About this project

Celestial Shine Magazine (TM) is a modest fashion magazine designed to provide young women with an uplifting alternative to most magazines on the newsstands.

We have developed a quality product that includes modest fashion and style, hair, makeup, dating, spiritual, real life, and guest blogger articles that are designed to uplift Young Women and help them come closer to Christ and glorify Him in their daily lives and trials. We also provide an affordable place for small businesses with uplifting products to advertise. We love getting these products into the hands of the girls who really want/need them.

We have created 4 printed and digital issues in 2015 and would like to continue to print and send out these magazines but are struggling to get the word out there and obtain subscriptions to continue producing quality photo shoots and content! We have some great topics, cover stories, and guest writers coming in the future issues!

 Please help this magazine to continue moving forward by donating, receiving a subscription, and sharing this magazine with others. Your donations will go towards future printings of the magazine, photo shoots, quality articles, and advertising to spread the word to Young Women around the world about this magazine!

Risks and challenges

A challenge that we are facing is getting the magazine out in the public (and into the hands of the girls that really want/need it) in order to bring in subscribers and advertisers enough to fully fund the magazine and keep it running. But with the funds we hope to receive from this project, we will be creating an ad campaign to spread the word and help the magazine to become fully self-sustaining. We are attempting to pinpoint the best ways to advertise that will be the most effective.
