One person can make a difference. That’s the message of Information Press, a free monthly magazine serving the California central coast since August 1991 and now the world thanks to the web. It may close soon due to owner's poor health and low ad sales. More ...

Driven with the passion to make people aware of the personal power they have to take charge of their life, Sandra Marshall has worked on a shoe string of a budget and volunteered her own time, energy and money to publish each issue of Information Press for the last 24 years. Filled with articles that raise awareness, educate, encourage, and inspire, the goal of each issue is to support the reader in taking action to create the world they would like to see.

Independently owned, Information Press is obliged to no one but its readers. Articles in each issue, and those posted on the website during the month, offer another side of the news, tell stories of hope, provide educational content, and valuable announcements to keep people informed, united, and empowered. IP proudly supports alternative choices, the 99%, and co-sponsors community and national events that support the well being of local communities and the planet.

Now Information Press faces a major crossroad. Like many newspapers it has hit hard times. Ad sales are down, Its private funding has run out and Marshall's health needs immediate attention. To continue to operate in 2015 Information Press must ask for public support while we reorganize and rebuild. 

Here's THE PLAN:  Currently 10,000 copies of Information Press are printed each month. If each reader donated $10 we would meet our annual budget and be able to continue to support the good of the whole by publishing. 

The public response to our call in December brought in $1,250 from 38 supporters. That combined with our advertisers was just enough to cover the cost to print the January 2015 issue.  

Now we face the challenge of raising $5,000 per month to cover all operating cost: office, staff, printing and distribution.   You can help with a donation of $10  or more.  We also offer perks for businesses, groups or individuals who would like to be included in the next issue.

The due date for the February issue is January 23.  Our survival depends on public support.
