“Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder” (Rumi)

I didn’t come up with the equation: Giving = Loving.*  But I most certainly subscribe to it, as you can probably tell. And I bet you do too. So, if you value this labor of love; if you appreciate the nourishment and companionship you find in our pages; if you treasure the short literature we curate and send your way, and if you want to insure that we’ll be here next year and the next and the next—please love us back. Subscribe or renew your subscription. Give a gift subscription. Purchase some back issues. And, very importantly, lend your financial support–if you are able–in any amount whatsoever. It all matters. These are book-banning, voice-silencing, history-revising, difference-shaming times. Patronizing the literary arts has never been more important. Please do what you can.

Here are some options:

1. Buy us a $5 cup of coffee (or two, or more)– click here or click on the Thanks a Latté image in the home page sidebar.

2. Sponsor an issue of Stone Gathering, Too or Throwback Bay.

Individual Sponsorships are $50 and can include mention in the relevant issue or remain anonymous—your choice.

Small Business Sponsorships are $75 and include mention in the relevant issue, a mini-profile on the website, AND a free 2 x 2 ad in our Holiday ad insert.

Visit our sponsorship profile page to learn about Midwest Family Eye, Not Amy’s Farm, and Scout & Morgan Books, our small business sponsors for the inaugural issue of Stone Gathering, Too.

3. Write us a check for any amount, made out to DDL and sent to: Danielle Dufy Literary, PO Box 334, Brainerd, MN 56401

Thank you for considering these things. You know I treasure your support. Deborah

*The first time I saw the loving=giving formula was when Maria Paplova, the creator of  Brain Pickings (now The Marginalian) used it to encourage readers who loved her work to love her back by giving. It’s, since, been picked up fairly widely, including by Krista Tippett at On Being.
