As many of you may remember, we auctioned off our last remaining Citibot, featuring the iconographic NYC subway map on the kayak deck, with proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Efforts. This morning, Gordon Robertson of the American Red Cross came to the shop to receive our donation and present us with a plaque.
We are proud to have helped the Sandy relief efforts and our thoughts and prayers remain with the many victims that are rebuilding their lives, as well as the members of our Folbot family that experienced the storm and its aftermath.
While we could not physically be there to help, we were happy to hear that a former Folbot employee was part of the relief team that was distributing supplies in Long Island after Hurricane Sandy.
This photo was sent to us by one of our ambassadors in New Jersey who used his kayak to escape his house through the flood water. Again, we were so glad to hear that our products were of use to our customers in times when they needed it most.
Thank you to everyone for bidding and supporting the disaster relief efforts that are getting the families affected by Hurricane Sandy back on their feet.
