The school is starting a school newspaper, and I suggested that we put in a sex ed section, and the teacher in charged said that sounded like a great idea. So I thought it would be a good idea, since I'm translating scarleteen articles anyway, to put them into the newspaper. We're also going to put in an anonymous question and answer column, and if I don't know the answer, I could put it on the website. Free publicity for Scarleteen, it's no extra work for me (because I'm doing it anyway), and people at school could get the education they so desperately need. And it'd sure be something the newspaper would sell for. I just wanted to ask permission. I hope it's ok!

Lindsy: I have no problem with this whatsoever. I think it's an awesome idea, especially if the newspaper raises funds for your school.
And just let your teacher know that if they feel they need to say an 'expert" double-checked them, that since I'll be doing as much when you translate anyway, I don't have a problem affixing my name to that and taking that responsibility.
