Hi Tigress Girls,
Remember a year ago today? We do. It was the day of the Tigress launch. Yep. Crazy, right? It’s been a year!! Happy birthday to us!!
We wouldn’t be here without you. In the past year, we’ve gotten hundreds of submissions from girls, women, boys and men from across the world. In our first year, we’ve interviewed over 60 Tigress Girls and Amazing babes, featured over 100 artists, and shared articles on armpit hair, being nude, the benefits of having haters, mean girls, sex-ed, body image and self healing through pursuing passions.
Today, in addition to celebrating our first birthday and sharing our new website design, we’re thrilled to be launching our first-ever crowdfunding campaign for TIGRESS MAGAZINE VOLUME ONE, in PRINT! We’ll be celebrating all week with extra special new posts every day, so stay tuned. Please visit our Pozible crowdfunding site and consider donating to help us get the first print edition of Tigress off the ground. You can read all about the need for funds and the fabulous rewards you can receive on the page.
Here’s to another fabulous year of Tigress!! We hope you’ll stick with us for the next steps in our journey. Onward and upward!
With endless love and gratitude,
Freya & Sophie
