As the communities affected by Hurricane Sandy recover and rebuild, the overall impact of the storm on families and businesses remains difficult to comprehend. We send this message in support of those who are coping with this tragedy, and those who are bravely lending a hand.
Our biggest goal as a company is to bring something good into the world, especially during times like this when so many people need help. For the month of November, we will donate 10% of proceeds from all orders placed on our website directly to the relief effort. We hope that in doing so, we can help make the days ahead a little brighter for folks in need, while encouraging others to contribute however they can, too. Every bit counts!
We also want to take this opportunity to update our customers on how the storm has affected our company. We were very fortunate to escape the brunt of it up here in Boston, but we did experience some minor disruption to our production and shipping capabilities. We are working hard to minimize the impact on customers, and appreciate your patience as we get caught up.
For our new maps glassware product line, we’ve added Dallas, New York City, Hong Kong, and London to the cities we expect to ship before the holidays. Our expected shipping times for each city are as follows:
Boston, South Boston, L.A., Portland – in stock and shipping now!
Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago – ship mid November
Baltimore, NYC, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, DC, Austin – ship late November
London, Hong Kong, Dallas – ship early December
We continue to be in awe of the amazing response we’ve received on these, so thank you!
And be safe out there!
