Valentines to support kids and families at the Allied Media Conference

The Kids, Caregivers and Community track is doing a fundraiser for kids' participation in the AMC. Donate and get a nice card for your sweetie.

Hello friends!

Wanna support kids and caregivers attending the AMC?

The Allied Media Conference (AMC) is a really special place in SO many ways, one of which is that there is a full schedule of activities for people ages 4-12 to learn media skills in a social justice context. And we're asking for your support to make it better than ever!

One way to show support is by purchasing our Community Valentines OR donate using paypal.

Every year we hear from parents who want to attend but can't, or who want to bring their kids but can't, due to travel/housing costs. Because we want to grow intergenerational movements that include parents and nurture young people, this year the Kids, Caregivers and Community track is raising money for kid's travel scholarships. The scholarships will prioritize the needs of queer, disabled, marginalized, low-income single mothers and children of color.

We are selling Valentines made by kids and families who come to the AMC, as well as some we designed ourselves. You can buy a physical Valentine to be mailed to you, or download a digital file to print yourself. Please check out our selection here.

*While a couple of the cards are Valentines-specific, we are trying to avoid the weird heteronormative conformity that often goes along with the holiday, and are instead selling cards that are for all the kinds of people we love - friends, parents, chosen family, caregivers - for valentines day, mother’s day, father’s day, and all the days in-between. We will be adding new cards and selling up until the AMC at the end of June.

Thanks so much for your support!
♥ China, Jake, Robin
