Molly has received the following appeal from Turning the Tide Books in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for support of their sister organization Rock the Boat Books in Regina. Seems that this infoshop start-up has run into difficulties ie a theft. Help them out if you can.
Dear Friends,
Rock the Boat Books (Regina’s sister organization to Turning the Tide) was the victim of a most unfortunate turn of events recently. The book project which operates only in a book-tabling capacity and has no store front, had their storage space broken into and the money in their cash box stolen. The amount of money that was stolen was significant and enough to set back the fledgling book project in their efforts in establishing themselves and move towards opening a store.
As many of you recognize the need for alternative voices and viewpoints in the world of books and media, I am asking you to consider supporting this important progressive book project in getting back on its feet. To that end, Turning the Tide will be accepting donations in the form of cash or cheque in the Saskatoon area for Rock the Boat. Donations can be dropped off or mailed to the address below. Please make the cheques out to Rock the Boat Books.
If you are outside the Saskatoon area, please send cheques directly to:
Rock the Boat
2138 McIntyre Street
Regina, SK
S4P 2R7
Thank you for your consideration.
In solidarity,
Peter Garden
