Swell magazine project

Hi! We are Swell, a student magazine surrounding wellbeing, positivity and feel-good moments. 

Who are you?

We are Kingston MA Magazine students wanting to create a positive and friendly publication for students to wind down to during the stressful times at university.

Your story

We decided to create this magazine so that we can help students relax and be a help-in-hand for those who don't know where to start on their wellness journey.

It is an important topic for us as we all have been students before and understand the wants and needs of the student body. We think having a positive and encouraging publication will help students become more positive and confident in themselves, as well as encourage others to do so too.

In donating to our project, you will help us reach those who may be too scared to speak out about their issues, and this project will hopefully help them realise that they are not alone.

We want to give people voices so that they can share their experiences with others. We also want to give them the first steps for their wellbeing journey so that they can continue to thrive.

By funding us you will enable us to have a wider reach for not only Kingston students, but potentially others also in and around London. It will allow us to improve our website and also give us a chance to print more issues of the magazine. 

Where will the money go?

  • The money will be crucial to us producing our first print run of Swell, meaning we can reach even more students on campus who might not yet have found us online. We will also be improving our website, and funding future articles.
  • The money will go to improving the website, potentially having multiple issues printed of the magazine and fund articles which may need funding.
  • If we receive extra funds, we will invest this into bigger projects and articles surrounding student issues, trying to find organisations to potentially collaborate with.
  • We will be giving weekly updates on the campaign and how it is doing.


  • We will be able to shout out anyone who donates to this project.
  • We also can write an article interviewing yourself or about a subject you feel passionately about related to our magazine. This would go on our website.
