Now YOU can invest in the SUN's future...
... by adopting a bouncing baby COINBOX!!
Boxes like this one have greatly expanded the Sun's distribution network in recent months. They enable us to reach more people and increase the SUN's income flow, which means we have more money for additional pages, staff and a better newspaper.
Coinboxes pay for themselves in a few months through increased sales. Right now the SUN is out to buy 30 more of these handy machines, which cost $90 apiece. Every box we now have was purchased with short-term loans from supporters in the community. All those who've lent us money for these items so far have been paid back in full, or are in the process of being paid back.
You can help you achieve our goal if you have a spare $90 in the bank. Loan it to us for ten months, and get back $100 on your investment. We can negotiate terms to include monthly payment plans for sums larger than $90.
Most newspapers start out with a three or four year supply of capital to help weather losses and build up mass distribution. The SUN, however, was started with nothing more than several people's determination that an alternative media was needed in southeastern Michigan. The paper is doing better now than ever before, but we need investment capital to help secure and expand our operation.
If you are able to willing to support the SUN by lending us money for one or more coinboxes, contract David Fenton or Dianne Ripley at 761-7148.
