Inspire others by giving the gift of reading. Build bridges of understanding in your community. But above all, remember that learning can be engaging while being informative!
Mindworks Publishing is an independent publishing company dedicated to producing and promoting books that are uplifting and informative for children and adults. The mainstream media seems to be filled with stories of tragedy and heart-ache – but what about the joy and triumph that also exists in our world? Mindworks Publishing seeks to spread joy and accurate information about Islam through books while supporting aspiring authors and creative minds in the pursuit of their writing goals. Their motto is: truth breeds knowledge; knowledge creates unity; unity builds community; community yields Islam.
You can help to support their endeavors by spreading the word about the launchgood.com campaign that they have created for raising funds. Launchgood.com is a crowdfunding platform for raising money through donations and Mindworks is hoping to raise $4,000 for propelling the small company to the next phase of production, and to purchase surplus copies of their published books for sending to contributors, mosques, schools, libraries and interfaith organizations.
If you can help in any way, whether that be with prayers, sharing the project with others, or by donating a small or large amount to this cause, it will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.
Mindworks Publishing was established in October of 2006 with the intention of creating and bringing stories of faith and optimism to others while showcasing the beauty of Islam and supporting like-minded authors and writers in their publishing pursuits. Some of their titles are Hannah Habibi Learns About Modesty, The Beauty of My Hijab, and The Muslimah Speaks: Her Voice, Her Spirit poetry anthology.They have published a total of eight books through print-on-demand services, however, moving to the next level of marketing and promotion will require funding for increased printing and purchasing of surplus copies to distribute.
The Muslimah Speaks: Her Voice, Her Spirit (TMS), released in April of this year, is one of their bestsellers and is an anthology of poetry written by Muslim women from all corners of the world. TMS offers the varied perspectives of modern Muslim women and explores the topics of identity, family, faith, marriage, motherhood and personal aspirations, to name a few, while dispelling myths concerning the lack of a strong and knowledgeable female voice in Islam. Mindworks Publishing is also raising printing funds for supplying surplus copies of the TMS poetry anthology to be shared with its contributors. In addition, The Muslimah Speaks has been featured in the Arts and Lifestyle section of The National, Abu Dhabi Media’s first English-language newspaper, and Mindworks Publishing intends to begin work on volume two sometime next year.
Donors to the Launchgood campaign will receive complimentary copies of Mindworks’ publications in paperback format and all perks will be shipped at Mindworks’ expense.
