How to sell your story for charity to help others …
People don’t always want to sell their story simply to make some money (although I will always negotiate a fee for you regardless of whether you ask for the money or not!). For some people it is just as important, if not more, to tell their story to raise awareness and let others going through the same experience realise they’re not alone.
For me, helping people gain publicity is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable aspects of running Feature World. I welcome enquiries from charities or people raising awareness for charity and will be able to explain all the options available to you.
Newspapers and magazines are often happy to give bona-fide charities a mention as part of an informative feature. If you are selling a story for charity the payment is still the same – so if you have a particularly strong story that many magazines and newspapers want, you could still receive thousands for it. Some people decide to keep their payment or they may donate part or all of their fee to their chosen charity.
