I'M A BIT LATE BLOGGING THIS, but there's still time to take advantage of a very generous offer that gets you good stuff while helping human and animal victims of Hurricane Katrina. This week, S.W.A.T. magazine is donating all income from its online store to the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and the American Humane Association (or other suitable animal welfare group). Not just the profits, but the entire sum.
At the S.W.A.T. store you can get new subscriptions, subscription renewals, and back issues of the magazine in either paper or .pdf. Thinking of subscribing? S.W.A.T. is going from nine issues (currently) to a full 12 issues next year, so the subscription is a very good deal.
Hm. This is a good time of year to start thinking about gift subscriptions, too.
And just think, you (or your gift recipient) will get to read my (and Richard W. Stevens') "Enemy at the Gate" column every month. Interested? then read on for the rest of Rich Lucibella's offer.
For Immediate Release:
None of us need to be reminded about the devastation to the Gulf States from Hurricane Katrina. As a company, S.W.A.T. Magazine is dedicated to doing its part to ease the suffering of our friends and neighbors there.
