When bad things happen to good magazines…

January 16, 2008

Earlier today I received an e-mail from the folks at Need magazine, one of the magazines selected by me for min magazine as one of the 15 hottest launches of last year. The Need offices have been robbed and all their stuff has been stolen. Stephanie Kinnunen, Need’s CEO and C0-founder ends her mail on a positive note: spread hope. Here is her entire e-mail:

I have some unfortunate news to share with you. Over the weekend NEED magazine’s office was burglarized. All of our equipment was stolen, including multiple computers, printers, phones and even the power strips and desk lamps. The damage also includes a destroyed alarm system, cabinets broken and the phone lines cut. The incident has left us with scarce office resources until the claim goes through our insurance company. This will delay communications and production, although we will work to get things back on schedule as soon as possible. The loss of equipment has hurt us, but we will bounce back from this. I would like to thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and continued support.
Spread Hope,
Stephanie Kinnunen
