Letters: Fur Flap, A Gift of Land, More Yoga

Rhode Island Monthly readers weigh in.

Style, January

I am extremely disappointed in Rhode Island Monthly for the inclusion of the "Fur Sure" Style pages. Shame on you for advocating the horrible fur industry. It's time to get out of the dark ages and stop blatantly promoting products such as these.

What a shame that the industry and the people who buy fur care more about fashion instead of seeing these animals as the sentient beings they are.

Rhode Islanders of the Year,” December

When Paul Santucci was featured as one of the Rhode Islanders of the Year in Rhode Island Monthly, a couple in Chepachet reached out to him to offer their land so God’s Little Acre can expand. They were willing to give him about half an acre, and they’ll do longer season crops like beets and butternut squash. He hopes to be able to get at least another 5,000 pounds out of the plot.

Paul is thrilled. He’s been looking to expand for a while and is grateful that the exposure from the article helped make that happen!

Thank you so much on behalf of St. Philip’s Pantry, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank and all of our clients who will benefit from more fresh produce.

Thank you so very much for the recognition in the December edition of Rhode Island Monthly. I am so humbled and grateful.
Thanks to the positive exposure, Shri is now serving even more community partners, both on and off the yoga mat.
