Primitive Trails

From time to time I stumble across a really interesting blog or website, I wanted to share one with you, as this has true meaning and was started here in this incredible part of America, in these Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. 
We Support Primitive Trails here at The Claiborne House

Have you heard of TOMS shoes? For every shoe they sell they give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. They've given away several million pairs since they started in 2006.

Primitive Trails, founded in Roanoke, VA, operates on a very similar model.  Instead of shoes, Primitive Trails donates a piece of clothing to a child in need with every sale. When you buy a shirt, they donate a shirt. When you buy a hoodie, they donate a hoodie.

"There are 2.6 million children living at or below the poverty level in rural America" says founder Brain Marshall, "and our goal is to help cloth them one piece of clothing at a time".

Who they are
  Born and raised in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia we are outdoor sports enthusiasts who want to do something to help.

  We also want to encourage you to spend time in the outdoors!  It's good for the soul and there is much to learn on the primitive trails.

The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast hopes you will consider Primitive Trails for your next hoodie purchase!
