The Football Crónicas launched one year ago. Sales have been impressive and we're pleased to announce that we've covered our costs and been able to make a £1,000 donation to The Bottletop Foundation. Ragpicker Press director Jethro Soutar met Bottletop director Oliver Wayman earlier this month to present the foundation with a cheque. Oliver was thrilled with the contribution, stressing how far £1,000 stretches when used on the ground on projects.
The Bottletop Foundation is a UK-based organisation that does outstanding work empowering young people in Africa and Brazil, tackling sensitive issues including the prevention of HIV/Aids, unplanned teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, gender inequality, low self-esteem and vocational-skills deficits (http://bottletop.org/pages/foundation). Ragpicker Press is proud to support The Bottletop Foundation and hopes to be able to make a similar donation next year.
