Dear Ladies and Gents of Centuries Past,
It’s the last few days of the Fedex Small Business Grant contest, and we need your help. The finalist are decided upon a popular vote, and we’ve unfortunately fallen quite behind. The companies ahead of us are truly amazing and we’d like to be counted among them when the vote is up on April 5th!
The Fedex Small Business Grant awards several cash-and-service prizes to help support and grow tiny companies like ours. With the $25,000 prize, we can hire employees, develop new historic shoe styles and accessories, make more patterns and write more books, and explore options for domestic footwear manufacturing. It’s a big deal to us!
So please help us make it to the next round. Though we are small and nerdy, we are proud to be part of a wonderful, mighty community of historical costumers, and we thank you for your support. Voting is open until April 5th, and you can vote once every 24 hours.
With Much Love,
Lauren, Abby, Chris, and Jenny.
