We are thrilled, awed, and excited by the news of Patagonia’s Black Friday success. We are also super psyched we applied for and received a grant from this amazing company!!! Patagonia expected to have $2 million in sales on Black Friday, 100% of which will be donated to nonprofits like HEALTH for Youths. Instead they had $10 million in sales!!!!! You can read more in their post below and also click on the link of grantees – we are listed!
Thank you again Patagonia! We love you, your generosity and your enormous heart for our planet!!! http://www.patagonia.com/blog/2016/11/record-breaking-black-friday-sales-to-benefit-the-planet/
