DUDE MAGAZINE began with $1000 of funding from the {also} Foundation. We were able to print 500 copies of the very 1st version of issue #1, which we distributed for FREE. We still distribute hundreds of copies for FREE throughout community organisations and medical centres and we are proud to do this and very grateful to everyone who has supported DUDE. We also sell many copies, which helps us to remain sustainable. This is how we grew and below are the figures, which show where the money has gone to date. We want to remain transparent and it took a while to publish these figures, but that is because I have been so incredibly busy, so thanks for your patience and support. This project has been built on trust and by being transparent with regard to finances we hope it reinforces the value in the efforts of everyone involved.

I also want to say a huge thank you to some core people who have been an integral part of the development of DUDE.  Max Attitude, Elwyn Murray, Ash Danger and Teddy Cook.

Massive respect to the contributors for all your creative energy and courage.

And huge thanks to everyone else for all your encouragement, support, positivity and community spirit.
