Sundays thru December, 10 to 2…and Giving Away Money

Just for now, just for Deciembre: We’ll be open on Domingo from 10 to 2. It’s because  Yes, we need the money, and Also, because the shopping days are few and often spent in major shopping areas not here, so an extra four hours on Sundays makes it easier.

We’ll get the phones then, too, but may not be able to research current or past orders—not on Sunday, at least. Takes too much time.

—————- Let’s Talk About Giving Away Money ————-

There’s this charity and it’s a really good one. In a sentence it teaches public schoollers how to write. gets them into books and reading, too. Really supportive, super effective, and the writings are published in real books you can buy, too. This is a charity we wholly endorse and want to support. We’ve already sent it a couple of hearty donations this year, and will send at least that much again even though it’s a lean time for us, because it’s so, so worthwhile. And we’ll make it easy for you to donate, too. Click up there or right here and read about it. Find the donation link and donate. You’ll be emailed a thanks and proof, and you forward that to donations{at} (just email the donation receipt there, don’t ask tech questions, etc.), and we’ll cut you a credit here for 40% of your donation, up to $300. Guarantee a speedy turnaround by including your customer number, which you can find on an old invoice or search your emails for subject “ order confirmation” and the number is on the top right.  That’ll make it easy.

So, you donate $10 and you get a credit for $4. A hundred gets you forty, and so on—- up to that max $300 credit.

Donate in $10 increments to make the math easy. Hundreds even better.

It’s tax-deductible, 100 percent.

Assuming you’re going to buy stuff here anyway, what this means is it costs you forty cents on the dollar to support this fantastic, worthy, needy, productive charity that is so effective that there have been spinoffs in other parts of the country, too.

As icing on the cake, it is also the only independently owned and operated pirate supply store in the country, probably the world.

Get on it, and we’ll process your credit within two business days, probably the same day, but give us two. Progress reports at least weekly. And each week, now thru the end of December, we’ll calculate your donations and match them up to $1,000. Per week. This is a good charity, so let’s go. Thanks. G.

Sound good?
