When we decided to close our doors this past weekend, we were optimistic that we'd open again by April 1st and confident we could pay our staff through then. But as mandatory closures drag on, we have decided to raise funds that will go directly toward paying our amazing team beyond April 1st.
We consider ourselves very lucky that we have a small team at a time like this. It is devastating to hear about our friends who have had to lay off much bigger teams just in order to survive. Because our team is small, and because we know that there are so many important fundraisers going on right now, we are setting our goal at $10,000, enough to keep our team healthy and safe during this period of uncertainty.
Please only give what you can. If you can't give now, we completely understand. It is a trying time for all of us.
Stay safe and healthy, talk to your loved ones, and come join us for a drink when things get back to normal.
With a lot of love and warm wishes,
Your Team at Getaway
