It gives us extra pleasure to announce a new way you can show your support without committing any extra money or time. From September 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014, your regular online shopping benefits Featherstone Arts through Vineyard fundraising site Tisbury Turkey. Whether you are planning a purchase at Amazon, want to book travel through Orbitz, or simply browse the assortment of large and small online stores, you can raise money for Featherstone when you start your shopping at TisburyTurkey.com

Here’s how it works:
  1. Visit www.TisburyTurkey.com
  2. Click on the “Shop” menu in the left margin and select “Shop Online.”
  3. Select your favorite store from the list and press “Go” or view the complete Store Guide.

Every store link on the Tisbury Turkey site will lead you to the store’s main site, where you can shop and checkout as usual. There is no special login or promo code required, but because you started at Tisbury Turkey, Featherstone will receive a donation--approximately 5-10% of your spending!

We will be sharing more about Tisbury Turkey in the upcoming weeks, including new ways for your purchase of Island-made goods can benefit Featherstone.  Be sure to stay tuned for news about stores, products, and promotions through Tisbury Turkey throughout our campaign. You can also follow Tisbury Turkey on Facebook and Twitter, and subscribe to their newsletter here.
