Christmas is practically here.The economy has hit many families. Mindful of the need for some pleasure during tough economic times, one couple, innkeepers at Rabbit Hill Inn, is sharing their good fortune once again. For those of you who missed this story and contest last year, here is good news. The Pink Slip Getaway Contest has been extended into 2011. And it will be ongoing throughout the year for couples who have been hit with joblessness. Full details are at Rabbit Hill Inn
As I wrote earlier, this is one of those heart-warming stories of a couple wishing to give some of the joy that they feel at that inn to other couples. This getaway contest is their gift.
The Mulcahys took a trip to a luxurious inn that they really could not afford in the White Mountains of Vermont. (Brian found himself unemployed but they needed respite.)
According to the ABC News report ‘We were worlds away from everything that could burden you, and nothing mattered except being a couple, ‘” she said.
“Today the Mulcahys own and run the inn. The harsh economy has left them with rooms to spare, so they hope to help other couples down on their luck.”
They held a Pink Slip Getaway contest for those out of work six months or more who wrote a letter telling their story. And the winners were given a free week-end. ABC News.go.com/WN/PersonOfWeek/story
Last week I learned that the Rabbit Hill Inn is ready once again to hand out good cheer and free stays to the unemployed.
According to Twitter friend Marie Coder of BnBFinder.com — Travel Bed and Breakfast Gift Certificates
“The inn, which has issued nearly a dozen complimentary getaways to unemployed workers struggling to keep their heads up, has decided to do it again.
“It’s not going away,” said Leslie Mulcahy, who runs the inn with her husband, Brian. “The people unemployed last year are still unemployed this year.”
