Help Send Gay to England!

Gay Hughes, owner and founder of GayGrace Teas, is the ultimate Anglophile, but she's never been to England! Help us send this lover of all things British to the UK!

In honor of her birthday this year, Ruth Kaminsky, long time friend of Gay's, came to Gay's daughter, Colleen, with the idea of sending Gay to England, and together they came up with the idea for this campaign!

For all those who love and cherish Gay as much as Ruth and Colleen do, they thought that perhaps for Christmas, a belated 2014 birthday gift or an upcoming 2015 birthday gift, you all might like to contribute something small or big to help Gay's dream become a reality.

"My mom loves all things English, from Downton Abbey, to Earl Grey Tea and blood sausages, to Wellies and everything in between. Ever since she created GayGrace Teas, she's been sharing that love with everyone around her, and I think it's time that we show our love for her, by helping to send her to the land of the Brits! I can't count the amount of hours she's spent talking about her dream of going to a real English Tea Room, and I can't wait to hear her talk about that dream coming true."
- Colleen Hughes, daughter

"Gay has been a friend of mine for over thirty years and I have heard her speak often of her love for all things British. Gay is one of a kind; so special, so sincere, so humble, and so kind. This year Colleen and I have been speaking about how to make this dream of traveling to England become a reality. For those who love her as I do, please consider, over the course of this year, of contributing to this fund for a Christmas/birthday/something special gift. I am kicking off this fund with the hopes that I will get to hear of Gay’s travel adventures in the near future!!"
- Ruth Kaminsky, long time friend of Gay's
