheonix.
From there, you can reach the donation site, or jump directly to the Kickstarter site, where you can safely pledge any amount to the cause. Money only exchanges hands if the $10,000 goal is met, so there is no risk. And with your donation, you could secure yourself some nifty gifts.
