How does a recurring subscription to Bravery work?
As soon as you subscribe, we send you the latest issue of Bravery. You will receive all future issues for the recurring quarterly price of $18 (we produce 4 issues per year). You can manage your subscription, update your billing and shipping info, and cancel at any time, no strings attached.
What does a recurring subscription include?
A recurring subscription to Bravery includes a magazine, a corresponding patch, a collector card, a digital PDF of all the issue's activities sent to your inbox, and free shipping to US residents—a $30 value!
What should I do if the patch is missing from my recurring subscription?
First, check in the front inside cover of your magazine. We now affix subscription patches to the inside cover with a little glue dot. If your patch isn't there, please contact customer service at email@example.com and we will assist you with the replacement.
What is a gift subscription?
A gift subscription is a one-time payment of $72 that includes four issues of Bravery shipped throughout the year. You will not have a recurring charge as part of this subscription option. The gift subscription includes the magazine only. At this time, we are not able to make gift subscriptions available to international customers.
What's the difference between a recurring subscription and a gift subscription?
With a recurring subscription, you will be automatically billed $18 a quarter and sent four issues a year. The recurring subscription includes a magazine, a PDF download of all the issue's activities, a corresponding patch, and free shipping to US residents. Recurring subscriptions are also available worldwide!
With a gift subscription, you make a one-time payment of $72. With this payment, you will receive four issues sent quarterly throughout the year. Once you've received your last issue, you will not be billed and you will not receive more magazines. The gift subscription only comes with a magazine and does not include the extras included with the recurring subscription. Gift subscriptions are only available to US residents and cannot ship worldwide.
I'm already a subscriber. What happens to my existing subscription?
Starting with issue 10 (Maya Angelou), all new subscribers will be on a quarterly recurring billing plan for only $18. Existing subscribers will move to the quarterly recurring billing plan upon their next charge. IE: if you were charged $72 in January and are still due three more issues, you'll receive these issues and then be charged $18 once per quarter after those three issues have been sent.
Can I subscribe to Bravery if I live outside of the U.S.?
Yes! We are finally able to provide recurring subscriptions to our international customers! Subscribe now for $18 (once per quarter billing). Gift subscriptions are only available to US residents.
Does Bravery ship Internationally?
Yes! We now offer international shipping on all Bravery products, including recurring subscriptions! Gift subscriptions are the only product not available for worldwide shipping.
Does Bravery pay duties and fees for items shipped outside the U.S.?
No. The customer is responsible for all duties and fees when items are shipped internationally.
All About Bravery Magazine
What age is the magazine created for?
We have designed Bravery with girls and boys ages 5-12 in mind, but there’s something for every age in Bravery. We’ve heard our customers say that older and younger kids enjoy Bravery too, and we have a parent section for adults. Basically, Bravery is for everyone! Interested? Check out our Kickstarter campaign video here
Is Bravery just for girls?
Nope! We specifically designed Bravery Mag with girls AND boys in mind. We feel like it is important for all kids to learn from the lives and experiences of real, brave women.
Why doesn’t Bravery feature men too?
We believe that men and women together can accomplish great things, but what inspired us to start Bravery was the lack of strong female role models and their stories in mainstream society. We want Bravery Magazine to be the place to share the stories of real, brave women.
What will I find inside the magazine?
Bravery Magazine is full of illustrated stories, fun DIYs, and educational activities that all teach about the featured woman and the many facets of her life. There’s even a parent section with essays, reflection questions, and a little bit of humor. We handpick artists to create original art and content for us so that each issue of Bravery is unique, beautiful, and empowering. To see a flip through of our first issue, click here.
Why is this only a print magazine? Will you ever have a digital version?
In a very digital age, we felt that it was important that we give our children something tangible–something they could hold and read, feel, and touch. We love that our magazine will give them something to do that doesn’t involve a screen. We have recently made all activity pages available in digital format! Become a subscriber to receive a digital downloads of each new issue's activity pages or check out our new companion guides—curricula that includes unit study guides, extra resources, and digital versions of all the back issues' activity pages.

What is a companion guide?
A companion guide is a curriculum that works hand-in-hand with issues of Bravery. It includes extra resources like links to coordinating, educational YouTube content, podcasts, books, and more. The guide also includes all of the activity pages from the corresponding magazine!
What is considered an activity page?
An activity page is anything from the magazine that requires coloring, writing, drawing, or other similar types of interaction. With digital copies of these pages, your magazine will live longer. Print off as many copies as you like for multiple kids to do over and over again—no more arguing over who gets to do the activities!
