Proceeds from The Football Crónicas will be donated to The Bottletop Foundation, 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).
Authors, translators and editors provided their services for free, and designers, copy editors, typesetters and proofreaders worked below market rates, in order to keep production costs to a minimum and donations to a maximum. Ragpicker Press thanks them for their time, energy and generosity.
Ragpicker Press coordinated a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to produce the book. http://www.sponsume.com/project/football-cr%C3%B3nicas
