We’re going full speed ahead with this plan to support AVERY TOUGH. AVERY TOUGH is a project brought together to raise money for a young girl named Avery who has experienced some major health issues. To save space you can read more about what’s going on with her on the TRVLSQD website but long story short it’s not fun stuff. We’re huge supporters of 1SFG out of JBLM and the father of Avery is a member of that group which is how we’re involved.
What it really comes down to is what are we going to do to help this family. When we worked on ARDEN TOUGH we were able to raise over $1,000 from sales on the site which was incredible. We want to do that again but this time for Avery. A four digit donation is absolutely our goal.
In addition to donating a good percentage of our sales to this cause we have added a new item to the store called AVERY TOUGH Donation. This item is exactly like when you’re checking out at the grocery store and the checker asks if you’d like to donate $1 today to some charity. When you’re checking out on the website you can pick up one or two of these to your cart and you’ll know that 100% of the sale of them is going to Avery.
In addition, Chris Cordova has been gracious enough to raffle off 10 of the above V1 De Espresso Liber patches using random.org with the names of the people who have donated. There may be other gifts given away during this process… only time will tell. I would like to give a huge shout out to Chris for recommending this and basically putting it together. I think having this “item” in the shop will be a great way to people to give a little extra if they would like.
