Since we started Grain over seven years ago, there is one thing I feel especially proud of, and that’s the community that’s come together around what it is we’re doing here. It’s a great feeling knowing that you all love what we do. Some of you care about the boards, some about our values. In the end, it’s just great knowing that you care. And your kind and generous emails and cards, fresh baked cookie care packages and warmth toward us have been so important that words can’t express it.
But now, we’ve got a favor to ask: if you feel good about what we do, you can help us step it up a notch. We’ve been trying to figure out how we can afford to ever get a place of our own; a place with a great vibe where events you come to can be even better, a place where we can operate more sustainably… one that’s just got more room for everything.
What we need is for those of you with Facebook pages, to pop over and vote for us using Facebook Connect right here. It doesn’t cost anything, just takes a second, and will put us on the road to getting a $250K bump so that we can buy our own home. It’s a virtual barn raising if you will. Can you imagine? Grain Surfboards campus! After you connect, just search for us, and cast that vote! You can control how or if your vote gets seen in Facebook with a little permissions drop-down.
The other cool part is that for every vote, Chase Bank and Living Social add another $5 to a fund that can help even more small businesses. So you have a chance not only to help Grain, but maybe some other cool businesses out there that are doing good stuff, too. So please vote! It would mean the world to us. Thanks.
