Thanks to You All, We Won a Grant!


 Dear friends,

This is a VERY belated thank you.

On December 2nd we were notified that not only did we win one of the three 2013 Green America People and Planet $5,000 grants for Green Travel and Tourism, we received THE MOST VOTES OF ALL BUSINESSES!

Wow.

Needless to say, we were (and are) beside ourselves. So, so happy. And what even better than the money is the outpouring of support that we received from all of you. Thank you so, so much for logging on to the Green America site and voting for the Milkweed Mercantile!

We even made the front page of the local Memphis Democrat Newspaper.

Thank you also to all of the good folks at Green America.They do a lot more than give out money to cool green businesses that we love. They are doing really valuable work in all areas of sustainability.


We're still waiting to hear about the $250,000 Chase grant. It is, indeed, a long shot, but would be such a game-changer that the very idea of it takes my breath away. All their website says about the date of the award announcement is this: "...a list of grant recipients will be posting on the program website in January 2014."

more soon!

love,
Alline
