Bringing together a community of Salty Souls is so important to us. What is even more amazing is that this community is giving back to the next generation and helping them experience something we all hold so close to our heart, the ocean.
We only launched the brand this Spring but so many of you have supported us and today we want to say THANK YOU to this amazing community. Today is what we are most excited about. Our brand does not say Nantucket but this is where we are based and it is an incredible community that has helped us get off the ground with open arms. So our community efforts start here on Nantucket, today! To everyone who has made A Salty Soul purchase so far....this is happening because of YOU!
We are still working through the give back component but we knew we wanted to start with the community we call home. There is often the misconception that everyone living on Nantucket is a millionaire, and that is simply not the case. After many conversations throughout the winter, one gap was highlighted....surf lessons for local kids.
We are thrilled to share that A Salty Soul has made a donation to The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club funding surf lessons for the first time as part of their 2017 summer program. This organization is a critical part of our local community! None of this would be possible without Gaven over at ACK Surf School who has stepped in and offered discounted rates as well so more kids can learn to surf during this pilot program. So if you are on island, check out ACK Surf!
We look forward to seeing how this goes and as the brand grows, we cannot wait to work with more communities. This is just the beginning and thank you to everyone who helped to get us here! We welcome input and ideas, let's figure out together how to grow this!
