The lowdown:

We're committing up to $1000 to an epic 'pay it forward'

campaign around the Upper Valley helping those in need

and also providing some general positivity. To do so, we will

be relying on YOUR participation and guidance!

We will be hiding fake $50 bills around the Upper Valley

for you to find and participate in our campaign with.

(details below)

 here's how it works... 

We are launching the campaign with FOUR of the $50 bills

the week of 1/11! Next is where you come in:

1) Head to TRAIL BREAK and/or ORDER online

2) TELL us or TYPE in code word: "STOKE" when you order

3) We'll put 5% of your total bill towards the fund

4) We'll let that fund grow up to $800 through the end

of MARCH, putting out two more $50 'Share the Stoke'

bills each time the total reaches another $100
