Dear Participating ReTreeUS School: As the holiday season draws near, we would like to thank you again for your support. We are now raising funds to install an orchard at your school next spring, and we would like to let you know about the two primary campaigns we have in progress.
      We would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word about the following opportunities:
Flatbread Pizza Benefit for ReTreeUS - Flatbread Pizza in Portland will host a benefit for ReTreeUS on January 31st. For each pizza purchased that evening, Flatbread will donate $3.50 to the ReTreeUS program. The dinner will be at the restaurant at 72 Commercial St # 5 Portland, ME 04101-4749, from 5 to 9 p.m., and a representative from ReTreeUS will be available to share information and answer questions.
      Both of the efforts mentioned above will benefit your school by helping to fund the installation of your orchard, as well as our educational workshops. Please help us spread the word by posting or distributing the attached Holiday Tree flyer to families. We will send another flyer for the Flatbread event after the New Year.
      Thanks so much for your help! We wish you a joyous holiday season.
Sincerely, Moriah Salter, ReTreeUS Co-founder,

WorldWide: Global home exchange community for Waldorf families

Dear Waldorf school:
I’m running the Waldorf home exchange community
, and would like to give you some information that I think would be interesting for your parents, students and teachers. I started WaldorfWide back in 2006 as my graduation project from Steiner school, and since then it has grown to become the world’s biggest network of Waldorf families who swap homes in their holidays. WaldorfWide is still – and will remain – a free service to the Waldorf community.
All the best,
Elías Christian Lundström
