Reminder: 3 More Days to Help Us... Help

Tomorrow is Labor Day, and as usual the shop will be closed. A lot of Vermonters are spending this Labor Day - a day usually filled with cookouts, end of season hikes, boat rides & family gatherings - helping other Vermonters clean up after Irene. People are pitching in and doing what they can to lend a hand and it's so heartwarming.

As a reminder - in case you missed it in our email last week, on our homepage or on our Facebook page - we have been setting aside 25% of our daily sales since Friday of last week from both the shop and the website. This money will be donated to the Vermont Foodbank, to help Vermonters who've been hardest hit. While we're not able to lend a hand and do the physical cleanup ourselves, this is a way we hope to offer some assistance.
There's still time to help, as we're running this through Wednesday, September 7th at midnight EST.

The cleanup in our state is ongoing, and the weather forecast for the next couple of days is dreadful, calling for 1-4" more of heavy rain in areas of Northern New York and Vermont, with more flash floods possible. This could bring more disaster to folks who've already been hit the hardest. We're crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.

Thanks so much for your support.
