Announcing Our 2012 Eco-Charity
Each year Hiraeth Press donates 1% of its annual profits to an eco-charity of our choice. This year, in honor of Border Crossings: Walking the Haiku Path on the International Appalachian Trail by Ian Marshall, we have chosen the IAT (International Appalachian Trail) as the 2012 recipient.
“The Missions of the IAT: The mission of the International Appalachian Trail is to establish a long-distance walking trail that extends to all geographic regions once connected by the “Appalachian Mountain” range, formed more than 250 million years ago on the super-continent Pangea. In addition to connecting people and places, the goal is to promote natural and cultural heritage, health and fitness, environmental stewardship, fellowship and understanding, cross-border cooperation, and rural economic development through eco and adventure tourism.”
