Small Gestures Provide Urgent Relief
ANOTHER $5,000 angel donor has stepped up! The Gift Card Challenge Continues!
What if in 48-hours we could offer a little bit of breathing room, a show of our confidence and hope for our downtown community?
We set out Friday morning with a 48-hour gift card challenge where every online gift card purchased from a Downtown Brattleboro business will by matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 by a generous local donor. Matching gift cards will be distributed to families in need and will double the contribution you make to your favorite downtown business.
Well, we did it in about 3 hours. It was an incredible out pouring of support to our community. And one that was so needed.
But then at 8:45 Friday night another community member stepped up hoping a 2nd $5,000 match would ensure continued support coming in to downtown businesses.
We all have tears in our eyes!
What might seem a small gesture of good faith, will go a long way in helping restaurants, yoga studios, shops, hairdressers… our community. It will help to maintain a revenue stream to support the fixed costs of remaining closed or to continue to support people in earning a livelihood. You can use the gift cards later or gift them to friends and family as pick-me-ups.
Brattleboro: We will make it through this because we will do it together. In time Brattleboro’s community will rise up and rebuild, but for now we will stand far from each other so that we can embrace later.
Share your love for Downtown Brattleboro this weekend!
