Congrats to Asheville Grown and its groundbreaking Go Local discount card program. With $15,000 worth of 2013 cards sold and $5,000 in expenses, local schools will receive $10,000 from sales of the 2013 card alone.

Congrats to all for a successful program. From Asheville Grown’s post today:

So far this year, we have raised on incredible $10,000 for our public schools and we are thrilled to be able to expand this program to include additional organizations dedicated to the future of our children and the health of our local community.

Starting in February, for 2 months, you can designate $5 of every online purchase of the 2013 Go Local Card to one of 5 local non-profits.  Each organization was selected to receive the proceeds because of specific programs they have developed in conjunction with our public schools.

Francine Delany New School for Children and ArtSpace, two charter schools serving our community, have also been selected as recipients.  Additionally, the option to donate $5 of your purchase to our public schools remains.

    Mod Sprog is proud to participate in this fundraiser by offering a discount to card holders. We are happy it supports the work of our public schools and now these great local non-profits as well.
    And increased awareness of our many wonderful, locally-owned businesses is always appreciated.
    Great job Asheville Grown!
