Just a quick blog post to let you all know about the Wrappily Pop-up events happening on Maui. My friend Sarah Smith is the founder of this green project called Wrappily. It really is a cool idea! You can read more about it on their Indiegogo Campaign page. For now, let’s talk about the events:
The following events are being offered to their campaign backers as a way of saying thanks. Tickets are limited. It’s only 25 each so we are hoping it will go quick. When you buy the ticket, you become a campaign backer. I am posting about it here to help spread the word. Please share this post if you can.
